A deferral can happen at any point! Chances are less the further in the process you go.

Thanks Loadie for the verbal yoga. It helps :)......Vees19, you seem to be flying through the process. My background took over a month to complete but you nver know yours could be faster. Good luck with everything.

Any rough estimate as to when RTC 138 and 139 are scheduled to be? Thanks in advance!

Did you look on the recruiting website? If it's not there then the answer is no, sorry.

I was an out of province applicant so i was lucky enough to get it all done in one week. Been waiting in the limbo though this last week for all of my psych and medical results to come back to my recruiter. Not to worried about it though because i think its impossible for me to get into RTC 137.

I talked to my recruiter the other day and he said that they were cutting off the invites for RTC 137 on Monday May 16th as that class has now been moved up a week to May 30th.

Hello everyone!

I had my week of testing in March. I'm currently waiting on my medical and psych reports to come back.

Has anyone had to wait on the psych report? I had to clear something up for the medical but I'm surprised the psych is taking so long. I think I had a doctor who doesn't normally do the assessments so maybe she was covering for the regular doctor while she was on vacation or something.

Looks like this issue has precluded me from the summer class but let's hope for the fall one!

Good luck!

Honestly, any late stage of the process can take a while. I was lucky when I went through, the only long waits periods were due to scheduling. talking to my classmates and squad mates it seems like you can wait at any stage, for no particular reason. I wouldn't sweat it, if they want you you'll get hired.

Yeah, it is what it is. I'm still happy I got through everything in one week.

I've heard they do pre hires, so that might be something to consider

Yes, depending on situations we do have pre hires!

What's the longest amount of time spent as a pre-hire that you've seen? - If 138 starts in Sept. is early August plausible for pre-hire?

I have sometimes seen pre hires for months. They might not waste time hiring somebody in august if class starts in Sept. But I am not in recruiting and don't know the specifics of the prehire program.
