    I came across an interesting product called Dyneema. It is less weight than steel inserts and capable of stoping AK47 rounds. http://dyneemamatters.com/inserts?category_id=36

    ROTP 2011-2012

    I am a CT also and I am course loaded for my QL3 in early May. From what I've read, I may not get a letter until I am already on course. Have any previous ROTP applicants on this forum been in a similar situation? If so, what happens when I accept the offer (assuming I am selected) if I am...

    I am attending Memorial also, however I was already told that if I get accepted I will be staying at MUN. Which trade(s) did you apply for?

    ROTP 2011-2012

    I agree with X2012, I was given a document for my optometrist to fill out after I completed my medical in 09. Hopefully I do not need to make another trip after my next medical because I got iLasik done yesterday!  ;D

    http://www.thetelegram.com/News/Local/2010-09-18/article-1772957/Pleasantville-marches-on/1 The article contains some unrelated environmental info but I linked it to show what will be replacing the current buildings for those of you interested.

    ROTP 2011-2012

    I started coaching a hockey team in September and that has been a great experience for me. If you're interested in hockey that is perhaps something you may want to look into for leadership experience.

    ROTP 2011-2012

    As far as I know you need to show ALL academic transcripts (university, college, highschool, etc). You must also have a minimum of three semesters left in your undergraduate program to be eligible for ROTP. While your grades are obviously a factor in your suitability for the program, it is not...

    ROTP 2011-2012

    I put my request for a CT in last Thursday. I was told today to just wait until I  receive an email from Ottawa, which they said may take 6-8 weeks. Gives me plenty of time to work on my essay at least!

You...
