    I have a few questions. I appreciate any comments or suggestions. 1) Can anyone confirm if SLS candidate's portals open earlier than the stated date on the candidate portal? I have heard that some portals will open before the stated date of July 24th for SLS candidates. 2) During the first look, is a computer screening candidates or is someone physically looking at the candidates file? 3) Any advice for competitive areas in terms of presidential and/or congressional nominations? How do you make yourself stand out amongst other amazing candidates besides continuing to raise ACT/SAT scores? Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

    I know of someone who received an LOA dated July 21, so it would seem that the SLS candidates do get an early look.
