    75 to be competitive, you can study for it and get a better score. Did you look at any books before you took it or was this a shot in the dark? Either way there is always room for improvement.

    A 70 is a great score. You still have some hurdles to overcome.. the physical, other applicants, but if you set yourself apart from the rest you should be competitive.

    I made a 239 on the Army APFT. would that high of a score make me more competitive?

    I have no idea what the Army APFT is, or why it's important.

    The Army APFT is the armys version of scoring their fitness level based on points I believe. Like do a 2 mile run under X amount of minutes and you get X amount of points. Since you are applying to the Coast Guards and not the army, the information you gave us about your apft score will have no effect on your process. If you can do the Tier 1 Fitness for Coast Guard than it should be easy sailing for you when you have to take the fitness test at boot.

    Thanks KChan.. you learn something new everyday.. It wouldn't hurt to bring it to the attention of your recruiter.
