Hello, my name is **REMOVED** and I am a reapplicant applying to be in the USNA or USAFA Class of 2024. I am currently at Georgia Tech doing Army ROTC. I am posting this thread because of my desperation over the mile run on the CFA. I was recently asked to retake the CFA because of my mile time and here’s what I got: 67’ bb throw, 13 pull ups, 9.3 shuttle run, 57 push ups, 85 sit ups, and a 7:50 mile. USNA is pleased with this and is going to review my application, USAFA however, wants nothing to do with a mile time over seven minutes. The rest of my application is marginally above average, I got a 3.6 here at Georgia Tech and was on the dean’s list and all my academic and leadership credentials in High School were certainly above average (33 ACT, 3.94 GPA, Eagle Scout, national and state competitions, state leadership position in a youth government program etc.). I also have received nominations to both USAFA and USNA (second time being nominated to USNA). At this point my entire hope and dream of attending USAFA is riding on this mile time and it is mentally killing me. I am desperate to get this time under 7 and want any advice at all. Normally I can run in the 6 something range but after the CFA I’m just exhausted. USAFA says there are no minimums but that just isn’t true, there are minimums and applications get cancelled and left unreviewed (I know from personal experience) due to failure to pass those numerical values.
