If you used Loan Repayment during Active Duty, can you still get the Post 9/11 GI Bill? I received about 9K in Loan Repayment benefits while in (to pay for schooling that I had prior to signing up). in the going on 7 years now since I got out, I've gotten a Bachelor's and Master's on my own. I was thinking that I wasn't eligible for the GI Bill, since I remember expressly refusing it because I had taken LRP (Loan Repayment Program). I was wondering if someone knowledgeable in this area would tell me if I had Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits, or not. I did write the VA about this, but didn't get a response, and I believe that this board might be more responsive. The only thing I could get through their website was that I had to apply to a school first, get accepted, and then a determination would be made. This is counter to my intuition, as I want to know if I'm eligible prior to wasting my time, as the caliber of school that I can attend could change, depending on if I have to self-fund it all, or if I can utilize a benefit to supplement. I'm going to go to school more, either for a Ph.D, another Master's, additional IT certification, etc. That's decided, regardless of if my fellow taxpayers contributes or not. But, if I'm entitled to a benefit, I wouldn't mind receiving it. Thanks.
