    Doesn't work that way. If you have a 24 in any of the sections, then you aren't qualified. Obviously, Math and S/R are the 2 "more" important, but the academy doesn't look at it that way. You get "X" amount of points for your ACT or SAT scores. The air force academy uses programs to equalize everything. Some people don't have IB or AP classes available. Some people took both. Some took one and not the other. Some took ACT's while others took SAT. For the statistician who get's excited about such stats, there might be some importance; but for the applicant, it's not an issue of which one is more important. I.e. In other words, you can't rationalize anything by saying: "Oooo, I got a 30 in math, that will make up or offset my 26 in S/R". With that same logic, you could say: "Ooooo, I threw the basketball 85 feet in the CFA; that will offset my 8 minute mile run". Truth is; fail ANY PART of the CFA, and you fail. Fail any part of the ACT, and you fail. Which is more important isn't something that has any significance.
