    I know the maximums and averages on the CFA. Son has done a search and cant find the same info for the Physical Fitness Assessment. Does anyone have that?

    For the AROTC application, it's my understanding that there aren't maximums, per se. They are looking for the applicant's time on a 1 mile run, the number of curl-ups (not sit-ups) in 1 minute, and the number of push-ups in 1 minute.

    I'm not aware of any published averages. What I've done in the past, though, is gone back through this forum around the dates the scholarship awards were announced and looked at the stats that scholarship winners have posted. It kinda helped me know what DS needs to shoot for.

    I hope this helps!

    I talked with my interviewing officer about this - and I wrote it down. Will have to search for it when I get back to my dorm.

    That would be wonderful if you could do that! We're in the same situation as Vista123, and it would be nice if there were published information.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm ... unfortunately I don't think I have that specific sheet with me (must be back home).

    Unfortunately I do not quite remember the numbers, so don't quote me on this. So, based upon my PFA and my foggy memory:
    PU: 50'ish
    SU: 40'ish
    1mi: < 8 min

    I think the numbers may be around this for a competitive chance, but don't look at this as official information.

    Clarkson or Marist would probably have the numbers.

    If AROTC is like AFROTC, they will use the will use the same score chart that's used for active duty members. Just google Army APFT score chart (or AF PFA score chart if your AFROTC) to get the max and minimums. Generally, the maximums when applying for the scholarship are a bit lower than the ones you go by in ROTC (Ex: female push-up max for applying for an AFROTC scholarship was 42 in a min, but max while in AFROTC and big AF is 47 in a min).

    So if your DS shoots for big ARMY maximums, then he'll either meet or exceed AROTC standards.

    This link doesn't have the best format, but it has the info you were looking for. Male maximums: 71-pushups, 78-situps (each in 2 min), 13:00min- 2 mile run

    I do not think that CC models the PFA after the PFT.

    PFA is timed for 1 minute; PFT is timed for 2 minutes.

    @Future2LtMom - You're welcome!

    It's not the same test as the APFT. See here: http://goldenknightbattalion.wordpress.com/2011/09/03/pft-or-prt-that-is-the-question/
