    So from what I've heard from friends, parents, and a few cadets, attending SLS has the potential to increase your chance of admission by 30-50%. Is this true? Also, what kind of evaluation will the cadets training us there do? And how tough is the actual CFA or is it not as rigorous as I imagine it to be?

    All the cadets in charge of taking care of you while you're there will conduct interviews and submit them...somewhere. They're evaluations and the personal recommendations of the cadets - I don't know how much they'll influence your admissions though :\

    Its just the CFA...if you prepare, you'll be fine...don't worry about it!

    Sheesh, what is up with all these juniors on SAF getting terrorized by SLS and the CFA? I mean, I know I was pretty excited to go last year but I just let go of (almost) everything and had fun. A lot of you guys here seem even more jittery than someone who got appointed and is going to the real deal.

    Relax...you'll have fun and you'll learn a lot about the academy.

    I'm just competitive in nature, I'm not worried about the CFA as I'm an athlete. West Point is my number one, and has been since I was 7, so I'm just trying to grind out the kinks and get a few answers. Thanks!

    One more question: If I can max out (the highest possible score) for a certain physical test, lets say push-ups (the max being 75 in 2 mins), does that help me a LOT? Because I can get 75 pushups in roughly 1 min 22 seconds or so. But I can barely get 10 pullups :/ so I'm hoping it evens out or helps me a lot.

    How fast you do the amount of reps has no bearing on your score however maxing out a component of the test does obviously give you some slack in the other areas. If you are able to max out one or 2 events it will definetly make your score extremley competitive and gives you a bigger margain for error in the other facets of the test. That being said its still definetly in your best interest to prepare to score the highest you can on each part of the CFA. If you can max the pushups and as long as you can run you should have 0 problem getting a good score with ur competitive spirit. Good Luck :thumb:
