I can't really speak from experience since I'm just a junior right now, but I've done a lot of research into the topic and have done alot of comparing between my current scores and those of people who have LOA/appointment so I'm not sure if you've already seen them but there are several good threads out there on this one in particular is
Right now my scores are (Male)
BBall throw: 71 ft
Pullups: 4 (I struggle so much with dead hangs)
Shuttle-run: 9.8(not really sure haven't done this in awhile?)
Mile run: 7:00
Lc06 you passed but you want to try and get your bball throw in the 70 to 80 range. You did the minimum for the pullups, shuttle run could be a tad bit better situps are great, pushups you should shoot for at least 50 and the mile is ok
excellent, so I take it I don't have to worry about anything as long as I can get my pull ups to around 8?
Is CFA pass or fail, or do you get certain amount of points if you barely pass as opposed to maxing everything? I've heard both answers and am not sure what to think, I believe USAFA has just pass or fail, what about USMA?
Below is a simple chart of the 100-point (maximum score) score for each of the events for the CFA, with the exception of the Pull-up/Flexed Arm Hang events. Please feel free to reference it to both practice and prepare for these events, and also so you will know what to expect when you arrive for the CFA.
Score BB Throw Pull-Up S. Run M. Sit-Ups Push-Ups 1-Mile Run
Male 100 102 feet 18 reps 7.8 sec. 95 reps 75 reps 5:20 min.
Female 100 66 feet 7 reps 8.6 sec. 95 reps 50 reps 6:00 min.
"Does anyone have a list of the minimum requirements?"
According to one of the WP field force officers on prosective.net, it is unlikely that published CFA "minimums" like there were with the old PAE will be made available. "Unfortunately, the perception was that published
minimums for the PAE only led to cheating by candidates who were not meeting the minimums, resulting in West Point accepting candidates who were unprepared for the rigors of CBT."
If it is 'pass or fail' then why is there a a certain amount that earns you a score of 100? This is contradicting as if you pass it shouldn't matter to what degree(80, 95, 100) you passed as long as you passed. Unless however you can fail in one event but max out in another event thus receiving 100 points and it making up for the event you failed in allowing you to pass overall.
I agree that candidates should not strive to just meet the minimums, and that is why I also believe that USMA shouldn't release info. like that, I'm just trying to figure out how it all works.
