I have been treated well by the CO's as long as you follow the rules it should be as good as can be expected given it's shu.
My man had a major medical issue and even in shu they treated him in a humane manner and did their jobs.

If you e-mail,stay any available time or you will not get a visit if the time you request isn't available.You can say prefer earlier or later in his time slot though you may not get it.
4B is mornings on Sat. and afternoons on Sunday.Wish that were reversed but oh well.
Around the holidays can get pretty busy but otherwise it's not bad at all.
You have to be sure the e-mail is after 6 a.m. since if it is one second befre that,your out of luck.
They should e-mail you back by Wed. and if the e-mail fails,you can phone
for a visit.Calling is super frustrating and can take many calls and hang up-s before you speak to an actual person though once you get through they are nice.

Welcome to Corcoran shu

Go to J-pay and it is easy to do it from there.That is how I do anyway.
If you don't have a regular bank account you can buy a blue-bird card for five dollars,add cash at Wal-Mart (no charge to add cash to card) and then apply online for the regular Blue-Bird "credit-card" (no additional fee).I have not used this card for J-Pay payments but figure it would proably work once you get your card they mail you after you fill out the online information.
Perhaps the other ladies could tell you for sure if a Blue-Bird card is acceptable for J-pay.

What do most ladies wear when visiting? I was just denied entry to Corcoran bcs I wore black skinny jeans as well as my teen daughter. They said the jeans were form fitting even though we both wore baggy sweaters that went below our bottoms. Looking arround I did notice a lot ladies of sweats?

I wear pants that are not too tight (although that was shaky for a while before I lost weight bc ALL my pants had gotten tight!). I saw a family get denied yesterday because the teen son was wearing button fly jeans, and they kept making the metal detectors go off. I had never thought of that, and I added it to my mental list of things to never wear. I try to wear bright colors just because I imagine the guys get sick of seeing their ladies show up in black all the time, haha, colors like pink and purple. Colorful sweatsuits look nice. No prison orange outfits, blue denim, sleeveless anything, nothing above the knees, no colors similar to the olive-green that the guards wear, no khaki, etc. Basically, if you look hecka cute in it, it's probably not ok to wear, haha!

They're seriously not unreasonable compared to Delano-- now THAT place sucked. Down there they were definitely picking on one particular race when they turned lots of women away for dress issues. At Corcoran, basically if you just dress appropriately and follow the rules, they won't come after you.

Yep,that is about it though make sure your clothing isn't "see through" at all,even in the shoulder strap /bra area.
Of course no underwire bras.
They do allow some"killer heels" and cute finger nail polish or decals.
I agree with the color thing,especially if you loved one is in shu.They seldom see colors and fancy stuff.I even wear jewlery,which I almost never do in my day to day lifeNo piercings though,except one set of earrings.
Not so much on the shoes since he doesn't see much below the top area.Good thing I have big "ladies"
