    CFA Mile time?

    It’s a passing time but you definitely want to be faster than that. Because if you get in West Point or happen to go ROTC, you’ll have to do the APFT/ACFT and that’s a 2 mile run. And best recommended for eating before CFA would be a light breakfast that has mainly carbs (oatmeal, granola bar...

    You’re fine man. Now all you gotta do is be mentally prepared and get/stay in physical shape! Prepare by doing pushups, sit-ups, pull-ups and ESPECIALLY running a lot!

    Initial thoughts on the first Army ROTC Scholarship board results

    I actually had a 26 ACT and a 3.6 GPA in high school but I still got a 4 yr scholarship last year. Even though my ACT was a bit ehhh, the interview is super important

    Oh yes! For sure. It’s definitely a way to have a head start in physical fitness and tactical knowledge.

    MS1 here! Ask any questions you may have about ROTC

    It’s pretty simple. The interview is a time for YOU or the candidate to shine. Make sure you are able to relate your leadership achievements to the military. And be honest and don’t be too nervous during the interview. The PMS is also a human being. Oh yeah, and be prepared to answer specific...

    Cadets are held accountable to the APFT as of now. So far only Ranger Challenge has taken the ACFT. The rest of the battalion will take it later.

    MS1 here! Ask any questions you may have about ROTC

    I’m in Army ROTC but usually for a scholarship, they look for a well-rounded person. Someone with good leadership skills, involved in ECs, good GPA, good PT score, and etc. Usually you also have to interview with the PMS or head of the program too. I applied for the scholarship during the summer...

    MS1 here! Ask any questions you may have about ROTC

    Yes. The key is to consistently workout in the summer and to eat healthy! Out of the 4 year scholarship winners, I was 2 out of 5 that passed the PT test. The reason for those that didn’t pass? It was because they stopped working out in the summer! Cadets need to put more emphasis on the PFT...

    Bad PFA Scores

    It’s a solid score. But there’s always room for improvement! I would try to get pushups to 40 though

    Future pleb! I have some questions

    I bet you can’t even do 10 pushups.

    Smoked three times used an edible once last summer are my chances ruined?

    Not even once, but 3 incidents with marijuana! Wow. Well, only thing I can say is to be honest and NEVER do it again! Things like this won’t get you far in the service!
