    Hi there. I am currently registered to go to the SLS this summer, but I have a question that I want to ask to possibly anyone here who has recently attended USMA SLS in the past.

    How much free time are you given?

    and

    How tiring/physically strainful is it, both during and after you get back?

    I ask this because of some anxiety. I have registered to take the ACT on June 13th, and will be attending the SLS from June 6 to June 12. I will arrive home the day before the test, and both my parents maintain that I will be a) too tired to do well and b) lose precious studying time the week before the test. So, I was thinking about taking some of my ACT stuff (what a nerd :rolleyes:) to SLS and possibly study at night or something before I go to bed. Would that be possible? Or is the daily schedule packed? I really, really need to do well on that ACT, and Im scared.

    Thanks!

    if west point is a top choice for you, your test scores are already good enough if you got into SLS, so you needn't worry. you do not have any free time to study. the first few days are physically tiring but by the end you should be fine. the day after you shouldn't be too tired, but you will miss out on that week of studying

    you definitely won't have any free time, but i wouldn't worry about being too tired to do well on the ACT.

    yeah you'll have maybe a half hour before bed a few nights..

    and coming from a girl who had a knee injury, who only worked out a month prior, and who went to two other summer seminars before WP, it really isn't physically tiring. it is challenging, but if you keep in good shape and have fun with the morning PT then you'll be ready for military training day... you'll be sore after that one!
