    Hi I have been working diligently to get my application in as early as possible, and I was wondering if anyone has any advice on what I need to have done before school is up.

    especially for letters of recomendation: I have asked for my recs from math and english teachers, but when can I get more information to them?

    Also, when will the essays, (etc) part of the application become available?

    i'm just getting nervous because I want to be the most competitive applicant possible....

    The rest of the application won't be available until late August or Early September. This includes the essay and the SOE.
    Don't be nervous, you have plenty of time.
    Are you going to SLS?

    If you are at SLS then your CFA will be given then - hopefully you will show up in shape to pass. They should let you know before you leave. If you don't pass, don't worry about it, you can take it again and should do so in the early fall.
    As soon as your 6th semester transcripts are ready have your guidance counselor send them to USMA. Make sure your school officials understand this is to be done this summer and not to wait until the fall.

    You can be offered an LOA before you get your packet. Admissions can make an evaluation of your package based on your transcripts, preliminary application and interview at SLS. If you are not offered an LOA, do not despair! Keep improving your package through your senior year, notifying admissions of major accomplishments.
    Good Luck!
