    I finalized my application several weeks ago. However, I recently became an officer of a school professional organization. I know the deadline for applications has passed, but are we still able to call our admissions counselor or talk to our ALO to have things like this updated on our application, even though its passed Feb 15th?

    Thanks!

    worth a shot

    I'm not sure if they will let you update your profile at this point, but it's definitely worth a shot to give your Academy counselor a call and ask about it.

    You can definitely update your extracurriculars. I know you could contact your counselor at the admissions office, but I'm not sure if your ALO could do it. If your ALO could, that would probably be a bit easier since you can email them and go into some detail about the new leadership role.

    They let me update it. Contact your USAFA admissions counselor and let them know. Mine allowed me to update it on 16FEB11.

    I had a similar question. My high school guidance counselor told me this week that I was chosen to be the Valedictorian of my class. Is this worth mentioning to the USAFA counselors to update my application?

    On Tuesday the 22nd, you ARE on the phone with your counselor.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. Didn't want to have to bother my counselor during the "busy season" :p if it was unnecessary.

    And congratulations Liberator45 on being Valedictorian!

    I'd email them because when I had an update-I called first and (over the phone) she told me to email her :yllol:

    I need to contact my counselor too, but her email is not posted on the application portal.

    Is there somewhere else I could find her contact info with an email? Or is there maybe a pattern to their work emails? If not, I'll just call and ask.

    DS needed to add his Jan. SAT scores to his application and paid to get them sent but low and behold they never made it to the academy. AFA told us to print them out and have his HS stamp them and sign them and overnight them to the AFA and that was done on Wednesday. His online portal still says the old SAT scores! Help! He was asked to up his verbal scores and did that by 40 point so we are hoping that got there in time! Anyone else get asked to up their SAT scores?

    Chances are the scores arrived--if they were sent overnight delivery it should be possible to track them. With all the mound of paperwork that the admissions office is dealing with lately, it may take a while to show up on your son's status page. Doesn't mean that the office hasn't updated his file/score--we learned that earlier in the year when my son sent an update in. Best thing to do is call his admissions counselor on Tuesday (guessing they will be closed tomorrow) and verify.
