I have a 3 year AROTC scholarship and was just wondering if I need to reach 20% body fat by the time I get to school or when the scholarship begins the following fall? Right now Im at 18% but the tape test is inaccurate and according to it depending on the day I could go over 20%

My DS earned a campus based 3 Year, which was extended a half year earlier, by meeting all the standards, including college GPA, DoDMERB and nailing the APFT.

You will NOT get "tossed" by showing up to school with out of spec body fat. You WILL jeopardize the start date (scholarship disbursement) of the contract by not meeting all requirements by the end of the MS-I year.
