    I turned in all of my application except CFA And transcript. My nominations paperwork are completed as well, and I'm waiting for a response or interview.
    I'm full Korean and born in Korea. I do rank in top 10% of my school and all. I believe the BGO officer said I was an excellent candidate. However, I feel like my CFA score is a bit low, but I was sick that day. (would they care that i was sick that day? I had a cold)
    Basketball throw 49ft
    Pull up: 9
    Shuttle run: I believe 9.5?
    Sit ups: above the maximum
    Push ups: above the maximum
    Mile run: 8:49 (I had a cramp) and my average time is 7:20.
    Should I take CFA again?

    They will not care that you're sick. When you pass the physical through DoDMERB, you are deemed healthy unless there's a change in your physical/medical condition that you have to update them with.
    Your numbers are OK but there's no place to note that you have a cold or a cramp when you ran.
    Above maximum does not exist or does not impress anyone. Once you hit maximum, that's it. That's all you get credit for.
    Just curious? Stating that you're full Korean and born in Korea, are you applying to the Korean academy?

    That run time is very poor (and they won't know or care if you were sick or had a cramp). Even 7:20 is not great for a male (assuming you are a guy) but your current run time is nowhere near acceptable. Most people also assume that if you get a cramp it's due to lack of fitness.
