Sounds somewhat similiar to my C&P results. I received

Based on this I would think probably 70% but there are no guarantees until you get the award letter.That being said this was very similar to what my C&P exam stated except I was given a slightly lower GAF score...Good luck and I hope it comes out good for you.........................Grid

I would go 70 also, depending on the rater it could possibly be higher.

The neglect of appearance and hygiene could be a competency issue later though. Quite possibly if the rater goes 100 % that issue will be broached. A lower GAF is more serious. Although the 100 would be nice for you, stay away from the competency issue.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
