Thanks for the tip. I'll keep checking because DH and DD would use it this summer if I could get it sooner. Do you get the card at the appointment or do they mail it to you?
Sorry JP, I missed this post. The card is mailed to you. No need for a local pickup. Good luck.

I take a good book with me and don't sweat the queues.

Thx RP. I went for my interview a few weeks ago and the card came in the mail shortly afterward. I was able to add it to my flight info since they give you the number immediately.

I thought the whole process was easy and surprisingly well run for a government program. The hardest part was scheduling the interview at a time they could take all 3 of us.
