From what I expect, and this could be wrong. They won't call with your results from the psych unless the security comes back good. again, I'm just hypothesizing, so don't take my word for gospel haha.

Awesome news!! Congrats! My recruiter sent me an email today saying he wanted to get my medical forms ready for that stage, but I haven't specifically been told if I passed or failed the psych, I'm taking it as good news that they're moving forward with the forms!

I applied to this in 2018 and never did the testing or interview. I was discouraged by people saying even though I applied for Burlington ONT I would never get it. Has this changed?

Someone in my troop went to Burlington. It's definitely worth pursuing. Won't hurt and you could always turn down an offer if it's somewhere else.

Just curious is the GT-04 the highest rate at this time one can hit?

I applied last year and was discouraged not to get in. I have an environmental studies degree as well as various amounts of experience. However I’m only 25. Could that be the reason? Also will they be hiring this time of year again?

Just discouraged that I didn’t get in. I’m very passionate about this field and want to get into it.

Try again. Your age is fine. People get hired younger than 25.
