    I have been told that I should apply to SLS around late January to early spring in my Junior year, but another person also told me that I should apply to West Point around the same time. I am a bit confused. How do people write on their applications that they went to SLS when the applications are sent to both(SLS and WP) around the same time? Is there a way for people to add more information onto their applications in the future?:confused:

    When you apply for SLS, you are opening your file to West Point at the same time just by applying to SLS. You will then continue with the application process for admissions throughout the late Spring/Summer/Fall of your JR into SR year. When you apply for SLS you will receive a candidate # and access to the Candidate Admissions Site where you will see your icons and status. Good Luck!

    Crazyboy,

    This is easier than it sounds. It's good to apply early- but USMA only opens applications when they are ready for them. So the key is to pay attention to the official sources of info (admissions webpage and facebook page) and be ready to go when they open the applications. Generally December or January for SLS, then June or July for the rest of the application.
