    no shit, you also have to know your general orders, alphabet, have a direct deposit account, know how to read a map, know how to march, etc. I'm checked off on everything except the PT test

    You have to do one the 1st week of basic, which is in 3 weeks, so what's the problem?

    What did you do to get bumped to e3 (after the APFT)?

    you have some college experience or something?

    Actually the first week we run 1 mile, do like 17 push ups and like 20 something situps.

    Also im a big motherfucker, I played strong tackle in football for 4 years then after HS I sat on my ass for over a year. I just recently got to the point where I ran a decent mile, muchless run two. The pushups and situps arent hard. I just dont know if I can meet the time limit for the 2 mile.

    As for my promotion I just got lucky. Guy that was joining we referred each other and becuase where im at they were short on people and I was at the time about 90ish sure I wanted to join the military the sergeant there told me if I went to MEPS in 2 days and passed everything ect and joined hed bump me to e-3. So I went from sitting on my ass monday to joining thursday the same week is why.

    Plus having a good ASVAB and stuff didnt hurt either. :bigthumb:

    Eitherway im gonna try my hardest to get it done. Ive just been takin it easy running and stuff latly cuase I didnt know I had to run 2 miles. I just though I wouldnt start running till I was in basic. Eitherway I cant complain to much. I got a pretty good deal though everything in my enlistment.

    Only 5 or 6 months. People think i've been in DEP a lot longer because i've been hanging around teh barracks for so long, but I haven't been in DEP as long as people make it out to be and obsess about.

    i've had poolees longer than 2 years
    this one guy showed up at the recruit station once a week every week and it took 13 months to convince him to finally enlist. he just showed up, no ever called him, pressured him, or went out of their way to harass him.

    lol I pretty much called my recruiter asked him for info and stuff. Hes like well I can come out to your house monday and talk to you if you want. I said thats cool, he brought along the sergeant runnin the station. Sergeant was like I dont want to waste time here. Hes like how much do you really wanna join, I told him hes like thats cool here in info, if you wanna go down to MEPS on wednesday and thursday to see what you qualify for and stuff then ill give you this and that, if not gimmie a call when you want to, but I wont give you nothing.

    Probally not the best tactics but it worked for me!

    Not to mention got it all in writing!

    Oh ya I got e-2 based on college credits alone... I could have done the DEP shit to get e-3, or just have someone join up too and use me as a reference.. but I was lazy... and stupid...
