    CFA Deadline

    Hi all, I'm currently applying to USAFA and my Candidate Kit is due on the first of November. Does this mean I have to complete the CFA by that time as well? Also, the portal says that once I submit the Candidate Kit, a checklist of more items will appear that also need to be completed by the...

    I have a few questions on the CFA. 1. Does it have to be all in one sitting without rest? Like can I do 5 pull ups in a row and then stay in the resting pull up position for a couple of seconds to catch my breath before resuming? It says to continue until you cannot do a repetition but below it...

    I took my CFA 3 weeks ago and sent the results to WP. I emailed them yesterday and asked when it would be reviewed, and they replied that it already was reviewed but I had to have my file qualified before it would turn green. I really want to know if I passed my CFA and I was hoping someone here...

    Does the check mark mean my scores were accepted?

    I took the CFA yesterday and I'm eager to find out if my scores were accepted. This is what I see in the portal. Does the fact that it says received and processed mean my scores were accepted?

    I think I'm going to fail my CFA. Any advice?

    I only started looking at the West Point process in October. I had never really thought about it, but a school counselor recommended the school to me after hearing I was going into the Army. I have never been a physically fit individual. In middle school, I was clinically obese. I've made a lot...

    USMA & USAFA Sam Fitness Standards?

    My CFA results were accepted by USMA. One section (B.B. throw) is below average quite a it, but apparently it passed for West Point. Should I also forward these scores to USAFA? (As in USAFA has same minimum). Or retake to be safe?

    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...
