First off, I will need a waiver to get into the program for prior service in the Air Force. The ROTC recruiter I spoke with said if I did well on my PT test to send in the waiver I would get accepted in. The PT results will go along with my 3.5 GPA in college so far. My questions are: A: I've been training 2 weeks and can now run about 1.4 miles at a good pace; how should I use the remaining 5 and a half weeks to train for the 2 mile run? Right now I am doing interval running and biking on rest days so I don't get shin splints. I will be able to get a 100 on Pushups and Situps so I am not worried about that. B: What are some good ideas to mention in my waiver? I know I will mention how the Army will be a better fit for me than the Air Force and that I would like to serve my country. I was sitting behind a computer in the Air Force and was miserable. (College degree is for Criminology) What are some other good key points to mention to ensure that my waiver gets accepted? I'm also going to include how I will do the SMP program to prove how committed I am to becoming an Army Officer. Thanks! I'm not trying to have someone write this for me, I'm simply looking for guidance and advice.
