    Hi Everyone!

    I have not posted in since going into 8th grade, so long time no see :)! I am now in my junior year and I am loving my high school experience.
    Recently, I pulled up West Point's Admission Timeline (http://www.westpoint.edu/admissions/Shared%20Documents/Admissions%20Timeline.pdf ) and had a few questions.
    1. I am planning on taking the ACT (and SAT) in January/February, would this affect my SLE application with no definite tests besides the PSAT?
    2. How do you contact your regional Field Force Rep?
    3. Is the Candidate Questionnaire part of the SLE application or separate? (I understand that SLE application if admitted opens up your application portal).

    I understand December is 3 month away, but I would love to know now so I can start immediately once everything opens up. Thanks so much!

    SLE only require a PSAT test score. Your WP admissions application will require your ACT/SAT test results. WP super scores your standardized tests, in other words they will take your best/highest scores.

    If you go on USMA.edu site you'll find admissions. Your should be able to find the RC who covers your area. They will lest his/her email and phone number as well as there assistants.

    I could send you a link but I want you to look for it to become familiar with the web site.

    PSATs are fine. Many Juniors have not taken ACT/SAT by December/January of their Junior year.
    If you want to PM me with your Congressional District, I can look up a FFR for you.
    It is part of the SLE application. You must fill out the CQ before you fill out the SLE application.
    The CQ actually opens up your file with the admissions department.

    Good luck!
