How to Read Your Score Results

Our Air Force Academy admissions calculator is meant to be used as a tool to help you determine your level of competitiveness. The score provided is an estimate and should be treated as such. We estimate that the percentile error is +/-2%.

This Air Force Academy Admissions Calculator gives you a score out of 1000, as this is how USAFA admissions calculates the Selection Composite Score. The percentile provided is based on a study of USAFA conducted by the Government Accountability Office.

The margins are fairly small to move up in admitted candidate rankings. The main aspects you can directly control (in a fairly short period of time) that improve your score include:

  • SAT/ACT scores
  • ALO interview score
  • CFA score

Note the percentages below to strategically plan improvements. Your ALO interview is worth a significant portion of the panel score.

The following chart shows that SAT/ACT Math/Science is the single most important factor to your admission. Focusing on improving that category, if able, will have the largest impact on your admission.
