    I took the CFA this morning, these were my scores.

    Basketball throw: 62ft
    Pull-Ups: 15
    Shuttle Run: 9.01 secs
    Sit-Ups: 74
    Push-Ups: 71
    Mile: 6:28

    The CFA is the only thing left (besides the DODMerb) for my application to West Point. I was thinking it'd be best to submit it now, even if my basketball throw is a bit below average. I want my application to be considered as soon as possible, and waiting another couple of weeks just to bring up my basketball throw doesn't seem to be worth it.

    Thoughts? Would it be okay to submit now, or would it be in my advantage to take it again?

    Thanks!

    I say submit it. You want to be asked to do the DODMERB sooner rather than later, in case of an issue that requires more info.

    I would submit. I think there is some advantage to getting a complete file. Also an admissions officer told us at the Dallas Black and Gold candidates dinner that if you wanted your DoDMERB to open, then complete your candidate statements.

    I would. They are passing and that's what matters. If you have time after getting everything else done you can ask your RC to let you re-try it.

    Thanks for all your replies! Considering the general consensus seems to be to submit the scores, and I was leaning that way before anyway, I've decided to use this score.
