I would contact the college, but probably not admissions. See if you can set up an appointment with a counselor (or whatever they call that position in college) as they probably know if the school will give credit. I doubt admissions would know.

At my school we are usually told to go through our Career Services Center to look into the CP. (and through our specific departments.) See if your prospective schools have career services and get in touch with them.

Has anyone read anything about the concierge role? It sounds interesting, but I can't find anything on it.

I know it's next to impossible to do if that's not your major in college, but other than that, that's all I know. There was a thread on here not to long ago about the roles, and it had different links to peoples blogs who did them.

Well hospitality probably won't be my major, so I probably shouldn't worry about it then. I read that thread, but all it had on concierge was the vague description Disney gives on the CP website.

If I remember correctly, queenofpriderock talked a little bit about it in one of her vlogs, and I think there is a thread on it alone, that popped up a few days ago.

I know that it's all backstage. I believe that it's handing out costumes to other workers and things like that. I don't have too much info... but I do know those few things.

I know pretty much the same stuff that belladisneydancer just said. Some other things though is that you could be doing entertainment costuming (characters, parade dancers, show performers, etc.) or cast member costuming (work uniforms). I read that you'll have to work washers and dryers sometimes. I also read that the entertainment costumes can be quite heavy, so you might have to do a bit of heavy lifting. Other than that I haven't read much about it either.

Well for concierge, its newer, so a lot of people haven't done it. For costuming, a lot of CPs don't do it because they like guest interraction and costuming guest interraction is pretty much zero. It just kind of depends on the role. Most roles have a lot of info about them because more people do them. These are a few that most CPs don't do, so less info.

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. One thing I just realized is that fall 2012 would be my sophomore year in college not 2013 Are you a junior in hs wdwislife? If you are I think our math was a little off lol. But with that being said, I wouldn't be able to go to London in 2012 to be at the olympics, which is something that I really, really, want to do... how cool would it be to see michael phelps become the greatest olympic champion EVER? (I'm just as much as an olympic fanatic as I am disney) I don't know if I could still do fall 2012 and just not do advantage or what. Plus going to london would be super expensive but I feel like that's a once in a lifetime thing... ugh I can't believe I'm stressing about this when it's two years away lol.
