    My Experience in the Selection of the French Foreign Legion

    At the beginning of Feb I left a message here saying that I would hit the gate of the Foreign Legion in Aubagne.

    My selection is over and I didn't make it. I'm now back to my country safely and recollect myself the things happened in Aubagne.

    Before I joined, I said I would post my experience of the selection here for others' reference in the future. I honor my words and have started to write. I intent to put down my experience into different sections and post them in various threads. I will edit this post from time to time and update the links to each section. (If Forum Admin has a better idea/way to do it please tell me so)

    Your experience in the selection could be different from mine but these are my personal account. Things could be changed there, but at least this post could give you some idea on what is going to happen in the weeks of selection.

    Enjoy reading and good luck!

    He doesn't have to. He went and showed more balls than 90 per cent of the wannabes on here.

    Unlucky ransac, at least you went for it. Could someone give me the name of a thread or a link to find information about the general content of the psycotechnical tests. Cheers.

    Was the British première classe from 2rep there? He loved to see me every day during rouge. Wanted me specifically to go "civil" every day but I never really understood this word "civil".

    unquestionably.


    Now Ransac, if you don't mind to do it brother, could you tell us on what stage were you refused?

    For my understanding of what you told us, it was after the Commission, is that correct?

    "Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P"
