It has been a long time since I went through Voc Rehab, but it was quick( within 2 weeks) once I was found eligible. You also need to talk to a counselor at the Tech School that knows about the VA programs in case they drag their feet on payment to the School, also take any papers from the school to show your starting date and hourly count to your VA appointment.
Voc Rehab is the best program going IMO, I wasn't even allowed to buy a pencil....I would just go get what I needed at the book store and sign a receipt. Keep your grades in check and your enrollment up to date along with appointments with the VA Rehab.......things go smooth, or at least they used to.

I have been to the testing I meet with my counselor on the 17th. If I have my class schedule and all that from school I am wondering what's next and how long does it take for you sub allowance to start after u start school. I start on the 22nd. We will be doing my plan on wed. If I need a camera will the get it and a cp for me. How is that covered. they dont give you much info. they are very vague here.

Shouldn't take too much longer.. Make sure you apply for the Post 911 too, because this August you will have the choice of picking the better pay of the two. You only need them to say you qualify.
how do you know which one you've applied for. my ap just said voc rehab.

Being eligible means you fit the disability rating and assessment necessary to get into a program. The entitlement is the payment that starts after you begin school. The camera & computer are again, up to the VR&E office you are going through. Some are very liberal, I heard of a Veteran getting a Mac from one, and I have heard VR&E counselors say No to computer requests. If your schooling requires a computer & a camera, you are probably not going to have any problem.
Maybe you should hold off some of your questions for the 17th when you meet with your counselor, because we can all give you guesstimates, but those are just guesses.
Good luck with your program

was scheduled for an appintment the 2nd but got the letter on the 6th
had my orientation on the 17th and was found to be entitled due to me not working since 2006
registered for school on the 17th and got my acceptance letter...
on the 18th today took my reg info to my counselor and he gave me the doc authorizing payment of all books tuition and every thing else I needed.
He also told me I will get my sustinance to help with cost and I am entitled to any medical dental and optical i need.
this has been my timeline so far. i will let you know when i get my first sustinance check. it takes like 3 weeks to get travel pay from coming to voc hab apts I can tell you that.
