    Hello all,

    I have been accepted into SLE session two, which start this Saturday. I have recently heard a rumor from a classmate (who is also going to session 2) that my CFA scores from SLE go into some sort of "system" and thus can be used for applications to other service academies, who can also see this "system." Can anyone confirm this? If no such system exists, is there anyway to use scores from my SLE CFA for other SAs? I am wondering because I recently took the CFA, and was not too happy about my performance. Nothing terrible, but I know I can do much better. I'm hoping to improve at SLE, and to use my scores at SLE for other academies if they are better.

    I would love to hear others weigh in on this,too. DS is heading off to NASS on Sat, has no PE teacher at his HS, so using the CFA for all the SAs would be so helpful!

    There is no electronic system by which you can send the scores or from which the other SA's can retrieve them.

    If you want your CFA score from SLE sent to other SA's, you request it through your RC. It is quite routine - just send RC an email requesting USMA send results to other SA. (and no, it won't be frowned upon or hurt your candidacy in any way). Obviously, make sure those are the scores you want to use for other SA before making the request.

    Remember video requirement for USMA. If possible at NASS, have someone record video of push-ups and pull-ups on smartphone - unless you have been told USMA will accept NASS results without video.

    I'm a 2021 and went through this. I went to NASS and took the CFA there. That was the only one I ever took and I contacted my RC via email to send it to USAFA and USNA. Real easy. I believe your chances of getting asked to record videos of your pull-ups and push-ups, though, do go up. I had to do them and it wasn't really any big deal. Practice a whole lot for that CFA.
