I am also 100% eligible for the new GI Bill as I came in with no student loans from undergrad. Did you pay into the older one? What happens with that money?
UVA and UCLA were the exceptions, rather than the rule, and their Yellow Ribbon slots are limited to only a few slots. I believe UVA's is first come, first serve. For comparison's sake, Columbia offers an unlimited amount of $1k (with $1k VA match), and NYU (non-undergrad) nothing.http://www.gibill.va.gov/GI_Bill_info/c ... ribbon.htm
I paid $1800 into the GI Bill, including the top-off, and I haven't touched it yet. My brother (Marine) got out, did a semester on the Montgomery GI Bill at UMinn, then took a semester off and coverted to post-911. I assume they just pro-rate it.
Do officers get the GI Bill? I guess if you went OTS instead of ROTC or Academy you would...
