    My son's friend was also selected for the WDW college program for Aug-Jan. My son is thrilled because he goes to college in St. Augustine and his friend will be in Orlando. From what I hear it's a great program.

    I know that you have to have so many classes completed to do the internship, you can check on there site www.wdwcollegeprogram.com and it should explain, also it will give her the schedule when they will be in your area so you can attend there seminar.
    For culinary schools I purchased a book that rated all the schools in the US and that helped!!!:earsgirl: :earsgirl:

    Once they get an interview for the program, they need to make a good impression, be enthusiastic. It's also the time to make their wishes known if they prefer a certain type of "job."

    My friend got in twice. The first time she was selected for food service, and she chose to decline, for a number of reasons, but part of it was that she didn't want to work at a food cart when she was a hotel management major.

    When she applied a second time, at the interview she explained that she got in once before but declined, and when they asked her why, she explained that she really wanted to work in a resort because of her major, and she got in at the Poly!

    It was a great experience for her, and the discounts were amazing!

    My daughter will also be there Aug. to Jan. She will be a Lifeguard. She gets more excited the closer it gets. I need to find out about transportation from MCO to Vista for her. She will be flying in at 6:30 a.m. and it makes me a little nervious. Any suggestions?

    I think I read where they can take the Mears Transportation to the Vista apartments.. I would call the WDW college rep to make sure.
    Good Luck to your daughter!!
    I know mine is very excited..(Shannon)

    Thanks LuvTigger:earsgirl:
