Interview over, merit listed. However, AESop is closed and there are only a few positions for ACop left. Looks like I'm waiting till April to see what opens up.

Since when have you been merit listed? You are probably sitting higher than me because you already have your pcp. Anyway, there is still1 or 2 positions open. Maybe you will get selected!

I have been merit listed again (long story) since August. I hope we both get the call soon!

If that's the case, then start packing and getting your things in order!  Just my guess.

I couldn't agree with this more. I didn't know that I had gotten merit listed and got a call the middle of September (two weeks after my tests) asking me to start in 2 weeks. I was thrilled and then realized how much stuff I had to do before I could leave. Ultimately I had to have my start date postponed an additional 2 weeks due to a minor surgery that I needed beforehand (ingrown toenail).

Best of luck.

I'm in a big panic now over the fact that selection dates for AVS are mid November. I'm thinking that with all the processing times, my file won't be ready to go into selection. This kinda sucks... I was hoping to not have to wait until April for the next fiscal year... but what can you do?
I don't want to pester the recruitment center.... last time I called they said my file was in "Quality Control", so I'm hoping my CFAT will be soon. This application process is really a LOT of hurry up and wait...

I waited a month to see if the Supply Tech position would open up in the Army with no success. Luckily the local Air Force Unit took interest in my application, and I am working to get it transferred over to them so that the process can begin.

Thanks for all the information so far. These boards are a great resource.

Hi All,

This is my first post so go easy on me! Been reading a lot of your advice and examples. Thanks everyone for posting. It's been a huge help! Congrats to all those who are going to BMQ and for the rest of us, KCCO! If we think this is tough and frustrating, I hear BMQ is just a little bit more difficult... ;)

Been waiting about a year now and will be able to send in the advanced medical and vision test results this week. So now there is absolutely nothing I can do, accept just keep doing what I'm doing. Working out, volunteering, researching, taking courses, reading these forums... oh wait, I think I've read all of them!

Congrats Godwinlee! Have fun at basic :blotto: & fingers crossed Okanagen Guy.

So I wrote the aptitude test today. It went well. I never got told how well I did but by the sounds of things I scored well enough to be considered for ammo tech & my other positions, so I must've done pretty well!

Medical was also today, yahoo fun. There might be some issues there which could delay my entry by a few months, which sucks, but I need to bring stuff to my doctor to fill out and if that makes things better and if the medical officer who happens to look at my file in Ontario is in a good mood when he sees it, it might not be an issue. More than likely I'm looking at a few months' delay, though. If I hadn't expected it based on my history I'd be super bummed but because I was anticipating trouble it's no big deal. I'm not happy about it but I know how long the delay will be and afterwards I know it'll all be A-OK.  :nod:

So, my next step is to visit my doctor (and get something from my eye doc as well), and then hand that in and hope for the best, and plan for the wait.

*Update* Finally got the infamous "call".

Recruiting Center: CFRC Saskatoon (Now Regina, since Saskatoon closed)
Regular/Reserve: Regular
Officer/NCM: Officer
Trade Choice 1: SEELM-Physio
Trade Choice 2:
Online Application Date: Janurary 22, 2013
First Contacted: January 31, 2013
Transferred to CFRC Saskatoon: Early Febuary
Aptitude Test: March 13, 2013
Medical: March 27, 2013
Interview: March 27, 2013
Merit Listed: Mid April
Position Offered: Oct. 7, 2013
Enrollment/Swear in: TBA
BMOQ Begins: TBA

Due to the unique nature of my application (only one this year from what I understand) and the closure of my original RC, my journey has been more confusing and frustrating than I expected. There were times when I felt left in the dark, but as many have said before me, patience is a virtue. So for those applying to trades with limited intake numbers (and all other trades for that matter), be persistent and ask questions when appropriate, but know when to sit back and let things play out as they may.

There are still things to be sorted out in my case, and since I am in school full-time for another year, BMOQ is a ways away.

Cheers.
