I have about 5.5 months left of the post 9/11 (I used most of it on my bachelor's) and I've got a question about coverage. I'm talking to my potential law school's veteran services guy and he told me that this remaining amount may or may not cover my tuition for the full academic year (assuming a semester is 4 months long). Rather, the VA will most likely pro-rate my second semester. But he also said they sometimes cover the full year. Does anyone know what factors result in full semester coverage despite not having enough time on the books? Is it political/budgetary? The cut of your jib?
Any insight would be appreciated, rah.
I asked this exact question during my transistion class last week. I was told that if you have one day left, they will pay for the entire semester, including BAH. Personally, I find the BAH portion unlikely, but would expect full tuition to be paid.
You should call the education assistance hotline and ask though, although no matter what they say, I guess there's no way to know for sure until you actually attempt to use it and see what happens.
