I was on the Ready for Competition List (whatever that is) just a week ago; so I must've been put on the actual Competition List sometime between then and now.

I got the call today and accepted my offer!

I want to thank everyone on this forum helping answer our silly questions. I haven't posted much other than my process times but I've research this forum inside out searching for every answer. I don't believe my application would have been as smooth without the knowledge shared on this forum.

- It's because of this forum that I did so well on my CFAT, qualifying for every trade. 
- It's because of this forum that I knew what to say during my interview.
- It's because of this forum that I had hopes for clearing my medical regardless of my past with mild anxiety that I beat a long time ago. The story in particular that inspired me was of amazing story of army.ca user named mudshuvel. Mudshuvel, you are indeed a great mentor.
- It's was this forum that kept me grounded, encouraged me to stay patient and to "Hurry up and wait"

If you really want it, you will go through every single forum thread on here regarding recruiting like I did and good things will happen.

Thank you everyone on here!

Trade Choice 3:

Application Date: November 27th, 2015
First Contact: November 30th, 2015
Aptitude Test: January 19th, 2016
I attended university in the USA so I have been waiting for an approval from the chain of command stating whether or not I will need additional screening due to living there while attending school.
I also had to obtain my Educational Assessment that proves my Masters and Bachelor degree from the USA is equivalent to the Canadian degrees.  I first paid and applied for a comprehensive report fro ICAS but that was taking forever (22 weeks from February 11th) . I had to ensure I got a full report as I was trying to get an Educational Waiver so I could apply to be a Construction Engineer with an Architecture background.
I decided to go a different route and switched my Trade Choices in late March
Trade Choice 1: Aerospace Control Operator
Trade Choice 2: Aerospace Control Officer
I figured I could try out the 3-year Non-Commissioned career first before becoming an Officer especially if my education would take a while to verify.  Then I decided to try my luck again and sent my education to be assessed by a different company that promised only 4 weeks processing (WES).  I am hoping to have that completed by the 6th of May.
ASCT: July  2017 (Did not Pass and considered alternatives) I decided on Logistics Officer at the local HMCS Reserve Unit.  Procurement is fairly close to what I do now so it should be a seamless transition career-wise.
