    My portal just opened and I have been trying my best to fill out the forms. I have a long list of extra curricular activities I want to put on my application, but there is little to no room on the Candidate Activities Record. I am home schooled and live overseas so most of my activities do not fall under the categories that are already listed.

    Is there another place to list ones extra curricular activities?

    Thanks in advance for any information.

    MGH,

    Also,

    "Number of High School Transcripts (semesters) received". They need 6, right?

    CFA is green :D


    And last but not least... Is it just me or all I gotta fill in (as in "menus" rather than the "submenus") are 7 groups of things? (3 SOEs + CPDR + CAR + HS Transcripts + Candidate Statements?)

    On my portal it shows a green symbol next to CFA. Does anyone know if this means I passed it, or if it simply means it is on file?

    Will they fit in 'Other Activities' section - #8 on the CAR?

    Yes - through the end of your Junior year.

    It's fun to see the red turn to green!

    Your file is considered complete when all the red icons turn to green.
    Of course, you still have DoDMERB and nominations to do, but as far as your file - once the icons are green - it is complete!


    The latter - WP has received your scores and are on file.

    Yep, I know that. I am amazed, though, because I thought there were gonna be MANY more requirements. I was actually expecting a wall of red, you know. :yllol:

    Mine's still not open. I've been anxious since I'm leaving tomorrow, but I'll have a fun surprise when I come back. :biggrin:

    Just wondering. On the Portal is there a "due date" for those transcripts? Due to some circumstances my final grades may not be processed until Fall at the latest.

    The due date is the end of February 2012 which is the deadline date for the application - but I have a feeling that you will have it submitted LONG before then! :wink:

    If you have everything else complete (red icons are green) except the transcript then you will just have an incomplete file until the transcript is received.
    Even if your transcript is sent in September and that completes your file - you are still doing well in terms of getting your file completed early.
