    So what does it take to pass the cfa. I don't think I will fail but I was just wondering.

    Passing the CFA is fairly easy, what is hard is getting a score that is competitive against other candidates. I don't remember the exact numbers, but for men it was like and 8:30 mile, 40 push-ups, 40 situps, 1 pull ups, {these numbers were given to me by a third party which means it could all be false}. You should just focus on working out hard and doing your best, also remeber that the CFA is only 10% of your overall admissions file

    I have no idea but you should be more concerned with what it takes to max it.

    Thinking positively will help. :)

    Thanks. You guys are right. I guess I do need to stop worrying so much. I just need to work hard to get the scores I want.

    Also, you didn't state if you were male or female. Different standards.

    West Point does not publish their CFA standards. However, on the admissions page they do publish score "averages". Aim for those averages, at least.

    If you are going to SLS, it will behoove you to practice the test before you go and show up ready to take it and pass. They will inform you at SLS whether or not you have passed the test.
