I am currently a junior and wondering what the exact date I can begin the application process. I completed the questionnaire on 1-1-17 and see that I can apply for SLE on 1-17-17. Feel like I'm missing something but can't figure out what it is. Thanks for the help.

Open the link to A lot of Admission Information on USMA page and read ..... Essentially when you apply to SLE you have started the process.

Like the first poster on this thread I am wondering if I am missing a step.

I am currently a junior and per the admissions page (junior and seniors) I should be able to open my application. However when I put in my information (SS, DOB, and Grad year) it tells me I am not eligible and can only request information at this time.

I am planning on applying for SLE and would like to have the first step done prior to SLE opening later this month. DO I have that backwards? Does the first step of the application process come after applying to SLE?

Applying to SLE will create a profile for your application. However, the actual application won't open until later this summer. DD attended SLE last year and was told the application portal would open sooner for those who were at SLE, however they apparently had some glitches and the USMA application didn't open until much later compared to when USAFA & USNA applications opened. My advice is to check it regularly. I remember things opening (for SLE & other application requirements) sooner than advertised.

Good luck.

Once the SLE Portal opens, you (Class of 2020) will be able to create a resume for SLE. WP will select you for SLE based off of that resume and that resume only. The actual admissions council will evaluate a different application that you will create later in the year, specifically the beginning of your senior year. However, some information from SLE
will transfer over to your actually admissions profile/application.

Hey guys. I'm also a junior applying to USMA. I'm fairly certain that we can't open the application until March 1 of this year. Good luck everybody.

March 1 is the standard date for all juniors planning to apply. Typically, the Summer Seminars, like USMA's Summer Leaders Experience (SLE), will serve as a way to kick-off your application for an Academy appointment. The SLE application window opens on 15 Jan 2017 for the Class of 2022. You can find more details on the USMA web site. Good luck!
