    My DS sent his video clips of this pullups and pushups to WP a couple of weeks ago. He did the same reps as at SLE. He hasn't heard a thing.

    Has anyone, who was required to video record, heard anything? Any feedback?

    Padre101 - Did you use a phone or a video camera? DS just got the email!

    @FLIPPER@622 , we used DS's gopro, then downloaded it to vimeo and sent the link to WP.

    Thanks -
    Can't imagine admissions having time to watch thousands of applicant videos....lots of extra work for them at such a busy time.

    Question for you: Did your DS use his NASS or SLE CFA score as his official score?

    Rumor has it that the videos are sent to the USMA's PE department for them to review to ensure standardization.

    He passed the CFA at SLE. He took the CFA at his school to send scores to USNA & USAFA using a Phys. Ed. teacher. I told him to send the new scores in to USMA as an update.

    Is everyone going to have to record events? I took my CFA at SLE.

    It doesn't seem like everyone. My DS passed at SLE and NASS. He still was asked to do the video.

    Everyone who got picked to do the video had a different way they did their CFA.

    If you weren't asked, you don't have to worry about it (for now).

    I received an e-mail yesterday notifying me that I need to upload videos for push-ups and pullups. I find it strange how the events are not required to be in sequence, as they are to be uploaded in two separate videos.

    I understand your feelings. But why ask why. Just do it.

    My DS submitted his videos. His Portal is all green now.

    Best wishes to you.

    I took the CFA at SLE and retook it last month. They too had me submit the videos. I have not received a further correspondence from West Point about it since I uploaded them.
