    CFA and LOA

    I received an LOA for West Point around a month ago, and am afraid I'm going to fail the CFA. I'm taking it this Thursday, and have to submit it by 10/15/23. If I send the results on the day I take it or very soon after, if I fail will my LOA be rescinded? I've heard it takes a while for them to...

    Can LOA be revoked based on CFA?

    Hello, I have recently received an LOA for USMA not too long ago, but still, something troubles me. So for context, I only have my statements, nomination, medical qualification, and CFA scores left on my application for me to input. The only part that I am slightly worried about is the CFA. I...

    Fitness tests for different branches

    I can’t seem to find the papers for where my fitness instructor would record my results for the Army and AF fitness tests. I’ve found some random ones on google search, but no official ones through the website/app. Also, does AROTC require you to run 1 mile or 1.5 like the rest?

    "Good" scores for the CFA

    I am a rising high school senior who is applying to the academy for the class of 2025. I was hoping someone would have information as to what an average or good score on each of the events in the CFA is. I totally get why they don't give out a minimum score, as they probably do not want the...

    How am I doing? Am I ready for the CFA?

    I know the averages for the CFA are higher than this, but I still have some time to train before the CFA. Do you think with enough training, I can get my scores up? (I have been training twice daily in strength training and aerobics) These are my current scores in their respective categories...

    Max the CFA Basket-Ball Throw?

    Does anyone know how common it is for a candidate to MAX (102') the CFA Basket-Ball Throw? My DS is making great progress toward maxing out all of the other five CFA events, but the B-Ball throw is making the slowest progress. When he first started his CFA workout routine (more than three...

    CFA scoring points vs. the Whole Candidate Score

    Based on the RAND Corporation 2015 West Point Admissions Report, page 10, a candidate will earn the full 800 points in the Athletic Activity Level Score (which accounts for 10% of their overall Whole Candidate Score) if they have “a CFA score greater than 650”. This looks like double-credit...
