So here are DS's results from the CFA he took yesterday. He's trying to get in West Point or the Air Force Academy. Basketball throw: 66'7" Pull-ups: 11 Shuttle Run: 8.7 Sit-ups: 82 Push-Ups: 69 Mile: 7 minutes; 04 seconds. While not his best that he could do with more practice, he is inclined to submit the results and see what happens. He has a fairly strong file (4.17 QPA with AP and honors classes; 3 year letter winner for football - team captain this year; lots of community service work; he does have a part-time job as well which has limited his extracurricular activities substantially. 1380 SAT but the writing part was only 18/24 which is his weakest area -- trying to write an essay in the format that those scorers are looking for. He has had 2 interviews with the Senators so far and will have his interview with the congressman at the beginning of December. PA is a very competitive state however as far as the nominations go. If he doesn't get in this year, he has decided to attend an university where he will take do the ROTC program and reapply next year. Thanks for your input!
