    I just got the USMA letter saying I got into SLS. Not a bad way to start Christmas vacation :smile:. Who else is going, where are you from, and which session are you signing up for?

    Congrats!

    Are you told if you get rejected or is it just that a letter never shows up?

    If you are rejected you won't get that letter until a long time from now.

    I live in San Diego! I'm really going to have to wait for my letter (hopefully a letter of acceptance!)

    hey, to the guys who got accepted: what were your standardized test scores that got you in?

    Just quick note to those who didn't get accepted: don't sweat it. Many of those who go to SLS will not receive appointments. Many who receive appointments will not have gone to SLS.

    Keep doing your best and don't sweat it. It's one week, and it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme.

    Got my rejection today. Not too surprised since it was a 181 from my sophomore year because my school thought it would be cool to give us our Junior scores on January 25 instead of when they really got them.

    Everyone going to SLS, you will have an absolutely awesome week. It was one of the best weeks of my entire life and confirmed my every diesire to attend West Point.

    But even if you do not get accepted to SLS, do not be discouraged. This does not mean you are a poor candidate at all. In fact, what most likely happened is that the SLS program is anticipating a large number of highly competitive candidates throughout the process. I remember that last year, as the April deadline approached, more and more people began posting on here that they got in. I think SLS was just filling the spots they had held up to that point.

    Good Luck to all!

    Hey guys! Got my letter of acceptance yesterday :biggrin: Prolly gonna attend the second session, but not sure. I'm from suburbs north of Dallas.

    For whoever asked about what scores we submitted, I submitted both PSAT and SAT scores
    PSAT- 235
    Math- 80
    Reading- 80
    Writing- 75

    SAT- 2360
    Math- 770
    Reading- 800
    Writing- 790

    Then again, I only have 1 year of JV tennis on my resume, so I wasn't exactly a shoe-in. I'll see you guys there though :D
