    Hey! Sorry about another question about the CFA. I did a practice CFA today. I take the CFA in 10 days. I was wondering do you think these scores would pass:

    B-ball throw: 69 ft.
    Pull-ups: 9:frown:
    Shuttle run: 9.1 seconds
    Push-ups: 61
    Sit-ups: 89
    1 Mile Run: 6:26

    Just to let you know I'm not the most athletic kid, thats why my scores are low. The only sport I do these days is weightlifting. Thanks.

    Not really Athletic? Your scores argue otherwise. I believe the Award for most male pull ups at SLS was 17 so 9 is by no means a bad score. Your doing well, just give it your best in 10 days.

    I agree - I thought your scores looked really good. My son submitted his to AF and was told he had done really well overall (by the counselor at the academy and by his ALO). His were very comparable to yours - one more pullup, few more situps, slightly faster runs, but also a lot less pushups.

    When he was at SLS, they asterisked and told the students on their CFA's that they took if any area weren't passing. At that one (tired from the week before at Navy) he did like 6 pullups and 35 pushups and they were both still passing. Obviously not extremely high scoring, but passing.

    I'm sure yours are great scores if you can do that when you do the test for real! Good luck!

    I would advice getting around 12 pulls ups but since it's only 10 days away then aim for about 10. As far as your run goes, it's totally mental and you can do better on the real thing if you push your body to do it. Just think of what the run could mean and how it's all you have to do before you can stop and rest.
