Another thing, I only have about 4 semesters worth of GI Bill left. Will they let me use the money I didn't use in the first two years towards the third year?

they don't just give you cash. they throw it off your tuition. that's why they're so lax with giving money out to people they accept.
isn't the GI Bill a specific amount of money? can't you just subtract 7k a yr from what you use, and have 21k extra so you only have to pay for 1 semester of LS?
That is what I assumed they did, I wonder if they would defer the first two years towards the last.
The old GI Bill only paid a certain amount, the new GI Bill (starting august 2001) will pay full tuition to public schools. If it is a private school they will pay up to the highest public tuition in the state, plus up to 17,000 additional.
