PMQ's while studying at RMC Kingston
« on: November 05, 2012, 16:03:36 »
I've tried checking previous post , forces.ca , rmc.ca and i can't seem to find the answer.  My question is pretty simple , I'm applying on the ROTP program this weekend ( finger crossed ) and hopefully I'll be taken.  I know that if everything works out , i have to spend 2 years at st-jean-sur-le-richelieu , prep year then 1st university year.  After ST-Jean i have to go do my bachelor degree at Kingston.  I know there is NO PMQ'S at st-jean , but what about Kingston ? , I'm 24 years old and I'm looking forward to having kids , and i was wondering if my girlfriend could have PMQ's in kingston if she got pregnant then , i mean i know it's only 5 years total of studies , but 30 years old seems kinda old for the 1st kid , and i don't want my girlfriend to raise my children alone and me not being able to see them ( only being there on the weekends when nothing is set ). 

If anyone has the answer , i would gladly appreciate , i tried the Contact Us section on RMC.ca , but i didn't know if i should send this question to the rector itself , or someone else , i tried the FAQ section of RMC.ca also , still no luck , thanks a lot !

we've been living under the same roof for 6 months now , same address and everything , that way we could get the common-law next summer ( under the CF ) because the civil common-law is 3 years

There are PMQs (RHUs) at CFB Kingston right next to RMC.

There is no guarantee you will be granted authorization to live off-campus during your time at RMC.  As I've posted in another thread, those cadets who are living off-campus right now are the exception to the rule and are largely grand-fathered from when a live-off program existed (as recently as last year).  These days, the blanket policy is that all cadets will live at RMC, and anything else is the exception to the rule.

That being said, these things obviously change so the information I just presented to you is accurate as of now.  Who knows what the rules will be next year.

Good luck, and make sure you do your homework about family accommodation before committing to a course of action.

yeah well my girlfriend and i spoke a lot before i decided to apply for RMC , she knew there was a possibility of me having to live in the RMC Dorms for the entire time , she also knew that i might not be able to help with the living cost if she followed me , but she doesn't care she doesn't want me to hold back on my dream for her , it was more about what happens if she gets pregnant during the time I'm there ... , but I'll try to Google search more , and send an email to the rector , hopefully he'll be able to fill me in with the exceptions , probably gonna go to kingston in the next month to see what the school looks like.

thanks for your answer !

it was more about what happens if she gets pregnant during the time I'm there ...

You know, there's ways of preventing that.....  Just sayin'.....   :whistle:

I imagine that if it is Issue, then you should have no problems.  The military is all about uniformity.  Ensure that you thoroughly inspect it when issued.  You won't want to get home and find it defective and that Stores is closed for a few days for a weekend or stocktaking, not permitting you to exchange it for a new one.  Remember this: "One man; one kit" and the responsibilities there entailed.

Do you have to write an essay as part of your ROTP application?

to be honest , we haven't really spoke about an essay , i know there is an interview , there is the aptitude test , there is also the medical test , but as far as i know the sergeant recruiter here in Quebec didn't speak about any kind of essay whatsoever !

Absolutely.

Judging by the OP's hometown (Quebec City) and the nature of his writing, I would guess his first language is French and that is the language he will write his essay in.

Not sure if you, or others, were about to inform him of his writing deficiencies, but I just figured I'd preemptively provide relevant info.
