    I am planning to take the CFA sometime next week for the Kings Point application. I was wondering if my coach could administer the exam or does a teacher with a PE degree have to conduct the assessment?

    Furthermore, can admissions review your academic profile before receiving the CFA or do they wait to review the applicant's profile after receiving the CFA? I have already been deemed qualified by DoDMERB.

    Fitness Test

    The Commander of our JROTC conducted my DS's fitness test.
    If that's not available to you check with your USMMA Admissions Field Representative... My Husband & I both were there cheering him on.
    I think an audience helps.

    Csexton, for the class of 15 my DS, the packet was reviewed prior to completion. DS was then assigned "Conditional" status pending CFA ( or PFA I can't remember which term) , congressional nomination AND satisfaction of completion of high school with good grades and not screwing UP.
    That was a great motivator throughout senior year!
    Our schools AD administered the test.

    As of today DS has successfully completed 4 semesters at KP and has had some absolutely amazing opportunities. His first sea term begins in November.
    Good luck and best wishes.

    Congrats. Sea year is when the fun begins. Or one realizes what they have stepped into. Or a little bit of both.

    Oops! Trimesters, KP is on trimesters. Still I think four trimesters at KP is equivelent to four semesters elsewhere in course load. DS is waiting out the storm aboard the beautiful schooner Summerwind.
    And conrats to KP's crew on their new TP 52, Flying Jenny, for winning the IRC East Coast Championship!

    get it done, get it submitted, check to make sure everything arrived.

    1. Call admissions and check with them about having your coach administer the CFA. Just get it done! (asap)

    2. Yes, I am pretty sure that admissions will review your profile before receiving the CFA. You might get a "hold" status pending that CFA.
    :cool: Best advice; get all that stuff done asap, get it sent in to KP, then confirm with KP that everything has been received.

    Best of luck to you.:smile:

    The head of the Athletic department administered my son's CFA. Good luck to you and if you have any questions about the admissions process, just post them or message us.
