I was not sure how to title this thread so I just went with the first thing that popped into my head. Took DS to school yesterday. He took his AFPT along with 9 other prospective cadets. Testing started at 6 am. I received a text from him at 7:30 that he passed and will contract as soon as he completes his 104R form. Out of the 10 cadets that took the test only 5 passed! 50% failure rate!!! I was kinda shocked by that figure to tell you the truth. For all of you prospective cadets. Once you are awarded a scholarship you have 3 things to do to reach your objective (contracting). First, maintain your grades. Second, stay out of trouble. Lastly, get in and stay in shape. Also please don't show up to your AFPT wearing a beard. Yes it happened yesterday. DS told of a cadet showing up with a beard and out of shape to boot. He was one of the cadets that failed his AFPT. After the test an O-6 (PMS?) told him to shave. Probably not the way he wanted to start his career off. Don't be that guy! If you earned a scholarship good for you but now you have a responsibility to fulfill the requirements to contract. If you are not on a scholarship put your best foot forward by showing up ready to nail the AFPT and make sure your personal appearance is within regulations. Putting forth this effort will be noticed and likely well rewarded. Best of luck to you all.
