Which one would be more beneficial to attend? I would gladly attend both, however, i have school throughout June and cannot miss more than a week of school, so basically I need to pick one. I know that attending boys state is equivalent to eagle scout, which could really help me; however, I've heard from a video made by West Point themselves that of those who attend SLS, 50% receive appointments either directly to the academy or to a prep program. Which of these would better increase my chances for obtaining an appointment. By the way, I'm not already involved in boy scouts.
