    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I had a question regarding the USAFA application. I accidentally did not report my parking ticket and accident that I had in May of 2015 because I thought the application only wanted arrests or convictions. So I just marked "no" and submitted. Now looking at the USNa app, I see citations and think that I may have messed up by not reporting to USAFA. It isn't something I was trying to hide or anything from USAFA, I just didn't think I had to mention it (just a fender bender and parking in a tow away zone). My USAFA application is complete and I am doing USNA's right now. I just want to know if I should contact my admissions counselor at USAFA to let him know or if it isn't a problem. Thanks for any help.

    Give your admissions counselor a call-better to be upfront about it, especially if it's a relatively minor traffic issue. If USAFA doesn't care if you report it or not, better to hear it directly from them.

    Sage advice from BK. You certainly don't want USAFA to find out about it during security clearance.

    Might want to let your ALO know, too.
