Wondering if anyone has some realistic insight to how long it takes to see any actual money (BAH or Book stipend) when using the post 9/11 GI Bill. I applied on Jan 21, started school on Jan 25, and my school is absolutely hounding me for the certificate of eligibility. I called on the 888 number Tuesday and was told that I will be getting 90% and that my letter should have been sent out. Once I do get it and submit it to my school, how long am I realistically waiting for any money to show up in my account? I'm halfway done with my first class, I'm getting bills from the school that are stressing me out, and the process so far has already taken over a month, oh and I desperately need a new computer.
