Will I have to retake the CFA? Would the academy ever request a retake after your deadline?

    My deadline is VERY close...
    Here were my scores from this week.

    55 ft bball throw (goal 69, max 102)
    8 pull ups (goal 12, max 18)
    9.0 shuttle run (goal 8.1, max 7.8)
    83 sit ups (goal 81, max 95)
    63 push ups (goal 62, max 75)
    5:15 mile (goal 6:29, max 5:20)

    (bonus points for guessing what sport I play, lol...)

    I only met the posted goal levels for half the events, and the maximum only for one.
    Even though I likely won't be able to retake before my deadline considering how close it is, would there be any chance that I would be asked to retake at some point?

    You are in track or cross country. If you didn't pass, then they'll ask you to retake it. If you don't hear anything in a few weeks, then assume your scores were acceptable.

    Awesome -- thanks. So it'll be a fairly speedy reply, and can come even after I've submitted everything. That's all I needed to know, great! :)

    And correct, cross country and track. We're well-known for our complete lack of any upper body strength or coordination, haha.

    From what I have seen on this forum, the candidates who initially failed the CFA were notified in only a day or two (yours might be a bit longer since it spans a weekend) and given a new deadline for retaking it. If your original deadline is about to approach, it stands to reason that the new CFA deadline would extend out past it. Maybe somebody can correct me, but it appears that candidates who need to retake the CFA have been given anywhere between 2 weeks and a month to retake it.
