My son just completed his application and his status was changed into " complete pending review." He got a email from regional couselor said he passed the CFA but at lower side so asked if he want to retake it he will hold the application. Does he have to retake it? I read the other post if he gets a lower score he couldn't take the old score. He is really busy at school now so he is not in shape now. He said he will do it at December but I'm not sure. Is the CFA is really important? His ACT is 34(math), 33(English) and his grade is top 6/600. He is a vasity swimmer and average activity and leadership. Any opinion will be appreciated.
