23 Thoughts You Have After You Submit Your Disney College Program Application

I'm wishing... For a Disney recruiter... To contact me (to contact me) today (today).

Waiting for anything is rough. Maybe you just sent in a job application, and you're just waiting anxiously to find out the results. You check your email every few hours, hoping to see a specific name at the top of a new email, but still nothing yet. How long do you have to wait to hear back? Don't these people check their emails?

But If you've ever applied for the Disney College Program, you know that it's a completely different ballgame. Waiting to hear back from Disney is unlike any other job application. It's so much more important than just a job application. It can be so frustrating to wait for the response after you finally submit your application, and if you over think everything as I do, you might have some of these thoughts after you initially send the application.

1. Oh my goodness, I can't believe this is really happening.

I don't know what to do with myself.

2. I can't believe I just submitted it.

I've been refreshing the page since 11:30 waiting for it to open at noon.

3. Who should I tell? I've got to tell somebody.

Because everybody wants to know that I just applied to work at the most magical place on earth.

4. I'll just tell everybody.


5. I wonder how long I have to wait to hear back.

It's already been 5 minutes. Is that too soon to hear back?

6. I could always just check my email... Never hurts to make sure.

Aaaaaand nothing. Well that's disappointing.

7. Okay, celebratory coffee time!

But I've already got the jitters, so maybe I don't need that coffee after all...

8. Gotta tell Mom. She'll be so excited.

And of course she is! She loves Disney just as much as I do.

9. Wait, I have to tell my friends who have done the DCP.

And why not just comment it on the DCP Facebook page's photo as well?

10. I wonder what happens if I get a web-based interview.

Do they just email back and forth with you? Or is it like an online survey thingy?

11. I wonder what happens after the web-based interview.

Probably more interviews, I'm guessing.

12. I wonder where the performer auditions will be.

Oh, look! There's one just 2 hours away from me!

13. I just have to check my email again.

Still nothing? Are you serious?

14. According to this article, it could be an hour or several WEEKS before I hear back about the application...

That's a big difference in time.

15. Oh no, now I'm so nervous. What if I don't get into the program?

My life will be ruined.

16. I checked over the application 14 times before submitting it, but what if I still forgot something?

I knew I should've just put that all of the roles were high interest.

17. My entire life relies on this program working out. What if I never get to do it?

Then my friends will think they're all better than me.

18. Shoot, I just know that somebody else's application will look better than mine. Disney won't want me.

This has always been my dream. I'd do anything to make Disney want me.

19. Time to pray.

God, I know that you control everything... But could You please just control this and make it happen? Ha, I'm just kidding. But really, if it's Your will, let it happen. If not, I know that You're protecting me from something.

20. Maybe if I just check one more time for an email...

Dang it! Seriously? Maybe I need to wait a little longer.

21. Well maybe the email hasn't gone through yet. I better check the application page just to make sure.

Yep. Still nothing.

22. I wonder if anybody else on the Facebook page has applied yet.

Wait... No way...

23. That girl got a web-based interview already?! Why haven't I heard back yet? They must hate my application.

I'm a failure. I just knew it.

24. I have got to just busy myself. If I keep looking at my email, I'll never hear back.

I swear I won't look at my email again for at least an hour.

25. How about I check one last time...

We all tell ourselves that same lie.

Long story short, I'm still waiting to hear back. Best of luck to everyone who applied or is going to apply! Don't fret if you haven't heard back yet. You're not the only one. People tell me all the time that it's the chance of a lifetime, and hopefully, someday I'll get to experience it too.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
