    Nope.
    AROTC required you to take part of the Presidental Fitness test. Sit ups, pushups and a run. similar but not exactly the APFT.

    I can't remember exactly - but I think the test is 1 min pushups, 1 min situps and a 1 mile run.
    Many times as a part of the interview you will be given the APFT as well - this is not officially a part of the application - unless they have changed it this year.

    I have applied for an AROTC scholarship this year and I took my PFT seperate from my interview and it is a requirement this year. Also, when I took it, the instructor gave me a choice of pull ups or push ups because they use the Presidential Fitness Test format, where you can choose either/or

    I was never given the APFT at my interview/nor did I take the Presidents fitness challenge but it might be good to take it any way because that is what you will need to pass in order to contract.

    APFT Standards:
    Push-up- 42 in 2min
    sit-ups-53 in 2min
    2mile run in 15:53 or better

    Also BMI must be 20 %or under if over height weight standards.
