    DS got letter from admissions today asking for height/weight as well as waist and neck measurements. He is 5'7'' 175lbs with a very athletic build. Why are they asking now?? Wouldn't this have been part of the DodMERB checks?? His school will measure and send in paperwork ASAP, but just wondered what this is all about..

    PFA (physical fitness assessment) standards are separate from medical. The PFA consists of the BCA (body composition assessment ie Height/Weight) and the PRT (physical readiness test 1.5mi run, 2min situps, 2 min pushups)

    My DS received the same letter and my initial reaction...what in the world would they send this now. He took the form to school and had the certified athletic trainer complete the form. We sent back in to USNA. We received a response letter back very quickly...he was fine. My son is in the same boat, 6'3 and 250lbs...big and athletic.
