Question regarding ROTP timelines; After the "application date" some transcripts need to be uploaded to the RMC. How long does it normally take to review these transcripts and get first contact? I took a trawl through this thread but most posters aren't specifying if they are ROTP/DEO.

Additionally, since ROTP deadline isn't technically until Jan 31 2018, do applicants have to wait until around then to write their CFAT? Or would I be proceeding with a 'normal' CFAT timeline?

Question regarding application process times and ROTP; after sending in my application, I have to send in additional transcripts to be evaluated by RMC. Once my transcripts have been uploaded, how long should I expect to wait before I receive first contact from a recruitment centre (assuming my grade are up to par)?

I trawled through this thread but most posters don't specify if they are ROTP/DEO. Thanks.

Edit; oops, posted this to another thread earlier today but completely forgot I made that post. My bad (would still appreciate feedback though)

Consider yourself responsible for your own application, a week after sending the transcript, call the RC or visit them in person and ask for an update and to book your CFAT(If RMC applicants do this), if they say its not ready do it again in 2 weeks or so, and do that for every stage of your application. They have alot of files so if you want to keep your process moving along you need to push it a bit where you can.

Should I apply in the summer or wait until september to apply for ROTP?
« Reply #4228 on: July 02, 2017, 11:00:26 »
Hello,

I am a recently finished grade 11 Nova Scotia student well interested in the CAF. I have read a ton on this website and it has helped me very much (such as whether to go to RMC or Civie U). I've been to the recruiting office and they said to apply between September to December as the best times. I was wondering if I could start the application process now instead of having to wait until September. I have my transcripts for my grade 10 and 11 years in case I can. So far I have not found any topics on this matter on this website. Has anyone ever applied the summer before the grade 12 year? Feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'm wondering if someone could tell me what the schedule is between first and second year at RMC.  I understand we do BMOQ mod 2, but is there a "holiday" right after exams or is it straight to St. Jean?  Perhaps there is a break after BMOQ Mod 2 before we head back to RMC?  I'm trying to arrange a trip to Vimy with my family so it would help with long range planning to know when I might be able to swing it.

Cheers

For my summer of first year, I went to BMOQ Mod 2, had a week off had a 5 week SLT course, then had another week off, then in clearance at the school. If you have the appropriate French profile you get leave from the end of BMOQ to the start of the academic year. IF you fail BMOQ or you are hurt/on TCAT, you do a 9 week OJE in Kingston then leave until academic year.

To build on what JackMerridrew said, there's too many factors to accurately say when Mod 2 of BMOQ will end for you. We're not released for summer training, be it BMOQ, SLT, or any other course, OJE/OJT until mid May. We have one week of trade specific training, and then another two of "marching up and down the square" in preparation for Grad Parade / Sunset after exams. Typically they'd send you to Mod 2 directly after, or within a week or two of this period ending, however I do know others who started approximately a month later due to other circumstances. Probably, the most reliable period that we have off would be reading week in February; I'd say this is the most popular time for OUTCAN travel for us OCdts. The good news is that these dates are usually posted well in advance, you'll just have to find the academic calendar for the year.

Cheers,

Wanting to Apply to RMC and is in need of answers.
« Reply #4234 on: August 03, 2017, 19:47:44 »
Hello, I just joined the site and have been searching through it for a couple of hours now and had a few questions about joining a RMC to get a degree in aeronautical engineering and hopefully end up work in the airforce as a pilot.

1: I have asthma but haven't had an attack since I was 4, ever since I rarely like 1 time a year take a puff of my medication as a precaution, it never is that bad. So my question is how big of a problem would this be in my enrollment process. From what I see the best thing to do is to have my doctor clear me of my asthma?
2: I am allergic to animals and have hay fever, would this be a problem?
3: I currently wear contact lenses with a  prescription of -3 and -2.75, if I got laser corrective surgery would that pose a problem.
4: What do they take into account when applying for a pilot academic wise.

I know im just another person hoping to be a pilot in the air force one day but I would appreciate if anyone could answer my questions and give me any advice, thanks :D.

University Dropout wanting to get into ROTP
« Reply #4238 on: August 08, 2017, 01:20:05 »
Hello everyone,

Background history: I experienced a loss in family that led me to a big spiral, resulting in dropping in my 2nd year of uni.

I wanted to join the military and have taken a year off since dropping out, I've been working and volunteering since. I know now that i want to continue my studies and am determined more than before.

I did alright in first year but the year after was very bad, so my question is: Should i mention that I went to university and that i dropped out (even though this will hinder my ability to get into ROTP) or should I apply with only my highschool grades?

Thanks.

I would recommend full disclosure. If you don't disclose it, and they find out...it will look like you have no integrity. Don't start off your possible career by lying or hiding things from the people offering you said career...doesn't look good..at all.

Edit: Especially if you're trying to get into a position of leadership...
The military isn't really like a James Bond movie where you go for jet training in the morning and then underwater demolitions after lunch.
