    My current APFT score is lower than I thought a little above 200 (cant remember exact but I know it didn't break 210) I under stand that is awful (for my own standards) and I am working on it, but will it hurt my chances of a slot for LTC? Also I think I should point out that LTC isn't for a few months so I WILL increase my score to no less than 275 (my bare minimum) before I head off. I just want to know if me being unprepared for the initial PFT test will hurt my chances of even getting to LCT to prove myself.

    Thank You in advanced

    Well without knowing your situation (grade etc), to start with LTC is no more. It is now CIET. You must score a minimum of 60 in each event of the apft to pass. If you are competing for slots at your school then I would say yes you will probably need to improve quite a bit to earn a slot. A little more information on your situation could probably get you a little more advice.

    LTC isn't something that is competed for. If you want to go to it and meet the requirements then you are able to go. Now, if you want to be able to contract when you get back from LTC then you need to do well, and achieve good marks while you're down there. When you get there you will take a PT test that is proctored by Drill Sergeants, so you need to have good form. Get those PT test scores as high as possible and learn as much as you can.

    Not sure I follow this, LTC, which has been changed to CIET, has limited slots, even meeting the requirements require that there are slots left to fill. That in itself makes it competitive.
