    What are good numbers for push-ups, curl ups and the mile?

    As of now with out much training I can do 50 push-ups and 46 curl ups.

    Being that I have 7 letters for cross country and track, contributed to 3 state championships in cross country and am an all state crosscountry runner, running is my strongest of the three.

    I can regularly repeat a mile time of around 4:50.

    Are these good? What would the average be for each?

    Any advice/criticism is welcomed and appreciated!

    I recently completed my physical test, and my scores are as follows:
    5:45 mile
    56 push-ups
    64 sit-ups/ curl ups

    My numbers are some of the better ones that I've seen, and that goes for the mile too. I was a little disappointed, as I was going for around a 5:30, but on average I see many applicants around the 6:00 mark. My curl ups are the highest I've seen (I don't mean to boast, I am being honest), and my push-ups also are higher than many I've seen, so your stats are good, may want to work on the curl ups. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of academic/ leadership stats do you have? Things like GPA, ACT scores, captainship. Good luck!

    On here someplace are links to average and max numbers for the PT stuff. Can't remember where!
    What they will tell you on here is that your ACT/GPA may be a bit low DEPENDING on which schools you are listing for your scholarship. Are you taking the ACT again this fall? and also trying the SAT? You can't do much about the GPA at this point, but your leadership, sports are outstanding!
    Good luck to you!

    I also agree that the PFT is just a small % of the WCS. You want to do your best, but that ACT is where your concern should be currently.

    I don't know which branch you are applying for a scholarship, but for AFROTC anything under 24 E is considered non-competitive. IOWS they may decide not to even board you.

    Also is that your super score?

    As others have stated they are going to place your college choices so it is important to really think about that aspect.
    ~ AFROTC does not care about school choices, it is the major that matters
    ~ NROTC cares about both
