We don't keep such statistics on the board, so it'll be difficult to answer that question. The last one that we know about is a member known as Guido Lovarini, from Scotland (notwithstanding the Italian name).Hey
Just curious as to how many people have posted an introduction on here and actually gone on to serve?
Well... We've actually had on the forum a number of testimonies from candidates who failed selection. Unfortunately, for those who passed all the tests and were not selected during the final Selection Committee meeting, they generally don't know the exact reason for their rejection, as the Legion doesn't provide details.Surfguy about sums it up. For those that have been rejected, it's a shame that they don't share their experiences with the others. There is no shame about being rejected or even if you decide that the Legion isn't for you and ask to leave.
This can be explained by a number of factors.Funny though that they reject people but might take them on another attempt. Even on a third attempt. Others get don't come back ever.
Yeah ok but if the candidates are higher quality one time & a candidate gets rejected but passes in another attempt then they lower the standards to suit the candidates present. Pot luck really when you go.This can be explained by a number of factors.
• For those who received an inapte temporaire discharge, it's pretty obvious. If they fixed the problem that originally disqualified them (fitness, rectifiable health problem, etc.) they can be accepted on another try.
• Then of course the “supply and demand” factor.
• Finally, the ”competition” factor. If a candidate passed all the tests and was rejected at the Commission de Sélection (Selection Committee) because they had to make a choice between, say, 50 candidates for only 30 slots available, he may have more luck in a new try. In this case however it means that he would be given a new chance inspite of receiving and inapte définitif discharge.
Think yourself lucky you got hair...haha . i have but thinned out so I Shave it with an Electric Razor. Yeah the guy in the video was a bit to full of himself. Talks too much too.Sexpert, I think that the problem with the Francophones in general to begin with, are under the impression that they are being interviewed to go on their corporal's course. This can be because in the beginning and practically up until the end end of instruction, all the Non-francophones look to these French speakers to find out what is going on.
However in the 13 minutes (same guy?) it brought a smile to my face. I'd started a thread entitled legion expressions, or something more or less like that. I'd given a couple of legion expressions and added 'like a pink floyd'. Which is a true legion expression. However, there was a green who gave his legion time and said that he had never heard the the expression.
Erika even mentions to me nowadays that my hair is (long) like a pink floyd.
