Ok I've got several questions so any help would be greatly appreciated. How important is the CFA. I've got the USAFA catalog in front of me, and I know it says that it is part of Admissions Panel 20%, but what would it do to my chances of receiving an appointment if I didn't do so well on it? I know I can take it multiple times, but I want to knock it out in one go so any advice on what I should be shooting for would be appreciated. (don't worry I know to shoot for my best) Another question is where do I find the address for my school to mail in my transcripts? Do I just have them send it straight into the admissions office or is there a specific office or suite they should send it to? Next question...what about grades? Currently I have a 3.94 unweighted GPA (three B's). I have been in my school's academic honors program and I am currently taking all IB core classes except for English (taking a college writing course for that one). I've heard that once you start getting close to a 3.85 it gets a little dicey, but where is the definitive point where I should start worrying? Finally, is it possible to receive an appointment to attend the Air Force Academy then later have it rescinded before even entering? Besides obvious reasons like a felony, drugs, etc. is there anything that would disqualify or cause an appointee to lose his/her slot in the class of 2013 after being accepted? Sorry for so many questions and thanks for you help answering them all. I truly appreciate it. One more thing. How hard is it to get a Presidential nomination? My dad is a retired with pay Air Force, Major O-4. How many people typically apply and receive a nomination. Isn't it about 100 per class?
