edit: I bought a few suits from JAB at the recommendation of a co-worker and I'm not that impressed. While certainly cheap (I bought them when they were doing a BOGO sale), they seem lower quality than what I'm used to. I think they're fine if you're a student or fresh employee, but I want to replace them asap.
Has anyone gotten their bar review or BAH during bar review covered? Someone told me they did, but I think they're full of shit, tbh.
You can get the bar exam and prep covered, with BAH, but not with the YRP or GI Bill. Vocrehab will cover it. If anyone has at least 10% disability from the VA they need to look into vocrehab. Though it's limited to 36 months combined with GI bill benefits, the VA can extend it to 48 months or longer. So if you used all your GI bill for undergrad this could be a way to get law school covered still. Also, if your law school is private was doesn't do yellow ribbon, vocrehab pays 100% tuition and fees regardless.
Whaaaaaaa?! For real? I guess there's an upside to breathing all this burning trash smoke, not to mention the destruction the T-38 is causing to my lower back... I hadn't ever heard of this, so I looked it up:http://www.benefits.va.gov/vocrehab/eligibility_and_entitlement.aspEligibility:
"Veterans are eligible if they:
-Have received, or will receive, a discharge that is other than dishonorable
-Have a service-connected disability rating of at least 10%, or a memorandum rating of 20% or more from the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA)
-Apply for Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) service"Basic period of Eligibility:
Date of separation from active military service, or
Date the veteran was first notified by VA of a service-connected disability rating.
Once you're deemed eligible, you have to demonstrate your Employment handicap:
Defined as an impairment of a Veteran’s ability to prepare for, obtain, or retain employment consistent with his or her abilities, aptitudes, and interests if the impairment results in substantial part from a service-connected disability. For Veterans within the 12-year basic period of eligibility and rated at 20 percent or more, a finding of employment handicap results in entitlement to Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment services.http://www.benefits.va.gov/vocrehab/program_definitions.asp"Success Stories"
