Did any Marines here continue college after serving in the Marine Corps? If so, how did you go about doing that and how did it work out for you?

Yes I did.

Short recap on me: I went to college for four years before I enlisted, (needed a change of pace). Spent 6+ years in the Corps, then got out and headed for home.

Because I had been out of College for so long I had to reapply, but as a come-back-kid. I got accepted and talked to the Military Liaison person who handles all VA bennies for Tuition. Had to show my DD214 sign a few papers and Waa-Laa, GI Bill money started coming in. I finished my last fifteen credits and now have my Bachelors. I even have enough money left to go back to school for more follow-on education.

Just apply your Marine Corps training, not MCMAP :cool:, unless you need it, and have a good time.
