    Competitive Infantry Application?

    I think the CAF would benefit from being more upfront with their applicants about this fact and others relating to the application process.  Had I known this information I would have simply resubmitted a package for DEO once I had my degree.  Being told my file will be closed seemed like a...

    Competitive Infantry Application?

    The recruiting process is a tricky one.  I applied to Infantry Officer and MARS Officer for ROTP and was told I didn't have the scores to be competitive in either.  They offered me some NCM positions but I declined and they told me my file will be closed.  I was devastated.  Years later I asked...

    Can I sign up as an infantry when I live in Toronto?

    The recruiting process takes a long time, I wouldn't worry about the travel restrictions. That being said, you should still talk to a recruiter in person when you can.  When you do, don't let them push you into a trade you don't want; it's your life.  Infantry is usually in high demand so it's...

    Medical Rejection: How to Appeal? [Merged]

    Thank you for the advice.  I have been contacting the medical staff at the recruiting office periodically for about three weeks since I recieved my denial letter.  Is it normal to not hear back from them for this long regarding my appeal process?  Also, what would you recommend I do in the...

    Medical Rejection: How to Appeal? [Merged]

    I was recently rejected for Infantry Officer because I was deemed medically unfit due to subclinical thyroiditis.  Earlier this year I received a stem cell treatment which has reversed all of my symptoms and my bloodwork is now normal.  I was not on medication before the treatment, nor after...

    Told I qual for pilot, now I don't?

    I was wondering if anyone with inside recruiting knowledge could help me.  I wrote my CFAT and did, according to the recruiter during my debrief, "extremely well" and that I "definitely qualify for pilot."  I asked to pursue that trade and was told to await an email to discuss Air Crew...

    "So You Want To Be A Pilot" Merged Thread 2002 - 2018

    I was wondering if anyone knew if there was an age requirement to become a pilot?  I am 31 and have my Private Pilot License and was wondering if there was a cut off.  I know some militaries have a window in which you can join and outside of that window you cannot. Anyone have an idea?

    Was it worth it?

    Hello all, Would any of you say that the life you gave up to join the Forces was worth it?  Did it fill that void you had in civilian life or would you rather hand in your fatigues knowing what you know now?  I ask this because I am seriously contemplating sacrificing the life I have in...
