    Hello all,
    I just got a letter in the mail saying that I am "board qualified" and I have no idea what that means. Does anyone know?

    Also, I took the CFA over the weekend and these are my scores... (I am a female)

    Sit ups- 85
    Pull ups- 1
    Bball throw- 40 ft
    Push ups- 20 :frown:
    Mile- 7:20
    Shuttle run: 10.02

    Do you think I passed? Should I retake it?

    Based on what you've said, the letter means you are scholastically qualified. That's one of the three arms of being "triple qualified." So, good news.

    As for the CFA, I have posted average scores from a few years ago in a sticky above. I would say your scores are generally solid (great that you did a pull-up). The pushups should be a bit better and the shuttle run a bit faster. If you can significantly improve (i.e., at least 15 pushups while not dropping in anything else), it may be worth retaking. However, this CFA shouldn't hold you back if you are otherwise a very strong candidate.

    The one caveat is that, if you are not active in sports (in or out of school), USNA will focus more heavily on your CFA as it's the only real measure of physical fitness. In that case, I would lean more heavily toward retaking as you want to be well above average to demonstrate your ability to handle the rigorous PT at USNA.

    Class sizes in the last two years are right at 1200-1260.
