I recently was informed that I received a principal nomination. I am academically and medically qualified for the USAFA, however I still have to take the CFA. In my current state, I know I can do well, but I'm training to try and max it out. Should my priority be to take it now so I can have my application complete and reviewed sooner, or should I wait and get the best scores I can in a few weeks? I am under the impression that waiting will not harm my chances because I already have a principal nomination and I am not competing with other nominees in my slate anymore...but I just hope that waiting is not seen as procrastination by the academy. Another thing I feel should be taken into account is the holidays and that it might slow down over within the next few weeks... Help! Thanks in advance, everyone.
