From what I have heard the guys discuss there is a bit of a difference between post 9/11 and GI. Most I know have gone with the post 9/11 as it pays more, hopefully someone else can chime in on that as I am not VRA and don't know much else about it.
Last i heard the list was close to 80. However the last err i heard of being selected was from a 6, there is appearany no ryme or reason to who they hire. Best bet is to just throw your name in the hat, but have a backup plan also.
That is a really good deal. Everything I've looked at is really spendy. We stopped by on Monday and I picked up some study material and we also looked around at the towns. I liked Oswego and sandwhich. My wife liked the Naperville area....LOL.
Where do most of the newcomers stay, is there a preferred apartment that's tried and true or is it just a shot in the dark. That place across the street looks like it would be cheap, and a short commute.
