    Should I rush my March SAT scores for SLE. West Point admissions posted this earlier on their page:
    "If you applied for the Summer Leader Experience, please check your candidate portals for information. All correspondence is posted to the portals. If you are still pending, there are still a few openings - we are waiting for the most recent ACT/SAT scores to make final determinations on the remaining opportunities. All candidates will be notified of status by April 15th. Thank you for your patience!'

    They also responded to a comment saying "If we just received new scores today for the SAT, and are having them sent, will they be seen in time?"
    • Yes. We are anxiously awaiting updates from many of our candidates. Thank you
    However the collegeboard site says mail delivery will take 2-4 weeks. Should I have my scores rushed or just have them regularly sent? I don't know if they will be received in time...

    Can't you just self report your scores?

    I already did but I believe they need the official scores sent in?

    Another person had a question similar to this earlier. No one was able to confirm if you have to send in your scores or if self reporting will suffice.

    If self reporting doesn't suffice, why did they even make it an option? My friend got in without sending in his scores, but he took the PSAT. For some reason, PSAT scores are listed as official even if you don't send them in. I'm not sure if his PSAT was what they used as a basis for acceptance since it was his only official score. I would guess that sending in your scores is unnecessary for SLE. If it is necessary, the person who created the portal thing did a poor job of telling its users that. They shouldn't have even made self reporting an option if it doesn't do anything....

    Don't waste the money rushing your scores! It couldn't hurt to contact your regional admissions representative with your scores in addition to updating you profile. If he or she replies saying that your official score report is needed, you tried, right?

    When I contact my regional admissions representative, how do I include my scores? Do I just state it in text or send a picture/pdf of the scores?

    I'm pretty sure stating your scores would be sufficient.

    im just going to intervene becuz obviously these other people don't know what they are talking about. yes you do need to send in your scores, and not by the bgo but by collegeboard. i dont know if rushing scores will help but last time i sent in my scores it took my about two and a half weeks. if you feel these scores are "necessary" for you to get into the sle then by all means rush it. if not (like me) just send it regularly.

    I think you can self report and then have to have the scores sent by college board starting on July 1st when the real application opens up.

    you can self report, but they will not accept it for the SLE application. they will only look at anything listed in your profile tab. trust me. i talked to them about it

    as long as your verbal and math are pretty good (lets just say 650+) then i would recommend to send it. however, if your psats were already good (200+) then i wudnt really suggest sending them in. btw, even if you do send them in, college board takes about 2 and a half weeks (my experience) so you would need to rush the scores if you wanted to send them
