Hi everyone, I am a junior in high school and applying to the USAFA this summer. I know that you have to perform the candidate fitness exam, but I was wondering when do I do this? Also, I know that in order to be approved for the academy you have to be medically examined, and that there are a lot of factors that can disqualify you. First, when does this medical exam occur and second, would a bunion disqualify me? I am planning to have my bunion removed in early August. My bunion does not prevent me from performing physical activity in any way. However, I want to be sure that I get my fitness and medical exams out of the way BEFORE I have surgery, since recovery takes at least three months. Can anyone help me? Thank you!
