Helloo!

My first post.

I am being fast-tracked through the process with Peel. Basically did my interview, BGI, psych test, and psych interview within a span of 2 days. My next step is a pre-board physical and then the board interview. Everything is going well, if I pass the PREP again I think I should have a good chance .

I just applied to to Toronto on Monday. Received a phone call today to go in for an interview.

I am very interested in both TPS and PRP. Since I am so deep in the process with PRP, any advice regarding how I should proceed with TPS?

Worst case scenario I screw up on my pre-board physical with Peel, hoping that won't happen. But will moving ahead with Toronto, jeopardize my chances with PRP in any way? Any experience with this scenario? How about the possibility of receiving offers from more than one PF?

Just looking for some advice/ experience. Thanks.

What you've got there is a nice problem to have! I envy that timeline.

I have no definitive advice on how to proceed because I haven't been there before, but I think the morale of reading these boards is until you've signed with someone, don't consider yourself hired, so you should probably attend that interview with TO. I"m not sure how or if you'd explain this to Peel. I'm sure they would understand you're just covering bases.

To me it sounds like Peel is going to wrap this up very quick, so you need to be ready to say yes/no, and I don't know how long a service keeps an offer on table. Given their accelerated rate here, they may expect reciprocity from you.

Keep us updated!

Up to me, you should keep it up on both sides until you're definitely in on one of them. At least, that's what I would do in your situation.
