    Hello everyone,

    I was accepted to both SLE and NASS and will be attending both back to back weeks. I know that I will have to take a CFA at both of these programs. I know that both these programs are also very physically challenging. If I do better on my CFA at SLE (the program I am attending first) than on my CFA at NASS, will the Naval Academy accept my better scores? I am worried I might not do as well on my CFA at NASS because I will be tired from SLE. I understand that if I take a CFA over the summer I can send the scores to multiple academies. Does the same apply here? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, if you do well during one of the summer sessions, you can go to your application portal and request that the scores be sent from say USMA to USNA or vice versa. If your summer scores are good but not great, you can redo them after SLE/NASS (on your own) and send those scores in.

    Most CFA scores I saw were better at NASS. Either they grade easier, the candidates aren't as tired, or are more accustomed to the test by then. Of course that could also be because only those that did better wanted their scores transferred. The only summer session that won't record scores is Air Force. I highly recommend that candidates take full advantage of every opportunity to take the CFA that they have. Instead of just transferring in a score from another summer session, make sure you take it for that SA and then have your other scores forwarded.

    Worth mentioning that USAFA in the past has allowed one CFA only to be submitted. So don't send that USMA/NASS one there unless you know it's better than you can do locally!

    Also, DS did CFA's at all three programs. NASS score was also higher than USMA. USAFA does not score at summer seminar for a reason... the altitude is too tough for most not acclimated. And his unofficial score showed it!

    From the WP admission meeting last night in GA. CFA given at SLE. If you fail it doesn't get recorded. If you pass, it goes in the systems. If you do pass, continue to improve and take again Dec/Jan and submit the better scores.

    My DD joined track to get in shape for the mile. Now she's trying to develop some muscle memory for the pull ups!

    She will be in SLE session two, NASS Session three, and three days later, Girls State. June is going to be busy!

    Her Uncle will be picking her up at West Point and chanting "Go Navy, Beat Army" for the drive to his Alma Mater, which of course is the USNA. ;)
