    Really Cool Fitness Initiative

I'm currently a second year science student, and am considering the two year RN option at Dalhousie University next year. If so, when is the best time to apply? Also, when...

    Who Makes Stealth Jackets?

    I've been wanting to buy a stealth jacket for some time, but the size Sm is way too big for me. Does anybody know if they are made by another factory other than Peerless Garments? (I've already contacted them about this) I'm trying to find a retailer that will make me a custom size, since the...

    DEU's - Slacks?

    Hey, I need to order a new pair of dress pants, because the ones I was initially issued are huge. Even though I'm female, I think that the men's pants would fit me better than the ladies style (Due to the oversized "butt allowance" and pleats in the front). Would it be innapropriate to wear...

    Kit Question

    Hey, I just got all my kit to start BMQ later this week. I was asked to bring all of it in on Thursday night, but I'm really wondering as to whether I have to take every single item in? Common sense would lead me to believe that I could leave the small clothing items at home...

    Trades and University

    Hey, I'm in the process of getting in. I do all my testing this coming week. Anyway, I put down Medic, Infantry and SigsOp as my trade choices. I applied to the WNSR, and was told that they were only hiring infantry. But by the time I'm done my BMQ/SQ, I'll have to transfer units due to...

    Order of Tests

    I recieved a call today, with the date for my CFAT, Medical and Interview. Although, the physical test wasn't mentioned. Is it odd to do the PT test after all the other testing and interviews have been completed? I am also wondering how formal the interview is. Is it just a no-jeans sort of thing?

Hopefully I will get to do my basic starting in November, and from what I was told, it'll be alternating weekends. I'm worried about my marks in school, as this is my last year. Will it...

    Many people talk about the size of the Canadian Army... I've often wondered why there isn't much publicity attempting to encourage people to join the forces? There is some, and it has gotten better in the past couple years (television, and websites). It seems like I'm the only one in my...

    For the application, is it mandatory that we give three different choices for trades? I've put down medical, and infantry, but there's not much else that I'm interested in.
