    Everything looks great, but those PFT scores are on the lower end of the spectrum.

    @T_Bordeau13 her push-ups are one shy of maxing. I wouldn't call that low by any means. The sit-ups are also solid, but the run could be faster.

    Overall, you look competitive. A lot depends on which schools you are applying to.

    For schools my choices are: TCU, UT Arlington, and Penn State. If it makes a difference my chosen major is Nursing.

    My daughter is an Army nurse and also did AROTC. The numbers and needs of the Army change every year but I think your numbers are SOLID. You probably won't go in this first board though so don't be discouraged. Keep in mind if you didn't already know that *most* nursing schools don't guarantee you an automatic advance into upper division classes so do your homework.

    No one here really knows as we are not on the admissions board. Your application is complete and boarded. You can no longer really control the process but must essentially await news. Fretting about it is really a waste of time. Let it go and focus on the things you can control, especially plans B, C, and D.
