    Very Good scores.
    I got a AFROTC scholarship and my scores were just about the same.

    But then again this is just a small portion compared to the entire package. Keep up the good work, and hopr you get what you want.:biggrin:

    Do you mean the PFA that you take in AFROTC? Or the one you take when applying for a scholarship? I can't remember if they're the same. But in AFROTC, the PFA consists of 1-minute of pushups, 1-minute of situps, a 1.5 mile run and a waist measurement. Run = 50% of score, Waist = 30% and situps and pushups are each 10%.

    When applying for the scholarship. Like whats a "good score" really? They don't release very many numbers.

    Those are Air Force Academy potential mid-range scores. So for ROTC, they are QUIET good. Mine were a lot lower than that, and I received a Type 7. Remember though, you need to be 3Q'd to qualify! I would know: Right now, I'm so confused about my medical status, that I'm sending good old Mr. Mullen a very large email :)

    I took my AFROTC PFA today (after a swim practice where we did sprints and a lactate set, so they definitely weren't my best :rolleyes:)

    Pushups:66
    Sit Ups: 31
    1.5 Mile Run: 10:57

    I dont think the PT scores are a huge factor in being awarded a scholarship. Obviously, you need to demonstrate that you can pass the PFA in ROTC and contract. But any more than that, I cant see it being as big a factor as grades, test scores, extra curriculars, etc.
