    I took the CFA today, I just wanted to know if my scores are good enough to send in, or should I wait and train harder.

    My Scores
    Basketball Throw: 71' 2"
    Pull-Ups: 10
    Shuttle Run: 8.15 (seconds)
    Sit-Ups: 76
    Push-Ups:54
    1-Mile Run: 7:11

    P.s. Does USMA take height and weight into consideration, I am 6'4" and weigh 225 lbs? (I am 11% body fat)

    This isn't supposed to be how it works. First you take practice tests if you want. Then you take THE test.
    When my daughter took it she was required to complete the form and the instructor was to enter the score as they went. They both then signed the form and it was mailed in.

    For USMA - you take the CFA test and send it in. That is generally it. Occassionally, admissions may give a candidate an opportunity to retake the test. These are usually cases where they have a candidate who is "close" to an appointment and failed the CFA.

    If you fall off the height/weight chart then you will be taped.

    "If you fall off the height/weight chart then you will be taped."

    What does this mean, I have taken many practice CFAs by the way

    SpartanShock -

    that's fine that you have taken many practice CFA's - I think you missed my point. When you take the CFA for the test (not practice) you, the helper and the test administrator all agree before hand that this is a test. You should not be trying to decide after whether or not to send in the scores. If you took the test then those are your scores. Just send them in.

    To determine your body fat % they tape your neck and abdomen. You are allowed 20% body fat - for your age/sex.

    Thanks, I am <11% body fat. My gym teacher administered the test. On the online application I was simply asked to give W.P. his email address. I took the test at 6:30 AM the day after a long football game at night which left me stuffy. All I am saying is that I (believe) that I could retake the test this week and score at least a little bit better.

    All I have left to do for my application is the CFA. I am worried that I will hand the application in too late and as a result I feel as though I am rushing (but doing a good job), but I wanted to make sure my CFA scores (if I were to submit these) are competive.
