    Just a heads up, got an email saying I was accepted to SLE, so for those of you who have applied check your emails.

    Don't be too dismayed...

    An encouragement: It was a really disappointing day at our house when the SLE rejection came last year. However, DS recently received his appointment, very early in fact, to USMA, despite not being selected for SLE. So, don't let it get you down too much, if you didn't make it in. I've read many places on this forum that SLE doesn't count towards your Whole Candidate Score. Congrats to those who did make it!

    Agreed with BoLwife. Last year there was only one session of 500 and DS was wait-listed but never selected. He went to Boys State and NASS instead. He now has an appointment for the Class of 2018 and will be heading up there for his (and mine) first visit to WP later this month.

    And as stated above, even if not selected, you can really burnish your file between now and the 2019 Application deadline with improved SAT/ACT scores over what you submitted for SLE. Don't stop updating activities or awards either. Run for team captain/class president/NHS officer, etc.

    Reading this I became excited and immediately checked my candidate portal... still "PENDING". Like others have been saying I know that not being accepted is not the end of the world. A close friend of mine was denied to SLE and he now has an appointment to the class of 2019.

    Where are you able to see a candidate portal for the SLE application? Do you mean your application for class of 2018?

    In the case of my friend I meant to type he was appointed to the class of 2018 NOT 2019. In regards to the candidate portal go into yours and their is a link somewhere there on SLE. Once in there in the top right corner there is a box titled Application Status my currently says "PENDING"

    Me too!

    Hey guys. Sending in the last of my acceptance kit today. I'll be going the week of the 7th. Never been happier in my life! I've been working for this since 6th grade, so it makes all the work worthwhile. Can't wait to see you there

    I've heard there are scholarships for those accepted to SLE who cannot afford the expenses. How much does the scholarship cover?

    A lot of these depend on where you are from as they are sponsored by different WP Societies or endowments through the AOG. Different scholarships provide different amounts.

    Just got the email this week. My application was very heavily biased toward STEM and showing as much leadership as possible (3 varsity sport captain)
