Thank you so much for your insight DAA, it's been a big help.

I'm applying for AVS, had a bit of a snafu with extra medical forms and a credit issue that has to be figured out, but that should be taken care of this week. Just have my interview to do after that and then hopefully I'll get everything done in time to make it in for an early 2014 BMQ. I don't know if I'm being overly optimistic at this point or no, but I guess we'll see. Good luck to everyone!

This is from DAA... I asked about selections on Nov 21...

Once the selections are done, then the results need to be validated.  Once they are validated, they must be approved.  After they are approved, then the results are sent to the respective CFRC's for continued processing.

So your CFRC probably isn't going to receive anything until early next week.

I wonder if I'll remember the excitement and anxiety I'm feeling now when a MCpl is yelling at me in St Jean. :)

Here's to hoping. I was Merit Listed on the 15th, guess my interviewer looked past my faults.

Good luck to everyone, soon we may be meeting face to face.

I had a friend years ago who applied and was offered Crewman but he turned it down.

When I found out, I asked him why?

His response, "Are you crazy!  There's no way I was about to take a job working on a ship!"   :rofl:
Got a question that you're afraid to ask online?  PM me!  I don't bite........

Not all BMQ dates seem to be put on the website. Websites only function as good as their given "up loaders and updaters". DAA has confirmed BMQ for Jan 6, 14, 20 and 28th 2014 start dates. All are Mondays flown out the Friday before. Mesh with your platoon that weekend (start your geling/chemistry then) it will be awkward that weekend not knowing what to do, how to act etc. Just remember. Thousands have been there before. Congrads to everyone called thus far! Merry Christmas to all called! We are in for cold BMQ's (hope you get Article Gear as part of your kit).

Do I have a chance of getting in at all, at least in the first few months of 2014? I don't wanna be waiting until next fall  :-\

SMG I - it all depends on selection dates. What was published the last few weeks was Nov 14, 21st and 28th as selection dates. I personal have not heard of December dates as of yet. Normally it will depend on your occupation choices and how many openings there are in your choice.
