btw. I'm 164/3.05 IL ANG, never deployed, though. But I received a 78k scholarship from SMU, and in my acceptance letter, they specifically highlighted my service as something that impressed them. I wasn't even sure if I would be accepted, but after I got in with so much money, I think it was largely due to my military experience.
Other than that, in at UIUC with small scholarship. These are the only two acceptances that I feel could be somewhat attributed to my service...every other acceptance/$ is pretty much in-line with my numbers. Kinda wish I had deployed now. I didn't go on the first one, cuz I wanted to get through school, and I didn't go on the second one because I wanted to study for the LSAT...I would have literally deployed the week I took the test. If I had gone, I would have some extra money stashed, but the real boon would be the Illinois Vets Grant. I would have been able to go to UIUC for free, now it looks like I'll have to pay damn near sticker.
Edit: I have never deployed to a combat zone. I've gone on other short, stupid trips sometimes called "deployments", but no where that looks impressive or nets me any sort of benefit.
