    At SLS and at past admission briefs it was said that the LOAs would be chosen today (September 1) can anyone confirm or deny?

    I would offer you this, as a headstart on your possible career as officer: analytical thinking. I don't KNOW whether or not they're being chosen today. However, applying what we do know, it's probably a smart bet that the good folks who choose LOAs are not spending the saturday of their Labor Day weekend looking at packets.

    You'll get your LOA when you get it. Or you won't.

    I am still on summer break and I did not even realize it is labor day weekend. Now I just feel silly.

    I heard that last year's LoAs were postmarked for August 31st, so while they might have made decisions at this point, they probably won't be shipped out until next week. However, this is just extremely anxious speculation, so don't take my word as law.

    The landscape has changed. There will be very, very few LOAs given and those won't come out until late fall. (There will always be exceptions, but that is the guidance from Admissions). The vast majority of offers will come in the February time frame. This puts USMA basically in step with the other Academies. Also, the window to accept or decline has been drastically reduced.
