    Successful Appeal After Disqualification for Personality Disorder

    Exact same thing happened to me. I appealed it and won and now I'm a CPC. From what I remember, there's actually a higher chance for success than failure on an appeal.

    Contract Towers

    I made around $80k a year and bought a house on Cape Cod when I was working contract. Its certainly manageable as long as you aren't coming out of the military with tons of debt and are responsible with your money.
