    I have been conditionally awarded a 2-year scholarship from AROTC. I know that all scholarship winners have to serve a total of 8 years in the Army, which I have no problem with, and the popular option is 4 AD, 4 years IRR.

    BUT .... I know that the 4 years of AD don't count toward 9/11 GI bill benefits, so could I choose to do ALL 8 years of AD such that the last 4 years do go towards my GI bill consideration?

    Thanks!

    Yes. That works. You need to do 3YRs after your initial ADSO to get the full Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, so you could serve 7yrs total as well.
