    How long does it normally take to receive the follow-up package after sending in everything for SLS?

    I sent out my entire package on 26 January, and still have not received the follow-up... When should I get worried?

    I made copies of all the documents included just in case something happened, so I could send it out again.

    Thanks.

    Well I remember sending mine in early/mid-January. I received a response a little more than a week later.

    However, I live slightly more than 2 hours away from WP (I'm on Long Island), so I would assume that mail travels quicker, due to the close proximity. (I received my response the day after it was postmarked) So maybe it's possible that your follow-up would take longer, if you live farther away.
    Check your Candidate Portal, and see if you see anything referring to SLS, under the documents section, under overview. It'll show instructions, workshop descriptions, and your travel information (which you need to fill out). If that isn't up, maybe you haven't yet been processed.

    And I would say, if it hits 3 weeks, and still no response, contact USMA and see if they received your packet, and ask if you should then send your copies.

    Thanks, Nope, I haven't anything of the sort. I live not too far away either, in upstate CT...

    I'll take your advice, wait a little bit and then start contacting... I'm just glad I made all the copies!

    We sent our daughter's papers back on the 19th of January and received the follow up letter back from WP on Feb. 5th.

    I mailed my packet in Feb. 2 and am still waiting for some form of confirmation. I live in NJ only 90 minutes from WP, so if I don't hear back this week I will probably call and make sure. Just in case, I made copies as well. I strongly suggest keeping copies to anyone sending their acceptance packet in the future.
