How does grad school work for USCGA graduates? Does it count as a tour? Does the USCG pay for it, or do graduates pay out of pocket? Or do they use the GI Bill instead? Are USCGA graduates even eligible for any GI Bill benefits? Does the USCG have a say in what you will study, or are you given free reign to choose? Lastly, how does name recognition play into getting into grad school at other top tier institutions? Is it comparable to USNA/USMA/USAFA in the eyes of admissions? Lastly, does anyone have direct experience with grad school from a service academy? Feel free to share!
