I am at BOLC now, and I have one big piece of advice: if you are not a PT superhero, please start working on your sit-ups, push-ups and two-mile run now
, before you arrive at BOLC. You will have a diagnostic PT test within the first three days of arriving, and your first record PT test will be two weeks later. You do NOT want a PT failure to hinder you! Trust me. I failed the first record PT test, and it was not fun to have that hanging over my head. I passed the second one this past Friday, thankfully. They are going to have one more in two weeks, and people who fail that one will not graduate, and may be held over here at Ft. Sam until they pass, and will possibly lose their assignments. These ramifications are new -- they used to let people move on without a pass, but no longer. You might all be PT studs, so I am probably preaching to the choir ... but just in case.
They added this last PT test out of the goodness of their hearts -- it wasn't originally scheduled.
Some of the people here have said their recruiters told them not to worry about PT tests, that they'd whip them into shape here ... not entirely true! Some people at BOLC might have a larger gap between failing and passing than can be overcome in a few short weeks.
Good luck, everyone!
