    Nice numbers although I think you're ending in the right spot number wise, give or take 250 numbers, I think the earlier numbers will be just a bit lower. But yea that's about how it will go. I hope

    I'm low 1400s and I feel like if I make it in July's class I'd be one of the last numbers called. I spoke with my investigator a little over a week ago and when I asked if he needed anything for my file he told me he hasn't been able to review it yet. I know it's only about to be April but that lack of urgency at this point has my optimism dwindling rapidly. Plus all this talk about residency being rejected has me a little worried because my third proof is a list of out of the box documents that he said should be more than enough but has yet to be reviewed and had the final sign off. God willing all this stressing will be for nothing and I'll be going through the bitter sweet sufferings of a July academy.

    Yea I like the numbers but the only thing I would say is you gotta factor in se recycles in every class so rather than 315, maybe use 300.

    True... I thought I was since the classes are usually closer to 330.. But yeah, maybe 300 is a better number to use...

    Quick question, on the written exam is 100 the highest score you can get without any extra points (residency, legacy etc..)? If 100 is the highest you can get without extra points i assume that means you can get no questions wrong to receive a 100?

    It depends on what questions you got wrong and how much that question cost, I don't think any of the questions were worth a full point and who knows how much those partial credit ones were worth. Depending on which ones you got wrong or partial credit for you might of been able to get a couple wrong. And they rounded the grades up or down so as long as you were above 99.5 you got a 100.

    Had my oral psych evaluation today, I think everything went well. I was literally in there for 5 minutes. So either she deemed me nuts as soon as I walked in or saw I was sane within 5 minutes lol.

    General questions or did she ask about a specific event in your past?

    Default Fitness award

    For any of the guys who have been through or are in the academy, I was wondering what winning the fitness award consisted of specifically. I understand some basics like push-ups, pull-ups, and running all factor in but is it some average of where you place in all events? Is FST time involved somehow?

    I'm not thinking I have much of a shot at winning this thing but it would be nice to have some concrete numbers to look up to while training.

    At the beginning of the academy you have to do pushups, pull ups, sit ups, and the 1.5 mile run. If you do not meet certain minimums (which have been stated multiple times in the past) you go into remedial. At the end of the academy you do the same test again. Whoever does the best overall wins it. I think they try and also make "most improvement" a component of the score.

    The guy that won in my class did the most pushups, pull ups, and sit ups, and came in 2nd in the 1.5m run.
