I also feel it is an unhealthy habit I have formed checking my e-mails so frequently, although looking forward to the weather clearing up here a bit so I can get outside running again without the worry of breaking a leg in the snow.

I told a friend that I get a little flutter every time my phone indicates I have an email. She emailed me to laugh.

But I'm hoping to get outside next week and get my running back up to par. I've been on the treadmill, but I find it hard to get a good pace going.

I've been waiting for medical to contact me since November and it's most certainly been the longest wait of my application. I'm filling up my time by attending the RPN program at Algonquin College. How about you guys?

got the call for Troop 1 - starts beginning of April. Keep in there ... I got the call for medical and it all came together pretty quickly from there once it got rolling.

Guys, I'm from Ottawa as well. I waited 6 months for my medicals and shortly after was deferred for 2 years for the second time, looking back at it now I would have never seen the greater things in my life waiting for me, if it happens it happens if it doesn't happen then pick yourself up and move forward but rest assured you'll get there when everything lines up for you accordingly.

Just hang in there, everything that is right for you takes time.

How long after medical gets started does it usually take to receive the call about what troop you're in?

Congrats man! That's huge! How long from when you completed your MEDICAL to getting your troop call did you wait?

I had my psych on a Monday (it got moved up 2 weeks from the original scheduled date) and then saw the doc the following Monday. They said they rushed me in because the doc was leaving for 2 weeks and they wanted to get me in. After seeing the doc it was a couple days to get the offer.

Seems like it is different for everyone but the lady at the doc's office said they had gotten through the backlog and were starting to process a lot of applicants so I'm sure you guys/gals will hear soon!

That's awesome.
My PSYCH is still scheduled for Monday, so, maybe with some luck I'll hear by the end of the month?! :D

Anywhere, I went to the one at Campus (UOttawa) and it was so quick and easy, they already knew what to do regarding the costs and such.
