    wait time for acceptance

    I just had my interview this morning. Waiting is going to be the hardest part of this process. How long does it usually take for the College Recruiting to send your letter? They said three weeks, but I've seen some people say a week later too.

    They told my DS 3 weeks and it was a week later when his acceptance package arrived. It was to come to the house but Disney mailed it to his dorm PO Box instead, so DS waited 2 weeks since he rarely checked his mailbox at school. Check both places. Best of luck! Let us know!

    It can vary. My first time, it took 11 days for the letter to come. The second time took over 2 months (but that is because I auditioned, and I applied at the beginning of the season). My third time took about 2.5 weeks. And the fourth time took over 5 weeks! I just about died from the wait.

    Good luck to you!! Hopefully it comes really soon.

    5 weeks?!? And here I've been hearing good response times (2 weeks on average), except for character performers, because of the additional audition.

    Joanna, you have just struck fear in my heart! (And it's 2 months until the interviews start! )

    J/K, but man... I hope it's not more than 3 weeks... I'd implode. :P

    For people who applied for Spring 2009, the wait was longer then normal on average (about 3-4 weeks). There were people who got letters sooner. But on average, the wait was longer for some reason. Hopefully that won't be the case for Fall 2009. I really want good news quickly (hopefully).

    i just applied this wednesday too!!!! its only been 4 days and the wait is already unbarable!!! >_< lol. but im worried that mine will arrive later rather than sooner because at the end of the interview when i asked her about how long it would take to arrive, she started to say about 2 weeks, then when she realized i was from california, she said it will prolly take longer, like 3 to 4 weeks!!! NO!!! not fair. but your from arizona, right next door, so maybe we'll get it round the same time. did they give you a specific lenth of time it would take for yours to arrive?
