    I noticed as I was filling out my SS app/PCQ I had to leave a couple boxes unchecked because I technically have not done them in high school yet. For example, I will be a captain of both the water polo team and the swim team next year but the questionnaire only asks about up to 11th grade. Polo season is in the spring. This means that by the time I am actively serving as a captain, my application will already be complete and submitted.

    I'm not worried about the PCQ, but my application after I become a candidate (the "real" application). Will there be a chance for me to include leadership positions or other activities that I will participate in in the future?

    This is a Pre-Candidate Questionnaire. For USAFA you will be updating this information when you fill out your application. You will also be updating your activities through your Senior year.

    For SS you can only speak for what you have done

    DS updated his team captain status as soon as he found out for his senior year/spring sport and it was recently updated in his profile.

    How do you know his profile was updated to include captain of his spring sport? Was it because your USAFA counselor told you they updated his file or could you/he tell some other way? Thanks.

    Towards the end of Feb DS sent an email to add/update that he is captain of spring sport, and received an email acknowledgment that his file had been updated a few days later (3/1). He sent another email on 3/6 with an award update and received acknowledgement of file update on 3/9. He sent these via the portal email link for updates.

    Hope that helps!
    (Edit: I meant that I hope that helps you -- but I also hope that it helps DS too!)

    That's what my son did as well with regard to awards/ acheivements for football and wrestling. His counselor would acknowledge receipt of new info and the updating of his file. I just didn't know if there was some other way you knew the file was updated. Thanks for sharing. Good luck to your son!
