  1. If I am understanding you right, the tier system is based on how long you served on active duty. You are eligible for 100% of the GI Bill benefits if you served at least 36 months active duty or received a Purple Heart. Here is a photo from this link: https://gibill.custhelp.va.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/947. Because Yale is a private institution, the GI Bill will not be able to cover 100% of the tuition costs. Member Serves Percentage of Maximum Benefit Payable At least 36 months or received a Purple Heart* 100% At least 30 continuous days on active duty and must be discharged due to service-connected disability 100% At least 30 months, but less than 36 months 90% At least 24 months, but less than 30 months 80% At least 18 months, but less than 24 months 70% At least 6 months, but less than 18 months 60% At least 90 days, but less than 6 months 50%
  2. Hey, So I have been accepted to the online program; starting Jan 2021 and will be using the GI Bill. I am not sure how much I can answer for you, but I'll give you everything I know haha. I am prior Navy, and I used my GI Bill for my undergrad. My husband transferred his GI Bill to me (he's active duty), so I can use that towards Yale Online. Like you said, there is a tuition cap, however Yale does participate in the Yellow Ribbon program (at least they did last year), which helps cover some of the additional costs of private education that the GI Bill doesn't cover. The amount of additional tuition the program agrees to waive via the Yellow Ribbon Program is not only school specific, but program specific. It is an agreement between the school and the VA. From my own research, I found that Yale agrees to waive $5k per veteran in the PA program that is participating in the Yellow Ribbon. I am not sure if that is per semester or per year. Nor can I confirm that Yale Online is doing the same. So while the GI Bill will cover a significant amount, I will still pay out of pocket for some of it. Speaking only from my undergrad/GI Bill experience, I fill out a form with the school's veteran office and they submit it to the VA (I don't remember if this is yearly or per semester). This form essentially states that the VA needs to pay the school directly for said year/semester via my GI Bill. I am assuming I just pay the school directly for the rest of the uncovered tuition. I am still in the process of getting all my admin stuff set up with Yale Online, so I have not reached the actual payment part (aside from the seat deposit). Please take what I have said with a grain of salt, for my cohort has not even received the final tuition cost yet. I plan on speaking with the Veteran's office at Yale Online to make sure I have all my ducks in a row as well. Again, I have no idea if anything has changed with the Yellow Ribbon program for my cohort or anything like that. This has just been my experience. Please do not hesitate to pm me if you have any other questions at all.
  3. I am prior Navy HM, so my knowledge on your specifics is close to none. However, like @LT_Oneal_PAC said, I know how long the entrance process can be. So I would recommend talking to recruiters now and get that ball rolling if you haven't already. Best, Emily
  4. haha I want to be hopeful for a little while longer, just because phone calls went out around 8-830 last round...though I know that is no solid indication of what could happen this time. If not, then like last night, no news is still good news at this point.
  5. Please don’t get upset or discouraged! I am a part of only the second interview group. And there is no set amount of “groups”. The director of admissions specifically said they look over every single application before filling the class. There are MANY people still waiting to hear about an interview invite. The staff at Yale Online has said multiple times that they are experiencing a large amount of applications this year, so they are very very busy. Please don’t count yourself out. There is SO much time still.
  6. Have a feeling it’s not happening tonight. No news is still good news!
