Hi guys! I'm a female, non scholarship cadet, entering into my freshman year at Rhodes College. I am working on the APFT with my JROTC Army Instructor (AI), so I am making sure my pushups and situps are up to standard with him. For my first APFT I am shooting for anywhere in the 220 range (if higher, great!) but this is my minimum standard I am setting for myself in order to never worry about skirting between passing and failing. How can I make myself stand out to get contracted and/or to receive a scholarship as soon as possible? I would like to be able to take advantage of summer training and other opportunities I would not be able to get without a contract. How do I prepare for rucks? I want to hit the ground running and look for any advice or criticisms that can help me. Thanks!
