    I have a nomination and my application is complete besides my CFA.

    I took the CFA today and did terribly. I am really not in terrible shape, I just didn't realize how burned out I was. This Saturday at my first drill meet I was third place individual female for physical strength, so I'm not incapable..I think I just needed more rest.

    Should I just wait until after break (when my PE teacher will be available again) to redo the CFA and finish my application..?

    Today my scores were:

    Bb throw: 27 feet
    Pull ups: 1
    Shuttle run: 11.0
    Sit ups: 86
    Push-ups: 50
    Mile: 8:20

    Are these decent, or at least probably passing? I'm worried about my shuttle run and my basketball throw, and although my mile is pretty slow, I think it's passing..

    Isn't today (1/31/14) the deadline to submit your CFA?

    If you fail even one part of the CFA, you fail the entire thing.

    Exercise Max. Average
    Women
    Basketball Throw 66′ 41′
    Pull-Ups (women) 7 3
    Flexed Arm Hang (women) 63 sec 24 sec
    Shuttle Run 8.6 sec 9.7 sec
    Modified Sit-Ups (crunches) 95 78
    Push-Ups 50 41
    One Mile Run 6:00 7:35

    DD passed with one less foot on bb, slightly faster shuttle and another pull up or two but slower mile. I think she maxed the sit ups and and almost maxed the push ups.

    Lillian, I know you think it's not your best, but DD had following scores:
    BB throw: 28 ft
    Flexed arm hang: 30 sec
    shuttle run : 11.3 sec
    Sit ups : 65
    Push ups: 47
    Mile: 7.10

    DD has receieved her appointment to USAFA on Jan 17th.
    Please keep in mind that CFA is not the only thing the admissions board looks at. It is the entire person. CFA is only a part and does not carry as much weight as other aspects of the total person. DD and I figured that because she was given an appointment that USAFA will get the person to the physical fitness they desire.

    Thank you!! :)

    I was mostly just concerned with whether I passed, and it looks like I probably did.

    The first post in the thread was from earlier after I had taken the CFA for practice.

    I know the averages, and know I am below in some sections, but I wanted to know whether it was likely that I passed. I submitted my results today.

    Good luck to you, Lillian.

    DD is working out almost every day, following the work out found on the admissions fitness page. She's doing this because she is not an athelte but still wants to improve her results before BCT.
    She also works out every Monday night with the Marines. She is trying to improve her upper body strength, and does not want to let her team mates down.
