6 G.I. JOBS | FEBRUARY 2017 | GIJOBS.COM TAP/ACAP MANAGERS NEED MAGAZINES? EMAIL COURTNEY MILLER EVERY ISSUE PUBLISHER'S NOTE Rich McCormack U.S. Navy, 4 years DEAR MILITARY STUDENTS, The value of your military service in the professional world is unquestioned and unmatched. You perform highly skilled jobs using high-tech equipment in the most challenging environments around the globe. You are a leader who works well in teams, and you're highly mission-oriented. You are a graduate of the world's premier training institution. Schools know this, which is why they compete to attract military as prospective students. You have count- less options on where you can put your military skills and benefits to work. But with thousands of choices, how do you know which school best fits your unique needs as a veteran? We've done your homework. The 2017 Military Friendly ® Schools ratings provide valuable and reliable informa- tion about which schools have the best outcomes for veterans: graduation, re- tention, job placement and loan repay- ment rates. Access to new technology now allows us to collect vast amounts of information through what we call the "three Ps": public data sources, personal feedback from student veteran surveys, and proprietary survey information. We analyze this information to identify which schools offer the best outcomes for veterans through best-in-class programs, services and culture. Our list gives you the WHOLE picture. For the first time this year we added an awards program to recognize the schools that rise above the coveted Mili- tary Friendly ® designation. This allows us to go beyond determining whether a school is Military Friendly ® . Now we also rate HOW Military Friendly ® a school is. We've listed the top 10 schools in 10 categories, so we're comparing apples to apples and giving you a choice of what kind of school to consider: large or small, public or private, community college or trade school. Whatever your career interest, you'll find the Military Friendly ® School that best fits your needs. Your military service already gives you an edge. The Military Friendly ® Schools list gives you insider informa- tion about which schools are Better for Veterans: outcomes for veteran students that exceed outcomes for non-veteran students.

Best of luck, BETTER FOR VETERANS!
