So long story. USMA has always been my dream school. I can go into it for hours. Goal is to commission as an officer. Been building an application for years for it. Gotten leadership positions form Pres of Student Body, to Beta, to other honor societies and clubs, one of top ranked in AFJROTC, tons of comm. service and connections, tri-athlete. Roughly @ 15% of my class so top fifth. I can attach a resume if anyone wants to see. Always planned on becoming an Army Officer so have worked hard for everything. I know this next part is going to seem bad, I had always struggled with the SAT. I studied however I completely bombed the first time around to where I wasn't even at a score that a recruited athlete with poor academics would have. So my chances were dimminshed. Nevertheless i did work hard and to my surprise, my scores went way up to where I may be competitive now. God pulled a miracle and brought me up to a 1300 for the new SAT, a crazy boost. Now to the point and what'll make me look bad, I didn't give up however I ignored my PT over the last couple months and got way out of shape. I wrestle in the winter and get great PT scores during the season but that's putting my body through a rigorous program. Now I want to get my application in early for early decision. I know when they need to be in as the deadline. But all this said this brings me to my questions. One, is it a rolling board like AROTC, how does it work, for the best chance what date should I have my app with the CFA submitted? Also can I submit application early without CFA, have more time to train, add the CFA later without it moving where I am in the pile? Also most importantly, can anyone recommend a diet/workout routine that I can do for the next few months to train for a great CFA? I'm willing to put in the work, just need some guidance on the best route. Not afraid to push myself with it, I've even got some crazy stories of losing +8lbs in less than 24 hours on multiple occasions for wrestling. Would love to hear input on what to do to get numbers up drastically over a few months. Thanks for reading. All apologies for making this so long. Take care and have a nice day!
