    DD has been nominated by her high school faculty for this year's Daughters of the American Revolution ("DAR") award. She is one of six nominees in a graduating class of ~400. With her various applications completed and pending review by USNA and MOC noms, is it worth updating things on all fronts to reflect that nomination, or is it better to wait for a critical mass of new data (e.g., 1st semester grades, Fall sport varsity letter) to do that?

    No real benefit in waiting, possible benefit in updating immediately. It is rolling admissions after all.

    Might as well send it up.

    Is it worth updating just for being nominated? I was also nominated but I don't think I'm going to worry about informing them unless I actually receive the award.

    I would be inclined to hold off on updating until you know the results; ie, if you win then report that you won, if not report that you were one of X nominees for the honor.

    If you want to submit new information that is school related, you MUST get your school counselor to endorse the submission, o/w USNA won't consider it.

    If it is an activity outside of school, you can try to get the counselor to endorse it as well. If he/she can't or won't, send objective proof of the honor or award (i.e., certificate, letter, etc.).

    These items are typically sent via snail mail.

    This makes sense. Thanks for the guidance.
