    I think the physical fitness grade is not simply the PRT grade. I think they also average in the PE grade. In other words, a midshipman may have achieved a B on the PRT but got a D in "boxing" ... which may average out to a C.

    It looks like our DS will end up at at 2.88. Do you think this will be rounded to 2.9 for the Commandant's List?

    Thanks!

    I am not 100% positive, but I do not think so. They used to not round up. Guessing this is his first semester at Navy from your name. 2.88 isn't bad. For most my friends and I... our grades all went up from plebe year on. But the academic load does pick up.

    NavyHoops,

    Thanks for your reply! Yes, just completed his first semester. When he was in high school he was a 4.0, but now extremely thankful to have received the 2.88. I'll be sure to tell him that your grades got better after Plebe year.

    Merry Christmas!

    Aptitude is a culmination of upperclass, company officer, and peer rankings at the end of every semester. Aptitude grades are typically company-wide, unlike order of merit which is class-wide (aptitude is factored into military order of merit, though). There's an online module where you will have to rank your companymates and underclass by identifying names with a percentile (first fifth, second fifth, third fifth, fourth fifth, last fifth).

    I forget the exact percentages, but the company officer rankings are weighted the most (like 70%+), followed by upperclass and then peer. In order to rank fairly, your CO might require a resume/brag sheet/achievement record and your squad leaders evaluation.

    Read nuensis' and usnabgo08's posts in this thread to see how grades are distributed.

    I think grades in professional courses (i.e. Seamanship) are also factored into "Aptitude".

    Not factored into the Aptitude grade directly, but ARE factored into each order of merit, Academic, Military, and Overall.

    No 'rounding', no grade 'curves'.
