    Is there a way to update the AFA Candidate Activities Record if I have already sent it in? Do I fax them the info of my senior year activities or is there another way to update it?

    Two wonderful ways to do this:

    1. CALL (follow-up with e-mail) your counselor at USAFA and tell them. They'll take the information and quite possibly update your file instantly. They may ask for information, etc., but these folks are incredible! They work with SO many students...and do an amazing job!!! FIRST LINE OF ASSISTANCE at USAFA that you can directly contact. Just don't be surprised if you get their voice mail.

    2. Contact your ALO and tell them! They can also help get the information up to USAFA.

    The bottom line though is this: DO NOT WAIT if you have something that you want to "include/add/update." Send it up!!!

    My son's counselor requested that the information be faxed to his attention with my son's name and SSN on the header.

    Do these scenarios have the same result?

    -Submitting CAR now and then submitting CFA on 9/24 for 100% file completeness while updating CAR

    -Submitting CAR on 9/24 along with CFA for 100% file completeness

    The latter seems more convenient, and both files will be 100% complete on the same date.

    Either will work; I would tell you to complete each section WHEN YOU ARE READY and both comfortable and confident that you have done your best.

    CAR's can always be "updated" along the way, but having everything done is a good thing.

    DO NOT RUSH the CFA!!!
