    Hi all,

    I know I passed my CFA when I took it at the Naval Academy summer seminar, but I'm seeking advice as to whether I should retake it or not to make myself more competitive for an appointment to USMMA. My scores:

    Basketball Throw- 48 ft.
    Pull-Ups- 35 second hang
    Shuttle- 9.5 seconds
    Crunches- 95
    Push-Ups- 38
    Mile- 7:20

    I know pull ups have more weight than the arm hang, but I've also been told that I will be fine with the score I have now. Thoughts?

    I know nothing about USMMA. But I do know that for USMA, USAFA and USNA, one pull-up is worth more than hanging for eternity. Just my opinion, but regardless of what USNA told me, I’d redo the CFA and try for the average pull-up score — two — while trying to improve everything else too.

    Your scores are definitely fine for USMMA.
