As a student at Yale University, Air Force veteran, and mentor for Service to School, many veterans have contacted me asking for advice on how to enter a top-tier college. The benefits of college are widely known. At a top-tier school, you’ll be taught by world-renowned faculty and have access to immense resources. Moreover, you’ll attend classes and collaborate with fellow bright and vibrant students.
Members of the military transitioning back to civilian life face a bewildering array of colleges at which to use their hard-earned G.I. Bill benefits. Many claim to be “veteran friendly,” but are they?
