    question

    hey i got a couple questions. so im thinking about applying for fall advantage 2010 once your are able to apply, soo her are some questions
    1. if you apply right when the application comes up usually how soon can you have your interview.
    2. if you apply early does it take longer to get the acceptance letter or is it still the same amount of time.
    3. and if i apply for fall advantage and its full can i still go for fall or no?
    thanks for all the help

    Re: question

    1. It could be anywhere from the next day, to several days later.

    2. It depends. Some people who applied early took quite awhile, while others found out quickly. The average wait time is 2-4 weeks (though it can be longer then that).

    3. Yes, if you tell them. You would have to say you can do either, but prefer to do FA.

    Re: question

    Thanks. I'm debating if I get it if I should audition to be a character. Because I really want to try and get attractions. If I got accepted do I audition and if I fail then do they place me somewhere. Or am I placed somewhere before I audition and then if I fail do I go to that role??

    Re: question

    For the Spring 2010 semester, they did something new (that they've never done before). If you were going to audition, they placed you in another role that you picked first. Then if you passed the audition, you were switched over to character performer. But if you didn't pass the audition, you were already accepted with a role (in the past, you had to wait until after the audition to find out if you were accepted, and what role you got).

    Also, if you want to audition, it would be before you were accepted (you have to let them know you want to audition during the interview).

    I have never auditioned before. But I have friends that have and they said that it is a pretty basic routine. They had very little dance experience at all and they did very well.

    I've auditioned before, and I never found the dance part to be terribly difficult. A little tricky at times, but not too bad.
