    I can't make airline reservations until I know where my DD is going, so I answered my own question. Lol. I have to wait for packet

    If you can swing a couple days off I would do the drive. Atlanta airport is 90 minutes from GMC and it's about the same for MMI.

    I'll be on campus on Monday. Feel free to stop by my lab and we can chat about the program.

    Your DD is USCG Scholars? I thought the only thing we do is get them to the Academy for July 17th report day, after that the Academy sends them to their perspective Prep School.

    Some families come to the prep school when the scholars show up. This gives them a chance to have a move in day, plus see their cadet after the Indoc period. It's not required, especially for families that have a long way to travel.

    At MMI we have a separate reporting in day for Service Academy Prep (SAP). I recommend that if you can only be here for a day or two, to show up for that day. There's inprocessing, a presentation by the President and his staff, and a reception for all the new cadets and their families. This year's SAP check-in will be on 8 August.

    Yes, but I thought we had to wait for travel orders to book flight. I read that in the handbook
