Scheduled for medical exam & diagnostic PFT

I am scheduled for the medical exam on 10 May. Since I have to be at the examination no later than 5:15AM, it was recommended that I take advantage of the free hotel stay they offer. They put you up in a local hotel, feed you dinner, wake you up at 4:00AM, feed you breakfast, and send you off to the exam. Sounds like a good deal to me. After the exam (which can take anywhere from 4-6 hours, ugh) I am to report to the OSO office. I was told to bring a suit so I will look nice for my picture. Apparently they take pictures of all of the applicants and hang them on the wall. After my picture, I will be administered a diagnostic PFT (Physical Fitness Test).

The Marine Corps PFT includes:

  • Pullups (flex arm hang for females)
  • Crunches (2 minute time limit)
  • 3-mile run

To achieve a perfect score on the PFT, a male must do 20 consecutive pullups, 100 crunches in 2 minutes, and run 3-miles in 18 minutes.
