    Good evening - I have searched through the forums and haven't found much information on SLE. DS applied Jan 18 and portal states pending. I believe they have started sending out those offers already so I am assuming he is not going to be able to attend. His FFR told him that a lot of the juniors admitted to SLE are from locations around the country that are further away from the Academy than we are (about 3 hour drive). He also said DS would get more out of a regular daily visit during the academic year, which we are completing later this month. Just curious if anyone has any insight to the selection process for SLE and if that affects his chances of being offered an appointment next year. Thanks :)

    There are a lot of variables that go into SLE selection that have nothing to do with an applicant's aptitude. Being denied (or accepted) to SLE does not affect the chance of being appointed next year at all.

    Just think of SLE as a recruiting poster. There is no element in the admission's process that uses SLE attendance.
