Hey Buck,

I have applied for ROTP-CivU and my trades are INF O, ARTY O, and ARMD O. I have been competition listed since the first week of February. I have already accepted an offer to a civilian university on the guidance of my MCC. My question is, at what point should I start to worry? I have heard they offer people as late as June, but in rare circumstances. Not to sound pessimistic but is there much chance of being selected left? I have heard most offers occur in February/March.

Thanks,

JP

Because your MCC advised you to accept the offer I would suggest that you reach out to the MCC and verify with them.  They have the points of contact to see if you should still be waiting for a potential offer or not.

Thanks Buck, just his wording made it seem like I was far off from an offer. "This means you need to make a decision on which Offer of Admission to accept, and hope that you are accepted into the ROTP."

Hi JP,

The military is non-committal on things like that for legal purposes.

It's no different than if someone doesn't meet the entry standards for an occupation - for legal reasons I cannot tell them to upgrade and take the required course.  In this case your MCC can't tell you what to accept/decline as they cannot promise you an offer of employment.  Your best source of information on the likelihood of getting information on a possible job offer is your CFRC.

Without knowing what occupation you want and where you sit on the competition list I cannot give you any advice; which is where we suggest getting ahold of your local CFRC so that you can discuss your file with them.

Hi Buck,

Just a quick question, I read in other threads that there is no CFAT required for PRes Direct Entry Officers anymore. If I happened to get a civilian job while waiting for an offer, and I wanted to transfer my application for a DEO to a PRes unit would my CFAT score go with my file, and be included into consideration even though it's not required?

Thanks for all your help

Your CFAT is good for life; so if you change your application the score "follows" your application.  Depends on which PRes unit you're wishing to join but most that I've been involved with hold their own interviews and based on your interview with the unit is depending on whether they give you a job offer or not.

Hey Buck,

My recruiter emailed me that my file was sent off to Ottawa to get final decision.

So does it mean I am in merit list and the Board is processing my case...


Thank you!

Hey Buck what does this mean?
I've been on the list since mid Feb. This is the recent reply I got from customer service about an update on my file from a few days ago.

"You are currently on the Competition list. Your file is being reviewed for selection however we can not provide you with a time frame for this process.
Please be patient as you will be informed if you have or have not made the selection and will be given further instructions at that point"


Thank you for your time.
