    Okay I have two questions. Firstly, what years can it include? And secondly, how many pages can it be?

    I agree - my son did this last year and you had as much space as you needed and it asked you to only include information from high school. Just for reference, WP and Navy SS applications were very different and were more check box with only limited space to add comments.

    Take some time and list everything you've done, and all honors received. Use the categories they give you (academics, athletics, service, etc.)
    Creating this document was one of the most valuable things my son did in the college search. I cannot tell you haw many times he used this resume to cut and paste info on various applications (ROTC, SA, Common App., congressional nomination packets) Save the document and update it with each new achievement. It will prove very useful.

    For Summer Seminar...

    Start from the "first day" of 9th grade...and list EVERYTHING!!!! As folks have already said here, put it down! EVERYTHING is scored.

    The folks on this board are very good!

    I wonder how come you can list whole high school from 9th grade activities on service academy related applications but they only want you to list 10th and above activities on ROTC applications?

    Actually for summer seminar they asked from 9th grade on, but when it came time for the actual application for the academies, it was from 10th grade up.

    I'm probably getting AF and Navy confused but I know at least one it just stored what he'd put in for SS, and spit it back out for him to update once he was an actual candidate, but the whole 9th grade column was removed.
