    Just received an email from admissions saying I should be receiving my Permit to Report package in the mail shortly. Has anyone received theirs?

    DD received hers yesterday (4/07) as well. It is in a large Manila envelope that barely fit in the mailbox.

    Though it may not seem like it, the earlier the better...

    I agree Vista123

    Early times are the best. My DS had a 6:30am report time. He arrived just before 6:00am for processing. 2 hours later he was in the first group to finish processing. This allowed him to set up his room, eat lunch, and spend the rest of the day folding his socks (they have to smile). After the Induction Ceremony he was not starving for something eat...instead he enjoyed the 40-45 minutes with family and friends.

    Victoria got hers Saturday (we are in St. Louis)

    Her report time is 0730.

    So fun to watch her rip open the envelope!

    I agree, an earlier report time is better. My DS didn't report until 0900. The whole day was very rushed for him. I don't think he had much time to eat, and very little time to get settled in to his room. It was also very rushed for us. Looking back, I wish we had gone to the yard the day before to explore and hit up the mid store. Instead, we tried to tour the yard, go to the museum, the alumni picnic, presentations, etc all in one day (we don't expect to be able to visit Annapolis often). It was absolutely exhausting, and then we stood in line at the end of the day for 1 1/2 hours waiting to get on a bus back to the stadium. Some people just walked, but I simply could not walk any more!

    son's report time 9:30. Not Good! No, Not good at all.

    He had no problems with in processing (IE dodmerb) but by late in the day the lines are just simply backed up. He couldn't make himself eat before hand and never got anything to eat at all during Iday because he was so far behind-so STARVED by picnic after swearing in. (parents bring food and water and lots of it to after the swearing in!) He was so behind that by the Oath of office he had never met his roommates, hadn't been to his room, didnt know where his stuff was (IE wallet). It just added a layer of stress to a very stressful day.

    Luckily one roommate who was a prior, got there the day before and while DS was inprocessing he made all DS socks smile, etc. and generally helped ds 'catch up' (thank goodness for Priors and NAPS kids!!!)

    However, an earlier report time gives you some time to get your stuff together. If you dont have that block of time it can take wks to catch up because you no longer have any time until the following Sunday....and for goodness sake...whatever you do...don't try to stay up after 'lights out' catching up!!!!!!!! Big Trouble!

    Dont stress about it though..."In the end it will be fine." ...Iday is the beginning, not the end.

    Can any current mids or parents give me a recommendation on what to wear to I-Day and what to bring besides the required forms? Thanks!

    As far as the medical section of the PTR (and Iday for that matter) goes, how do waived medical complications work (I got approved through DODMERB but my eyes are only 20/60)?

    When you show up they will take you in, Good Luck. DD had early but was in line really early and ushered in as soon as she got there. They will take you as they come. DD wore shorts and T-Shirt. It will be hot and a long day. Priors are great for any Company.

    The time you got is the time you got...

    even though you mean well, there is no further point in stressing these kids out more by telling them they should have an earlier report time. There is NOTHING they can do about it!! I will NOT tell my son what you said, as what is the point of that! It is what it is and they will do the darn best they can. Why start the day bumming because you got a 9am report time instead of a 6 am report time.

    Sorry....I just had to say something....there are lots of young men and women reading these posts ready to embark on this new and wonderful adventure, with things in their control and many things out of their control.

    I look at it as a few more hours to spend with the family and to fill him up with a good breakfast so he is ready to seize the day!

    1. Last yr they did not let kids in early (that doesn't mean they haven't in the past or they won't in the future. Last year they were ver clear on your report time is your report time.

    2. Son wore khaki shorts and a BlackHawks (hockey) tshirt. He said the only positive of IDay was wearing that shirt because alot of random hockey fans (mostly civilian employees working Iday) commented good/bad about the Bkackhawks and it took his mind off the rest of the nonsense -even if it was just for a second or two. And other plebes in line who were also trying out for the hockey team approached/chatted with him.

    Sorry. Didn't mean to stress anybody out. We were actually trying to encourage those with early report times.

    Thanks! And it's all helpful advice, but as I was reading it I couldn't help feel badly for those who seem to be "unfortunate" with a later time.

    THANK YOU futuremarinemom!
