    As others have put before it is a rewarding experience but it is what you make of it.
    A word of caution: You may get stuck with crappy roommates. My first set of roommates were pretty much using the CP as a three month party away from school. Thats probably why most of them got termed before they completed their program. On the other hand i know people who love their roommates. I would just be prepared for the worst and hopefully your roommates will be fine.
    I bet you were relieved they got sent home. Did you have the place to yourself for a while? That was probably pretty nice..

    I guess I must be lucky, because over 3 CPs none of my roomies have been termed. I hope it stays that way over the next ones too.

    I agreeMy CP'er is still there until Jan. 4th. They have 6 in their Vista Way apts. They are still together as are their friends in other apts., my guess is as happy as they will be to go home/back to college and see their family and friends it is going to be difficult to leave their Disney friends that became their new family for 6 months.

    I'd send my other student to CP, everything in life has a downside but I think the CP, the good things far out weigh the negative. Hope you all have an enjoyable time like my CP'er has. Now go have the time of your life

    I am a senior in high school right now, but ive been interested in the college program for a few years now....working in WDW is something that I have always dreamed of doing, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to do so! I dont think Ill apply until im like a junior in college, which will be in like 2011, because I want to go in the spring, but I CANNOT wait until the time comes for me to go! From all your stories, it sounds like it was just as great as it sounds!

    well if you lived in Florida you could try to be in the Headstart Program. it's set up for highschool students, and i met several great kids from that program while i was there. i hope you get the chance to live your dream, i remember that first time walking onto property and thinking "I work in Disney World." you'll never be quite the same again after that.
