    I somehow managed after reading over that part of the application like 5 times forgot to add that I created and manage a small lawn business! I dont know how i forgot and I feel like this kinda important! So can I just call the admissions office tomorrow and tell them and will they allow me to update it?

    E-mail your regional director all the information you need updated. Be polite, and patient - they might take a while if you're in a busy area.

    I doubt it, seems to me it's good to add things. If this happened a year ago or something, you might want to wait until you have something else to add, so it seems an afterthought. But if this is what you're doing over the summer, definitely let them know. I've updated my own several times already, my RD and staff has been great to me.

    sjbd94,

    As JttAirliner mentioned, email the RD and request to add this to your file.
    Of note, I recommend explaining in a few sentence (1-3) about your role and define how you "manage" this operation.

    During DS process he had to change his activities many times -he had no problem all he did was email BGO and copy Regional they added it every time. During your senior year if you are Captain of a State Championship team or class rank changes or you receive Eagle / Gold Rank in scouting these are very important to your resume. Don't hesitate to email the updates they are more than happy to get it in for you. BEST OF LUCK.
