First time posting but I figured my experience would be helpful.
I am applying for Pilot through UTPNCM for 2021. Application has been completed, interview and medical all complete and my package was sent to the boards according to my PSO. I was basically already told that my package isn't as competitive due to my CFAT scores being "average". Has anyone experienced similar sentiment from PSO's? I assumed the CFAST testing would looked at over my CFAT scores but maybe I'm wrong.
Just a background, I have 48 University credits and have applied only to the University of Manitoba. Good Luck to those that have applied, I know last year only 5 were selected for the UTPNCM route.
Thanks for sharing GSD.
I heard similarly from the PSO that my CFAT was my 'weakness' but they heard they do consider the CFAST. How much, I'm not sure. I scored 38th Percentile for Officers. I'm hoping they look at the CFAST. If they want successful Pilots during Flight Training, that would make logical sense than selecting people who scored high on the CFAT because they read a thesaurus growing up (not serious). Then again, people on the CFAST who didn't do well may complain because they didn't know how to build a house......... (anyone who hasn't done the CFAST is probably scratching their heads and anyone who has done the CFAST is probably crying)
From what they told me, my personality and interview score were both very strong. I currently have Microeconomics and Macroeconomics completed, with a final essay to complete in Business Ethics and a final exam and assignment for Principles of Marketing. I'll submit all my grades to the BPSO for them to send to Ottawa on 29 JAN 21 and then the game of waiting begins.
I applied to the Royal Military College in Kingston, ON and also to Crandall University in Moncton, NB.
