Hello!

Just wanted to see if I can get some advices from some members of CAP that might have went through the program.

I am competing for a enrollment allocation this year, any advices on getting into the door?

I have also created a really bad habit with CAP with the 1 mile run with a 7:10 time. Regardless with the endless morning pt sessions, my body just can't get use to the 1.5 mile run. I can run a 12:30 but I really want to lose my bad habits and improve the time to be competitive. My body just can't handle the extra half mile.

Train 2-3 miles at a time. That'll help your 1.5 mile.

You're going to have an unpleasant experience at LEAD unless you can endure a 3+ mile run, so work on it.

As far as getting an EA, how you perform on the 1.5 mile run has very little to do with your chances of being selected. The run portion is only part of the FA, which itself is only a small piece of the package. Yes, run and practice hard, but there's a point of diminishing returns where your time would be better spent improving other areas.

1 semester won't do much to your GPA, but make sure to keep the grades up. Do yourself a favor and get an AFOQT study book to familiarize yourself with the test. You don't need to devote your life to AFOQT prep, but knowing what to expect in the test will be highly beneficial.

Finally, class rank matters. Do your very best in training, LLAB, flight meetings... anything and everything, to get noticed. Be a good wingman and support your team. Individual performance, being noticeably outstanding, and functioning as a team player within your flight are crucial to success at LEAD.
