    When applying for both the USNA and NROTC application, are the DODMERB, test scores, CFA, etc.. judged on the same metric? I am applying to both, and I just wanted to make sure I could maximize efficiency by streamlining both applications.

    DoDMERB is done once and the results are sent to the SA and ROTC programs when the program makes a request to DoDMERB.
    I believe the fitness assessment for NROTC and USNA are different so they will not transfer. The CFA is the same between USNA, USMA, and USAFA and could be used at all 2 as long as the person administering the test is recognized by each SA.
    Test Scores, which test scores. SAT/ACT scores are sent directly to each program. Not sure what you are asking here.
    "Judged on same metric?" Each program will evaluate and weight the components of your application differently. But, it will be similar.

    There's a CFA for applying to ROTC scholarships too?

    The NROTC representative had access to CFA scores from NASS I believe. Not sure if my daughter arranged for USNA to send the scores or if he somehow could "see" them. She did not have to do the AFA and her file is now marked as Complete.

    Each service is different. NROTC Marine Option does the regular Marine PFT.

    Do not assume that NROTC has access and will accept the CFA administered for the USNA application. Last year, a few posters mentioned that their NROTC recruiter somehow accessed and accepted those scores , but that was not the case for DD. DD inquired with her recruiter about that possibility; she was told that they would not accept CFA results and that she needed to take the separate NROTC fitness exam. By the time she figured that out, the weather was brutal and her performance suffered accordingly (though she still passed and got the scholarship). Moral of the story: plan ahead (which you seem to be doing already). Best of luck ;).
