I have been frequenting these forums since I started training with the hopes of applying to become a CRO about three to four months ago. I have been able to find a lot of great information that has proven very useful. Now that I only have one semester of college left and I am training harder than ever, I would really like to find a mentor that could help prepare me for the road ahead.

I have applied to OTS and plan on applying for the Fall 2017 CRO selection board. As a civilian with comparably little exposure to the world I am trying to enter, I could definitely use some guidance from someone who has been through what I am trying to prepare for. If there is anyone who would be willing to give me some pointers, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the reply, nl1098. Any help is greatly appreciated.

My most recent PAST numbers:
Pull-ups: 14
Sit-ups: 75
Push-ups: 46
3-mile Run: 23:52
2x 25m Underwaters: Pass
1500m Swim (with fins): 27:22

I know I can perform slightly better than those numbers, at least on calisthenics, given a day of proper rest/recovery beforehand. My run time and push-up count have both been improving pretty steadily for a couple of months now, so I should be able to reach minimum qualifications on those fairly soon. I spent some time building a good foundation and just recently started following the SORL DEP Indoc Prep Workout program from the 24SOW website.
