I had just received this information last evening. Since the information is new, I went ahead and called to get a hotel reservation. I had heard that sometimes it is difficult to get one. Even though our son has only received an LOA and not an actual appointment (still waiting on a medical waiver for USMA - has a waiver approved for ROTC scholarship), we thought that it is better to have a room already reserved. I thought that it might be good advice to pass on - something I hadn't considered until another parent passed it on to me.
