    Is there any indication on how much a CFA is weighted?

    👋 Hi Service Academy Forum, I'm a prospective midn. in CA with a bad -- almost horrid -- CFA. Like, my scores are barely passing anecdotal minimums I've seen for pullups, crunches, pushups, and the 1MR. However, I feel like I have an okay application to balance it: - 1590 SAT and 4.0 - founder...

    Congressional Appointments & CFA Deadline

    I only recently found out about USAFA halfway through my first college semester, but I already know this is where I have to go. I have a lot of work to do so I can perform well on the CFA, and I know that congressional appointment deadlines are approaching. My questions are if I should wait...

    Candidate activities record

    States “describe all leadership positions you have held”. The other sections state exactly to explain actions. Does this mean that the leadership section still wants us to describe actions?

    Trouble with LOR/app portal

    I put down and saved all my recommenders and evaluators, yet they say that they have not received any emails from USNA. I tried deleting them and re-entering them with no luck. (The app says once I press ‘save’ it will automatically send them an email). I tried emailing USNA with no response...

    Family Gross Income Question (USAFA Form 146)

    I've been filling out the Personal Data Record and I came across the family income question. I live with one parent since both are divorced. Would the income be the custodial's parents income or both parents combined? Thanks!

    Will AFROTC allow me to double-major in one etechnical and one non-techincal major?

    Hey Everyone, I want to study economics (a non-technical major); however, I have been informed at only about 10% of scholarship students are allowed to study non-technical non-foreign language majors. One suggestion I received was to study Applied Math instead of Economics because they are very...

    Varsity Letter

    Let me explain my situation: I am a rising senior and will be involved in track next year. Since track season is AFTER the West Point application deadline, I will not be able to include the varsity letter I get next year in this year’s application. Is it even worth doing track if I can’t put it...

    How likely am I get an AFROTC scholarship?

    This fall I will be a high school senior. I am not particularly concerned about my academics, I am a little concerned about my fitness, and I am very concerned about my leadership experience. I have a 1410 on the SAT, although I am scheduled to take it again in September and I have gotten...

    Updating Submitted Application

    It seems to be best practice to submit applications as early as possible to maximize chances of acceptance - say I submit with my current SAT scores, can I later update the same application with my senior Fall score?

    What should I do?

    I was notified that I did not receive an appointment from USAFA. I'll be honest, I was very disappointed. This is due to me not being able to "receive my waiver". BUT here is the problem/question I have. I was notified that my waiver should be processed within 15 business days back in...

    Question Regarding Teacher Evaluations

    Current junior here, I was wondering how flexible the teacher evaluations are. It states on the website that a 11-12 grade english and math instructor must complete the evaluation, but I have finished all available math courses by sophomore year. I do take extracurricular Actuarial exams to...

    CGAS/Application Question/Help

    First off, some backstory. Last year, I applied to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. I ended up on the waitlist for CGAS. I never got off the waitlist, and in reality I'm very lucky that I was not outright rejected as I had no medical on file (I was in a tough spot and chose to enlist ASAP instead...

    USCGA Medical/Application Question

    Is it normal for this academy in particular to first view applicants/candidates applications first, then decide if they want to pursue certain applicants and sub-sequentially want to look at the candidate's medical DoDMERB status? It seems like other academies look at medical status while...

    Application Question

    How long does it generally take for the Medical status to show up on the USMMA application portal after a decision from DODMERB? i.e. DoDMERB shows a status such as "Qualified"-- When would USMMA acknowledge this on the application portal?

    Will my grades hurt my application?

    Just got my finals for the semester back and although they are not terrible, they are not particularly great. The question of whether or not my grades are going to hurt my application has always tormented me, so I figured I would ask a more educated audience. Here is a bite size bit of what my...

    Enlisted to West Point

    I am looking for some insight from Soldier applicants who gained direct admission to USMA. Some background: I had an unimpressive ACT score (28), HS GPA and class rank (3.4, probably around the 50 percentile class rank). Enlisted in the Army NG, flipped the switch and started crushing my...

    Other Applicants from my High School

    There's another person from my high school applying to the AFA, same year as me. He's basically a shoe-in though, as both his parents are AFA Alumni, and he had good grades, etc.. I, however, don't have parents in the Air Force; does this automatically mean I won't get accepted? I also have good...

    Double majors

    How would doubling majors affect daily life at AFA? It would require taking extra classes, and would make me busier between that and regular training, correct? Is it manageable, or is it something rarely done by AFA cadets?

    What does it take to qualify for an LOA?

    What does one need in order to receive an LOA? I know FF interviews may be a new requirement. Also, can someone still receive an LOA if they completed their entire application(including nomination)?
