    Im not saying is it easy to fill out the forms ...

    What I would like to ask is: after I submit certain forms i.e. recomendations, activities record, transcript...How difficult is it to change that?

    for example:

    I would like my whole form done by Sep. 1st for the start of the rolling admissions, However, I am currently working on my Eagle project and Definately wont finish by then. I am also expecting to get accepted into NHS this year.

    So would it be wise to fill out everything now, and then update it later as it comes along? How exactly would I update later?

    thank you in advance for taking to time to read my question

    It's not difficult at all...biggest thing is keeping your BGO informed in any changes and when you send stuff into USNA. they can help track stuff as they will see when USNA receives the required paperwork. also the BGO can make student notes in the file they have on you and this is also looked at when the board looks at your record.

    In recent years the general prudential rule has been to complete and submit your packet as early as possible then update the information as warranted throughout the year; eg, latest semester grades, any awards received, etc. The early look is becoming increasingly important to candidates, especially if they are in highly competitive states or districts - so my recommendation to candidates would be to get started now and submit as soon as you are confident that the section is complete and accurate. Best wishes to you and your peers.
