Not with a 35 on the ASVAB, she didn't post a GT score but the last I read was a minimum of 110 GT score.

Not just that but if she can't do a duck walk, she would get eaten alive at Army OCS. First she would have to get through basic training. If she got through that then it's on to OCS at Benning. The combination of academics and PT at OCS would crush her. Lots of running involved. There are 3 weeks in the field of patrols from squad to platoon level, peer evaluations, etc. If she got through that then there would be her basic course and depending on branch, the academics could get ridiculously tough (reminded me of college) combined with rigorous PT. OCS is only 12 weeks. Some of the basic courses are 4+ months long.
Combine the expectations with being away from home, lack of communication, stress, etc. and it doesn't appear that OP has it in her.
I certainly would not want her as a LT in my formation just from what I've read here but I've only got 8 years in as a commissioned officer so what do I know...
