So tell me - Does it hurt to apply to several forces at the same time (figured I'd ask since noticing your "signature")

Thanks

No - If you are mindfull of the interview and BGI, waybe one service moves faster
in the process? Eggs in one basket, or spread around your chances?

I got my letter last friday to inform me i received "favourable consideration" at final review and was placed on the eligibility list for employment. Hopefully going in Jan 08.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

Well, I was passed over this past class. I got a call a week before the intake and was informed that it was full. They told me that if I keep everything up to date between now and Jan '08 then I should have a "good chance" of making it this coming class ... Frustrating and disappointing ... but more b/c I had to go back to my current job.

Congrats meathead on being favorable!

I am waiting to see if I passed psych and going on to BGI. I assume that is what happens. So far so good. Patience is surely a virtue!

LFI today...I think it went O.K. but you never know...when you guys had yours did they have a big stack of paper that they wrote on? My interviewer did and after about two thirds of the paper the interview was over. I hope that the rest was for her to fill out later after going through the other information that i took for her. :banghead:

The waiting game is painfull

Playing the waiting game is definitely a long distance race, hurry up and wait!
I got the call from OPP they received my application, and a letter from Guelph, that "I'm on file"
for now. Maybe I'm have an interview by November?
Good luck on your interview Gotjits

Hey Gojits, I remember in the interview alot of papers he was writing on. Sorry I did not notice a pile and him going through it specificaly. Good luck, let us know.

I received a package for the BGI today, I guess it means I passed Psych/Personality test. I have to do all medicals, finger prints etc... and of course WAIT for a call from a Constable for the BGI. Anybody know the approx waiting time? I am hoping that my good rythm continues on.

Good luck mystrwolf to get a LFI.

Thanks guys!

I got my rejection letter today...it's so informal. It wouldn't hurt for them to give you an idea of where you went wrong. On to regional>
