    CFA Question

    After reading through several CFA discussions, I've gathered that one should strive to beat the averages (or better yet max) on each section. However, I have not been able to find a lot of examples of scores which have passed. In your opinion, based off of your test, your DS test, or from what...

    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...

    I am a male applying to the USNA class of 2024 and I passed my CFA, but I am wondering what that means, why is it just pass or fail? I am still training to improve my score, I am a bit concerned that passing isn't enough for the CFA.

    DS just texted his Session 2 SLE score 622 and "No Risk" email. He does not know what his score was at NASS last week, but several components were a little better. He didn't know to ask NASS squad leader to video his pushups and pullups because we didn't learn about that until middle of last...
