    There's a PT test during recruitment? What are the requirements?

    Also, congrats! Wish I were in your shoes right now.

    Same as they are in boot camp. You should be in a position to exceed the boot camp minimum requirements before you ship.

    It is my understanding that typically before you ship out your recruiter will administer a PT test to make sure you're ready. My particular requirements were (because I'm in the 30-39 age range): 1.5 mile run in 13:36 24 push ups in 1 min 35 sit ups in one min Best of luck to you.

    Congrats! I just had a PT test today and passed everything but the run since I didn't do the run due to a current foot injury. I don't ship out until July 10th though so I have a few more weeks to get my foot better.

    You ship on a sunday? Where are you shipping from? I only ask because usually recruits ship out on Tuesdays.

    I believe for DEPOT they normally ship out on Sundays.

    @ Orbit-- Would like to hear your feedback and any advise after you graduate DEPOT

    Orbit, I'm in the same age range as you.  I passed my PT test last week and I'm also super excited to be leaving in a few days.  My recruiter has been making me pass PT test using these standards: 1.5 mile under 12:51, pushups: 29 and Situps:38.  

    I asked if the standards were different for us "old guys" in boot camp and they said that they're the same across the board.  I'm exceeding those standards but are they really the same for everyone or different due to age?
