    What do cadets do their first week? Is PT really hard the first week (like the 6 mile run)?

    Im going to guess that PT difficulty depends on what service's ROTC youre doing and what det it is.

    First week, we just got uniforms, books for class and sort of an overview of what to expect. Its not like youre going to get hazed or anything.

    Hazed? No. "Initiated?" Probably still no :rolleyes:

    From what I've heard about AFROTC, what Nick said sounds about right (I start in August though, so all I can really give you is "I heard..." Sorry).

    some units/batallions/detachments have a weekend field training before school starts or after the first week. But you mostly get uniforms, meet with a counselor for academics, get paperwork in order and take the PT test.
