I know that you aren't allowed to have OTC meds during plebe summer. Do things like body lotion count as "OTC"? What I mean is, will you be allowed to bring your own lotion/shampoo/hygiene products, or is that strictly monitored too?
I-day you show up with id and your permit to report paperwork (there will be a list in your packet). Everything from your "former" life is taken from you and put away. You can have items sent in care packages. If it is "allowed" you will get to keep it, if not it will be taken away until the end of plebe summer. My understanding is that some things are company specific. I did send lotion, deodorant, face wipes, baby wipes, etc. My plebe was allowed to keep all items sent.
