I just don't see any other way of paying for my college tuition. It took me over 4 years to get my associate degree from a community college while working and in the meantime I messed up my credit. I don't think anyone will give me a loan with a decent interest rate now so I just don't see any other option to finishing college other than the GI Bill. Please help!
Update: I think I should clarify I'm only interested in the Navy or the Coastguard
