    Hello,
    I am nearing the end of my application and I will be able to submit it within the next several weeks in the hope that I will get a response before having to decide whether applying to other colleges will be necessary (the academy is my first choice). Now, I went to the summer seminar and took the CFA there. I want to know if my scores are fine where they are at, or if I should take the time to condition and then retake them at the end of September or early October and push back the date for when I submit my application?

    here are the scores (some of them i dont remember exactly):
    Bball throw: 55 or 59
    mile: 5 minutes 32 seconds
    shuttle run: around 8.6
    pushups: 75
    pullups: 16
    situps: 76 or 79

    I think if I retook it, I could max out mile, pushups, pullups, and hopefully increase bball throw and situps. So is it worth it? Thanks

    I probably should have read through the threads first because they were able to answer almost all of my questions... :rolleyes: Now, I have a much better understanding of the whole process. I guess sitting and waiting for either an LOA or a rejection letter within a few weeks isn't going to be the case. I will still have to look at other options. and since I can always update my application after submitting it, I might as well retake the CFA anyways.

    Scores look good to me, especially the run and push ups. Yeah, you could probably crank out a few more crunches, but your numbers are still very good. I see no reason to retake it unless you can significantly improve your scores across the board . . . and even then I'm not sure it will help as these are already good.

    You should ALWAYS have a Plan B. Since the whole USNA admission process is ever changing and it seems no one is in "for sure" - please have a plan B. My DS definitely wanted USNA, but also had a full Navy ROTC scholarship to another school (applied and was accepted to) - it helped with the long waiting process. He had his USNA app completed and in by the fall, MOC nomination the end of December and his appointment came the end of January:thumb: But you just never know, thus Plan B or even C is necessary!
