    DS just told me he scored 337 on his Army PT test. I am just wondering how that compares to others. DS is a solid kid, 5-9 190 lbs, told me his is trying to lose some weight, but he is a wrestler, stays active, and just does not have all that much body fat. DS is currently a soph and has a 3.9 gpa and actually got all A's last semester. He is a CJ major at UNG. We are hoping he can contract soon and he is getting the info on how to go about that. He will have earned 55 credits after completing this spring semester. He loves UNG and was just made a cadet squad leader and is a member of the UNG Cadet Chaplain Corp. DS is also in Natl Guard and told me he is going to find out about SMP program as it is something he is interested in. Any comments and advice is welcome.

    Well seeing as how the max for the APFT is 300, a 337 is an awesome score. That will be a factor in his contracting. Last semester in our ROTC program, the 2 people that won campus based scholarships scored 295+, so the cadre will definitely notice your DS's fitness level.

    Also, that gpa is a big factor, so make sure he knows to keep that up.

    He looks very competitive; 300+ APFT score & 3.9GPA - very very impressive.

    I'm not sure what you're DS's status is with the NG, but if he did not already go to BCT and/or AIT and does not get awarded a scholarship by semester's end, he might want to consider going to CLT this summer. I heard that you have a better chance of picking up a scholarship there than on-campus.

    As a matter of fact...

    DS has completed both Basic and AIT at Ft. Benning. I did not know he could still compete for a scholarship once he was in the NG.

    He can as long as he isn't contracted. Once they are contracted there is no incentive to offer them a scholarship, since they have already committed to serve. If he is a member of the Guard or Reserves he can receive a scholarship offer, but he will have to be released from his unit to accept that offer, unless he is offered a GRFD scholarship, in which case he will not be allowed to go active duty when he graduates.
