Probably would of been in 2 years ago if it wasn't for vision categories (V4). But thanks to Lasik, now a V1, and hopefully get a call soon. Gotta love the waiting game haha

So, I went to the recruiting center on the 25 May to get an update on my file...Turns out the trade (combat engineer) has closed for this fiscal year and with me unfortunately only putting down the 1 trade my file has been closed. Looks like its time to play the waiting game again and reapply next year. Patience is a virtue while doing the application process and ya just have to wait it out! I mean with me, the recruiter said my application was ranked very well, and I scored great on the aptitude test. Was in bookings just waiting for the medical and the interview. But what can you do, theres only so many positions open for the year and once there gone there gone.

Just got off the phone with the recruiter and then with the medical staff...my file is making slow progress.  The medical has yet to be approved, but was sent 27 May 2011 to Ottawa for the final sign-off.  A knee injury I had last year as well as the fact I wear custom orthotic inserts has been the cause of this delay.  The medical staff indicated this could take from 4-6 weeks for final approval depending on backlog, so here's hoping things in Ottawa are running smoothly, or things may be closed before my file is approved.

Nothing to do but wait, hope, and keep up with the training!

Med, aptitude completed : Aptitude test-Feb.2008/ Medical test-May.2008
PT Test completed: Waiting
Interview completed: Waiting
Position Offered: Waiting
Basic Training Begins: Waiting

I did have an interview in May of 2008, but during the interview I was told that I had some licensing issues and debt that I need to take care of. I had gotten everything taken care of by spring of last year, with some other conversations and some misunderstandings in between. So I reapplied Apr.1st, 2011 only to have my file transferred two weeks after (which took two weeks) and have been waiting for my application to be processed (since Apr.14th) so that I can redo my med. test and my interviews. Unfortunately, while waiting, 2 of my 3 choices (CE & Armored) have closed and I fear that the 3rd (Infantry) will be soon to follow, thus, leaving me to wait yet another year.

*sigh*
Not going to lie, feeling a bit discouraged...but not defeated.

The recruiting centre called today and told me all 3 of my chosen trades are closed and canceled my medical. Still allowed to write the CFAT (which I will). Recruiter said basically nothing until April 2012. I think I'm throwing in the towel. Finished.

Maybe it's time for me to join the reserves ( I should of joined when the local regiment called in December), find a job related to my schooling and go with that. Hell, maybe in the next 2 years a CT to reg. force will be quick and simple.

It is a good option that lets you have the best of both worlds. Good luck.

That's weird. I'm at CRFC Kitchener as well. I applied for infantry end of march 2011 and was merit listed end of may. I haven't received a call saying that infantry was closed. I was told by my file manager there are still approx 15 positions per regiment and the next selection board for those merit listed is on June 15. I was told this when i visited CRFC Kitchener yesterday.

Ya that makes sense. I never thought about the cost to process an applicant. I suppose once you pay an applicant according to their commute to the RC, pay to mail medical info and file to selection board and medical officers, and pay the recruiters for time spent it isn't cheap.
