    Is there a way to submit a resume to USMA? I know that there is the activities record but that only includes specific activities.

    Yes, when you go into your portal, there is the subcategory of "Upload Docs" towards the top of your portal screen. You can submit a resume here, however, if not too late, your FFO Interview is really the best place to bring up your extracurricular activities that are not be explicitly stated in USMA's Candidate Activities Report.

    True that it is good to talk about your ECs that are not on your CAR during your FFR interview, but that doesn't get you any WCS points. Make sure the all your ECs are reported to WP, whether on the CAR or through an additional document.

    I just checked the upload page and the drop down box doesn't have "resume" as an option. Should I email one to admissions or just not submit one?

    There's a thread here called "Candidate score". If you search for it it'll come up. Someone posted the rubric that admissions uses to give points. What I'd do is look through that and find things that warrant points but aren't things that USMA has on your file from the documents you've submitted. What I'd do is type up a letter with those things and have your guidance counselor sign it so you could submit it to your admissions rep. An entire resume has too much fluff! Just do what needs to be done to get more points!
