    How much does athletics play a part in admission?

    I've been interested in applying at USAFA, but I don't play any sports other than my school's rifle team (I have lettered in rifle). I just don't have the time to join another sport. Being appointed would be absolutely amazing, and I'm wondering if I can make up for this with my CFA scores...

    CFA-Basketball Throw

    I took my CFA and passed all events except for the basketball throw. I threw 49 ft. I was authorized a retake almost immediately after my first test. I have been practicing the basketball throw and have gotten up to 58 ft. I was wondering if this is passable?

    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...

    CFA concern/question

    I'm a female candidate at USNA, and after searching this site for weeks, I can't find anyone answering one of the specific questions I have. (If it has been answered somewhere else, please link me to the thread.) I took my CFA in late September and submitted it to USNA. I was relatively pleased...

    CFA Retake

    I just received word that I need to retake the CFA by November 27th and am scared, here are my precious scores that I just received (I do believe that I can perform much better on the mile because when I took it I was sick and had to run in 25 degree weather while it was snowing) I think that I...

    Question about CFA scoring

    Would anyone here know how the CFA is actually scored? In the Instructions to candidates packet, they say that the "Max" scores in each event are equivalent to 100 points for that category, and that candidates should shoot for at least the "Goal" scores collected as averages from the class...

    Rand Report and CFA scoring

    So, some threads here reference the rand report on SAs and USMA in particular. I took the time to read through it. One thing I saw was that if you score a 650 or above on the CFA you get the maximum, 800, points towards your WCS in the athletics section. Does anyone know if this has been...
