    What are the usual dates for the 3 sessions of the USAFA Summer Seminars? I have already signed up for an EF Tour in the summer of my Junior-Senior year and I'm hoping the two will not conflict incase I get accepted for the SS!
    So does anyone know when the 2011 dates were? Or recent years, just to get an idea?
    And does attending the Summer Seminar increase your chances of getting accepted into USAFA? Thanks!

    This year, the first session was May 31-June 4, second session was June 6-10, and third session was June 13-17. The dates probably won't deviate too far from that next year, because summer seminar has to be done by the time BCT starts in late June. Best of luck!

    If you get accepted, are the sessions first come, first serve?

    I believe you rank your preference for the three sessions and the Academy does its best to accommodate you.

    When my son went to SS last year, it was "first come, first served" concerning the week you chose to go. When he got his acceptance e-mail, there was an online link to go to and choose either session A, B, or C. It even showed how many spots were still open in that session. From reading online postings about this year's SS, I think it was the same way.

    And to answer your second question about helping get accepted to the AFA, the answer is no, other than it is another activity (with some leadership training and physical training aspects) and will be added in to your WCS (whole candidate score) like any other. Its really more beneficial to the attendees, as they can see a small glimpse of what life will be like at the Academy and can decide if they think its right for them or not. If you search the threads, you can see there are people who didn't get accepted to SS, but were appointed to the Academy or vice versa, went to SS but didn't get in to the Academy.
