you'll find out anywhere from a week after your interview to several weeks. I found out in about 10 days that I got in.

you'll also be able to request your preference of where you'd like to live, and how many roommates you would like to live with in your apartment (1-4 rooms), but that might not be fully decided until you get down there (I'm not for sure on this, it's my first time in the college program!)

I've heard Chatham is nice too, Patterson is also nice, but has no bus stop, so you have to walk to Chatham to catch the bus (it's across the street, so it's not too far of a walk). and Vista is the party place from what I've heard...

hope that helped! :)

Oh, wow! Thanks for info. I'd much rather be close to the bus stop. And thanks for the info about Vista. I like to party but I'd rather not live there, you know? Wow, you know a lot! How did you learn all that? :P

I've been reading a lot of things like messageboards, and college program groups on facebook, they're very helpful! :)

Hi Jennie! Welcome to the community. Good luck with your interview tomorrow. just remember to sound cheerful and know what 5$ - (3 x 1.50$) = and what you'd do if a guest who is obviously very excited wants to ride thunder mountain when you're working there but the guest isn't tall enough.

As for a time frame, I attended the seminar 3/12, interviewed 3/14 and got an email that my application is processing and I will find out in 4-6weeks on 3/23. I haven't heard anything else yet so . . . I have my fingers crossed!

Great, thanks for all that information! I've worked in retail forever so hopefully when they ask that question, I'll be able to answer quick enough. I didn't take a math this semester so hopefully it won't be a big fail. :P
