    Oh yes. Don't let the weather make up your mind for you. The CP was one of the best times of my life. I hope to go back for the Fall 2006 CP (or the summer, at least). If you would like to talk my AIM is joanna71985. Good luck.

    something to think about that was told to me before i interveiwed. One of my best friends was the first CP'er ever from my college, (and i was one of the third groups taken from my college, there were 3 of us so i gues i was either 3,4, or 5 whatever you choose).

    She told me that an easy way to almost insure that you will get picked is to ask for Quick Service Food and Beverage (Fast food) as your first and only choice, if you REALLY want to go. It was a no brainer for me, i was a restaurant management major, so it made sense. but seriously, if you are clean cut, polite, and present yourself well, then asking for foods will almost gaur. you a spot. one of the perks of working in foods is that this is where you will be working with the most other CP's. the vast majority of folks chosen go into foods roles. you will be working with a ton of folks that are doing the same thing as you are, and you'll make fast friends. Dont be afriad to ask for other jobs if you dont like foods, there are plenty of other roles, just remember that you will be fighting for a highly desirable job against many people.

    For the record, the most happy and laid back CP's i was friends with on the program were Custodial hosts/hostesses. most talked to guests all day long and did little to no work all day. they get the MOST guest interaction.

    I believe that about the custodial doing little to no work and just chatting with the guests. My friend and I sat on a bench and talked with a custodial CM for at least thirty minutes. It was pretty nice.

    Thanks for all the help you guys! I'm sure I'll be in contact with you guys because there's sooo much to think about. I pretty much just started thinking about this tonight, but I'm almost completely positive that I want to do it. I've already written down the day the rep. will be at my school. When I think of more questions I'll hunt you down! Hehe, thanks again!

    I'm a senior in high school right now and I plan on going to the local community college. Does a CP rep come to local colleges like that or do I have to wait until I transfer to a bigger school?
    Thanx,

    Disney did not visit my school when i was selected. one of my good friends was the first one to do the program from our Uni, and she came back and told me all about it. i drove 3 hours to interview, and was selected in the third class of CP'ers from my school ever (3 of us were selected, only 2 other folks had ever been chosen from our school). I told so many of my friends about the program while i was down there and the word of mouth was so strong in my "seven degrees" that the fourth class of CP'ers from my Uni was 20 strong! they now visit my old school 2 times a year!!!

    so never fear that just because they dont come to your school, doesnt mean you can't be selected. Oh, and BTW, CC's are eligible as well. some of the largest groups of CP'ers when i was on the program were from Chicago area CC's for some reason. anybody have a similar experience?

    you don't have to go to a bigger school, as long as you're a college student, you're welcome to attend the presentation. When I applied, the presentation was at a local university, whereas i was studying at a technical college.

    And, not to mention, you can apply on the internet and do a phone interview as well.
    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    Who watches the watchmen?
