Getting into a good college isn’t easy for anyone, let alone a veteran, who may be several years removed from academia by the time he or she is ready to apply. With thousands of students vying for each available seat, admission rates are the lowest they’ve ever been; in Fall 2013, some of the best universities had admission rates as low as 5.7 percent. But that shouldn’t stop veterans from applying. If you’re willing to work for it, you can join the ranks of the academic elite.
