Boot letter posted on the portal!
What does it say? Also, does everyone else see the ACCEPTED SLS candidates regard?
what do you mean by this
When I initially enter into my portal, this comes up: ACCEPTED CL2016 candidates: please check your portal for the 1st admissible mailing
(15 Feb 2012) - The 1st admissible mailing (1AM) has been posted for any ACCEPTED CL2016 candidate. This 1AM is the first of subsequent admissible mailings to be posted to your candidate portal. It contains additional information as you continue to prepare for R-day!
Do we have to buy them from an AAFES or can we go to an NEX or MCEX? You see, living in San Diego, the nearest army base is Fort Irwin (a good four hours away by car) and the nearest Marine Corps base is 20 minutes away.
Soo……what boots are you guys gonna go for? Class of 2015 any tips regarding finding a good fitting for them?? We know your out there! These are the options so far:
Bates M-8 Desert Boot (1450), desert tan in color, price is $135.00
Khyber, Mountain Hybrid Boot, desert tan in color, price is $91.25
Belleville 310, desert tan in color, price is $114.95
So any likes or dislikes regarding these boots/manufacturers??
Do a search. There have been multiple threads on boots un the past.
My DD has an appointment but there is no "boot letter" that we can see shown on the web portal. She would like to buy her boots now to start breaking them in. Based on the boot letter that you have, can you please let us know what types of boots are available to choose from for the class of 2016? Thx.
The box in the upper left-hand corner of the portal says "admissible mailings". In there is the pdf for the boot letter.
Best of Luck
Hello clamelken2 - I checked again. My DD's portal does not shows a box in the upper left-hand corner titled "admissible mailings." Perhaps this box only shows after a candidate accepts an appointment. My DD has been offered an appointment but not accepted yet (still waiting to hear from SA in Colorado). Can you please share what the letters says regarding the choices of boots available to the USMA class of 2016?
Approved boots are:
Bates M-8 Desert Boot (1450)
Khyber Mountain Hybrid Boot
All desert tan in color.
center56 - Thank you for sharing the boot information. Yesterday I inquired with the admissions office, and their response was "only candidate that have already accepted can view the boot letter."
