    Canadian Forces Aptitude Test (CFAT) [MERGED]

    He meant minimal offence, he was just making a joke at your expense. If you do succeed in your pursuit of a career with the CF it would be a great benefit to learn how to take things with a grain of salt.

    Stay in cadets, then RMC or go reserves and then RMC

    You will have different hoops to jump through if you go reserves, than apply to ROTP. My CT got a little mangled in the process and I missed out on ROTP. That being said,  joining the reserves,  even for a couple of years will put you ahead of the game, compared to staying in cadets.

    Is it Worth it?

    Nobody can really tell you what is best for you, the reserves are a great way to test the waters to see if you enjoy army life.

    New Rucksack

    I didn't mind bending them I am just curious on how long they stay bent and not deform on long marches. I might be a bigger fan of the ruck if they hadn't issued me an XL bag with XS shoulder straps and XS waste buckle
