    3 week fast before medicals. In all honesty, I think that's a range to shoot for as it looks like it aligns with a standard BMI chart. I'm in the 6'1 category and right at the upper limits with an athletic build. I'm sure during medicals they will have some leniency if you exceed the range but are in great shape.
    You may not get a 3 week notice to fast. I had one week notice. They e-mailed me on MAR 9 to report on MAR 16.

      The fast was kind of a joke. Taking advantage of the little bit of extra time to put in the extra work.

      • ArmyDrill do you think everyone will receive a CJO within 6 weeks timeframe like you got? Or do you think it will vary depending on academy timeline.

          It could be sooner. I interviewed with the first batch of V banders but didnt get a CJO when they did. I received my CJO a few weeks after they did. Im not sure if it’s all random selection at that point.
