You're very welcome, and yes you got it right! I think both of you need to go online and request each other as roommates.

I met my roommate through Facebook (as well as DISboards) too!!

It's so strange to me that you can request roomies now, or even find out your roomies in advance!

When I was your age (haha ) we had to show up in the apartment to find out who our roomies were!

Exactly. I have never done the roomie selection, and probably won't next CP either.

I return with a dim-witted question. During my phone interview, I completely forgot a very important thing: to request a specific date off. That date happens to be my fianceé's graduation!

Do I email college recruiting with the request, or do I work on it once I get there?

When is the graduation? Is it towards the middle/end of your CP or in the beginning? If it is towards the end I would wait til you get down, then put in for it off. If it is in the beginning of your CP I would email the recruiter. If course, you could just email, but that's what I would do.

Thanks for the info, Joanna. My dates are 1/9 - 5/16 and the graduation if 5/3 (not sure what day of the week it is). So definitely towards the end.

Ah, I see. Well, if you don't want to wait til you get down you can email your recruiter. But I think it would be find if you ask when you get down.

Still another week of waiting!

I called Disney today, and my app. is the top of there list today. Today is the two week mark from my interview. I guess one more week of waiting is not going to kill me. They said that they should be sending a letter out to me ether today or tommarow.
One more stupid question! Can anyone tell me about how long it takes from the time they sent the letter to when you get it in your mailbox? Basicly, I would like to know if anyone can look at there letter and see what day it was postmarked for and compare it to the day you got it in the mail?

I know, Im freaking out! These last two week have been the longest two weeks in my life. I want this so bad, and If I don't get it I will be crushed! LOL But anyway, all this time I have been posting I have not really gave any information about myself so here you go!

Name: Travis Barber
Age:19
School: Sophmore at Springfield College in Illinois
Term I applied for: Spring Advantage 2008
Role I Applied For: I told them any, but I would really like to be in Front End Opperations!
E-Mail: travis_barber@sci.edu
Moods I'm Feeling:

So ya! I would love to get to know some of you, just shoot me a e-mail!

Hi Travis,
Not a stupid question at all! My acceptance packet was marked April 6, 2007 (Friday), and I received it on April 9, 2007 (Monday).
