Do you need teacher rec's and transcripts for the sls app?
No recommendations, but I am not 100% sure on the transcript. I believe it is no for them both. What they look at is PSAT, SAT scores and your class rank.
While I don't think you have to send in your transcript, I sent mine in anyway when I filled out my SLS application because that gives your file some basis of a transcript, even if it is only 5 semesters worth of grades.
The SLS application is all self-reported info. But don't make up anything, because that will only bite you later.
When does the application for SLS open up? I thought it was tomorrow (Dec 1st) but the admissions site just says "Mid-December"
It was the 14th last year so my guess is around that date.
The USMA admissions facebook page says that SLS apps will open up AROUND 15 December this year, so start checking the usma website a few days before the 15th to catch it as soon as it opens up.
Do you need to have a candidate ID prior to applying to SLS? The SLS info page says that the questionnaire provides you with such an ID, although the only receipt I received from the questionnaire was a generic one without any new information.
When you apply for SLS, you also set up your Candidate file with West Point. They'll assign you a Candidate ID during the SLS app process.
