Like I said you're better off buying bikes on CL and using the manual learn mechanics. The GI and Hazlewood is enough for 8 years of schooling. Also remember the Hazlewood is transferable to a spouse or kid.

As far as what degree to get. It all depends on what you want to do. If your only goal in life is martial arts school then go for a business operations degree, general business classes will help in your venture and forbid it fails you have a general degree to get a job on the market.

My degree plan is general studies, with the Post 9/11 GI Bill I make about $1200/month on top of my full time job. I have been taking Business Management classes for my electives.

I plan on transferring my Hazelwood to my kids. Its a good time to be a Veteran for sure

Take at least one class on campus, otherwise you will only qualify for the national average for BAH which ends up being lower for me.

I was at SanJac on the east side for a year, so I'm pretty comfortable with the campus and I'm still really close to a lot of the professors. That will probably be where I end up. However, my wife was looking at going to HCC or Lonestar. Which LS campus did you go to for the one class?

I was making about 1700 a month full time when I went. Last time I checked it was still the same. Are you full time?

I'm officially enrolled at the Cy-Fair campus which is the newest and pretty sweet layout, and that is where I took the one in person class. I started taking a class at the university campus but had to withdraw from it. The system doesn't care, you can enroll in any classes at any lonestar campus whether online or in person.

I live off 249 and If I ever want to show up in person for anything rather than email/fax forms. I go to the "university campus" in the HP complex. Another good thing about Lone star is the amount of cross over they do with universities. Sam Houston, UoH, UT and A&M work with each other to ensure credits transfer, I'm sure other junior colleges do but I can't speak for them.

Also if you're on the NW side it's worth it to look in to the UoH NW campus also located in university park. It's a satellite campus for HoH but you are still a 100% UoH student while attending classes there.

3/4 right now, I know I could get more but I am happy with where I am at

I am at a good spot of focusing my time and energy on my wife and kids, working 8-5 M to F, school, and hitting the track every few weeks.

Ahhhh yeah that's good. I'm planning on going full time and leaving my current job. The housing allowance, my VA check, and my wife's salary should be more than enough to cover life stuff. Plus, her sister just move in, so there will be her rent that makes up for the salary cut I take.

That's great to know. I'm going to pass all that on to my wife. Thanks!

It works!
