    All it opens is more jobs. BTW don't tell anyone your ASVAB score unless they ask you. It makes you sound like a dick.

    I was talking to this girl who just joined, told me she was ineligible for the kicker because she got a 49 on her ASVAB. I was like 'oh :hsugh:'

    I don't think so. I think you get the GI Bill just for being in the Military.

    I think they mean, if you attain a certain ASVAB grade you get more of the GI Bill.

    It would prevent others from being confused if you quoted who you were talking to, especially when being vague, not that you care or anything....

    Well it's obvious that I was in response to pakman, but I'm sorry if you couldn't see that.

    Anyhow, to explain, if you get over a 50 on your asvab you get the Montgomery GI Bill Kicker which gives you like $200 extra dollars added on to your GI Bill. When I enlisted it was $273 for the Bill + $200 from the kicker. The MGIBill is basically this: The military wants you to succeed in life and so they pay for your college AND give you pay (thus the MGIB) per month just for going, to spend on whatever you want.

    Do they give you that much each month even if you are enlisted and are doing part time classes?

    I'm not sure because I would be going full time, but I would assume so. I'd research it for you, but right now I have to report to my unit and I have no idea how to get there so I have to leave a bit early in case I get lost. :)

    The reason ppl quote other ppl is so we don't have to back-track thru multiple posts. And obviously you didn't understand that I wasn't the main one who couldn't see who you were responding to.

    I've been in since 03 and I've only done 1. :eek5:

    I'd probably get promoted to E-4 if I did at least 4. But I simply don't give a shit. :sad2:
