    Just a quick question, my DD will want to apply to the SLE next year, but we are not sure if she is going to be able to make it, all will depend on the days, looks like they do this the last week of May and first week of June, (we are crossing fingers hoping the new year dates will be to the first 2 weeks in June,) because if is the other way around, she will not be able to try, because she will be in final exams week here in CA high schools, so my question is: if she does not apply for SLE, when will be the earlier time she can apply to WP and open her file?, I know in January is for the ones who will apply for SLE but if you cannot go because conflict in your school schedules, when will be the time to open your file and apply?, thank you, can't find this answer anywhere.

    Honestly you should just apply to SLE and see if you get accepted. Even if you are accepted don't attend, you have the advantage of opening your file early. I am from CA too and I attended the first session which was a week before my finals. All I missed was finals review, but my grades were good enough that I wasn't really stressing finals the week after SLE.

    Our DD applied to SLE and attended this past summer. She ended up changing her time attendance dates. My advice would be to apply and if accepted, then work out the details.

    Our son went in 2015 and is now a plebe. He had to take his finals a week earlier but all teachers were accommodating.

    I concur with the advice on here to apply and work it out if accepted. These summer programs (Summer Seminar at USAFA) are a great opportunity and usually it is possible to take finals early. It might be a bit more work, but well worth it. SS was the primary deciding factor me when I chose to attend USAFA.
