"How long does it take to get GI bill started?"

In the past, it took about two months.


Ish, if you already know which school you will attend, the school can do paperwork so that you can have the lump sum of the tuition deducted from you total. In effect, they loan you the money, then you don't get the monthly check until that money is "paid back." Then, the regular monthly checks kick in. Look into this, it may be helpful.
