    My packet is due at the end of this month— I know that I have to have a CFA turned in by then, but is it possible to keep retaking it after that? My mile time and push-ups aren’t the best and I want to keep working on them, and I was told by someone that you can keep sending in scores until March. Is that true?
    Thanks!

    Why do you think your packet is due at the end of this month?
    Applicants have until January 31st to complete their online application, medical examination, and CFA.
    You just need to be "Complete Pending Review" by January 31st.

    You can update your CFA as often as you can get your Admissions Counselor to re-open that part of your application, until then.
    I don't know where on the USNA.edu site you read that you can re-take your CFA past the application deadline, but I wouldn't count on anything being allowed after January 31st, unless it's a medical waiver granted by USNA on your behalf.

    If your CFA is lacking, make use of the time given. It’s due January 31, though as others here have said, aim for mid January in case something comes up, e.g. illness, injury, bad weather.

    Rather than turn in so many CFA scores, just ask yourself. “Was that the absolute best I could do?” If not, then don’t submit that score. Best wishes to you.

    Is it due January 31 even if the rest of my application is due November 1?

    What is this "packet" or "application" of which you speak? If it is the application to USNA, the deadline is January 31st.
    Scores for SAT & ACT tests are also due on January 31st.

    If this "packet" or "application" is the stuff you need to get in to your nomination sources (Senators, Congressional District Representative, etc) in order to secure a nomination, then that's a different matter entirely. Make sure you meet those deadlines. They are different for everyone, based on State and how your Members of Congress (MOC) set up their processes.

    Here is a LINK to the USNA application process
    The Presidential nomination application is due BEFORE January 31st.
    The Vice-Presidential nomination application deadline is January 31st.

    Personal speculation, but with USAFA's rolling deadlines, @Rileighsevig may be showing a 01-Nov deadline for her USAFA application.

    That is EXACTLY what I was referring to— I was operating under the false assumption that USNA was rolling, too.
