Growing lists of 'military friendly' colleges prompt concerns

By Published: March 30, 2012

As increasing numbers of veterans seek educational opportunities under the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill, the number of publications and websites listing "military friendly" colleges is also on the rise.

But according to a report by The Associated Press, many of those lists are flawed in their methodology and accuracy. Many experts say the wider problem is that servicemembers aren't getting the advice they need to make sound decisions on using their benefits, and businesses are stepping into that void.

Congress got involved this week when Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., introduced the "G.I. Bill Consumer Awareness Act."
