    I think it would be an awesome job...I just can't draw haha but I'm not sure if that's the type of work that I would be completely interested in...still, a job in WDW would be AWESOME

    and as a freshman in college, I wouldn't suggest doing at the beginning of college...I am seriously considering it, but probably not until junior year

    Boy, may I interject some wisdom here???? Either do CP early in your college career or save some of Gen Eds. The Disney Program is accredited but in MOST instances it is Gen Ed credits. My son CP'd his Junior year and he nor I would trade it for the world. However it did lengthen his college years because he had done all his Gen Eds already and just accumulated more of them. The program put him into a management position in his seasonal summer job. The name "Disney" opens many doors and at least grants you an interview out of curiosity.
    Disney carries weight in the business world.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Very good point; I probably didn't even think of it. However... I mainly said that because at 19 now, I know I wouldn't at least be ready for that (even if I was, I don't know if I would want to yet). Also, I've already played around with my degree audit and I've already begun to knock out some requirements and major classes; I'd rather save my Gen Ed credits as much as possible so I could do things like this later on in college. I guess every person is different in how they go about it...

    I know 2 people well who have down the CP program, both as juniors. One is my good friend's older sister, she did it fall of her junior year and graduated on time; the other, someone from my high school, did it spring of his junior year, and he is set to graduate on time this spring.

    But it would be a week to 2 weeks old and it just won't taste the same.
