If I Exhaust My Current GI Bill, Can I Then Use the Post 9/11 GI Bill?
Q: I’m currently in the MT ARNG and on my second deployment to Iraq. I have 3 months remaining on my 1607 GI Bill. When I use the remaining 3 months of my GI Bill will I be able to use my Post 9/11 GI Bill? If so how many months do I have on the Post 9/11 GI Bill. 2. I’m planning on taking the GMAT to apply for a MBA graduate program. I want to purchase study guides for the test. Is there any type of discounts I can receive being in the military for study guide materials?
A: With two tours to Iraq, assuming each was one-year long, you should be at the 80% tier for the Post 9/11 GI Bill. To switch to the Post 9/11 GI Bill and get your additional 12 months of entitlements, go to the VONAPP website and fill out VA Form 22-1990. You’ll get back a Certificate of Eligibility that you’ll need when you register for school as a GI Bill student.
You mentioned the GMAT. One of the highlights of the GI Bill 2.0 is the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, SAT and ACT, will be covered under the Post 9/11 GI Bill for veterans who need to take them to get into college or into certain programs.
As far as getting a military discount, I imagine there is somewhere you can get a discount, but from my experience you can get much of the study material between free and $25.00 Use a search engine and look for “GMAT Study Guide”. It will bring up quite a list of possible places to get what you want.
