A few weeks ago, I recieved a letter from the cadre at the University I will be attending on an Army ROTC 4-year scholarship this Fall. In the letter, it said we would be taking the APFT on a certain day in August, and that you must be able to pass each portion with a certain number of reps and time for each. The letter said you must be able to complete 35 push-ups, 42 sit-ups, and the 2-mile in 16:30 or less. I sit here a little baffled with this, because from what I understood you are required to pass the APFT with 60 points in each event or more, equivalent to a 15:54 2-mile or less, 47 push-ups, and 52 sit-ups. Can anybody provide some insight as to why my letter from the University gives those lower (and higher for the 2-mile) numbers?
