On Jan. 20th I had shoulder surgery to repair some torn muscles. I have yet to take the CFA and that's the only thing I have yet to do. I won't be cleared to do anything physically taxing (push ups, chin ups) on my shoulder. I contacted my admissions counselor and she told me to just take it when I'm healthy and that she'll write a note on my file saying why I couldn't complete my application. Has anyone been in a similar situation? This shoulder surgery will be a big deal for both my CFA and the dodmets. I'm aware that the last review board for admissions is coming up soon. It looks as though I'm going to end up re-applying next year. Everything in my file is done aside from the fitness test and I just got news that I have a nomination from one of my state's senators. Do you think my admissions counselor was giving me false hope by telling me to just take the CFA when I'm ready? How much weight does the CFA have to the admissions panel, and would they even consider my application if it's technically incomplete?
