The Latest Word on Minimum PFT Scores

  • Hi all, if you’re in the process of applying to OCS now with a PFT score between 225 and 275, I wouldn’t feel totally confident that my score is above the minimum if I were you!  With the economy the way it is, there have been an unusually high number of applicants, especially college grads.  Since the Corps can’t accept everyone, some applicants with passing scores have been rejected, or bumped for consideration in the next pool.  
  • My OSO has heard in the last week that a “probable” score to get in has dropped from 285 to 275 recently.  
  • In other news, officer selection officers have been instructed that air contracts are preferred.  
  • Last tip of the day: you might not hear if you get accepted to OCS until even the month before you would have to deploy!  So hang in there, get that PFT score up, don’t count on OCS class you pick!
  • Just some good tips you all might be able to use.

    Looks like you put a lot of work into this blog, and it shows! So are you headed to OCS anytime soon? Personally I’m shooting for anytime within the next year hopefully.

    Hi Optomist,
    Yes if all goes well I will be arriving at OCC 202 on Oct 2, with a flight contract.

    Maybe you’ll even get in there with me–hope all goes well! Keep working out and keep your eye on the goal.

    Good luck!

    Blog looks good. Hope all goes well with you in OCS. Or did you already get through? If so may you have the contract you were looking for. God Bless you and thank you very much for your service to this beloved country of ours.
