Hi - been awhile since I've posted but been "chin deep" in my DS's school visits and AROTC / NROTC scholarship app's. Question....we seem to be getting conflicting information from multiple sources so here it goes. My DS has solid GPA/SAT's but not to the level that he's a slam-dunk. He also has very strong leadership experience for multiple years (Sea Cadets, class officer, team captain - wrestling, volunteerism, etc). On that note - he was taking the PFT for his NROTC scholarship and was given a form to have his school official administer the test (Strength Coach @ his HS). In all of my DS's prior PFT's at his Sea Cadet unit, he hit Presidential Fitness levels and I expected him to score well on this test given his prior scores, 8 years a wrestler, track and field, etc. He did well and scored a 289 out of 300. However, after reviewing the form that was used I noted that the only category he was "light" on were push-ups (surprising). I also noted that he finished the PFT 10 minutes earlier than the allotted time which meant less recovery time. Long story short, it appears my "gung ho" DS powered through the PFT as fast as possible and the faculty member administering the test didn't read the form with time allowances. So my question is...is it better to use the time to score a bit higher (although I suspect a 289 is good) and re-take the PFT, or just submit it with a few less push-ups but a much shorter test period? Sorry...this may be obvious but we're new to this process. Appreciate any guidance as I really want my DS to demonstrate his physical "readiness" especially since his other scores could use a boost. Thank you.
