    Hi all,
    I was just accepted into SLE and was wondering what the acceptance rate is. I tried to look online but nothing comes up, any approximations?
    Also, I was offered admission to SLE today, March 15th, but it says that I need to fill out forms by March 9th. What day is it all due since March 9th has already passed?
    What is the daily schedule like at SLE?
    Can you change your workshop preferences once accepted?
    What is the food like, gross?
    How much swimming do we do during the week?
    What are the classes like?
    Answer in as much detail as possible bc I’m super excited!!!! Thanks

    Re the deadline that’s already passed, you should be taking that up with USMA directly. We can’t help you here for that one. And I wouldn’t wait another minute.

    It's hard to distinguish the acceptance rate like for SLE, but it's a very hard summer program to get into.

    In your SLE packet, there is a canned news release that your local news outlet can use should you and your parents want to let the public know of your SLE selection. You just have to plug in your name and school and you’ve got your news release.

    In it, I believe it says there were over 6000 applicants for the 1000 slots (500 per session) for SLE. That’s as close to an acceptance rate as you’ll find.

    You can not correlate SLE acceptance to academy acceptance as SLE does not require nominations and slating. Getting accepted to SLE is a good sign but is not necessarily a good predictor of the final outcome.
