The rate you get depends more then just a GAF score. The GAF score is supposed to be how you are overall but unfortunately it just ends up being rated as of that time they wrote this DSM nexus. Look at the criteria between 30% and 50%. It's most likley in that ballpark with them more leaning towards 30%. They say you don't have to have all the quote symptoms but the people read your case and match it up. SO focus more on the symptoms and severity then the current GAF score. Least you don't have to prove stressor for service connection, cuz of your CMB. Once you prove connection, the rating is just going to be based on severity of symptoms. It won't be a case of you saw this or that and someone else didn't and they have a higher rating. Check the symptoms in 30% and 50%. SOrry to go over the same stuff multiple times. Hope this helps.

Actually the GAF is only part of the rating process. To many here get hung up on it. The GAF can change from one visit to another and is subjective. Yes it is an opinion and the opinion of someone who is not unbiased at that.
