So, I've searched the internet high and low and can not find anything on DLI graduates that got out and went on to a university. Has anyone graduated from DLI here and carried on their credits to a university? Mainly, where are you going? How much of it did they accept?
Here's my situation: I was an idiot in high school. I think I may have had around a 2.0 by the time I graduated. I joined the Marine Corps right away. My first enlistment I was an avionics technician. My second enlistment I lat moved to become a linguist. I went to DLI for Arabic and left with a 3.4 GPA and graduated with honors earning a 2+/2+/2 on the DLPT 5. To go with my resume I am currently a SSgt and hold a Top Secret/ Special Compartmentalized Information security clearance. By the time I get out I would have spent 10 years in. I have held numerous billets leading Marines and so forth. Understandably a 3.4 GPA isn't extremely notable to the average Joe coming out of high school or a CC. But, a 3.4 GPA in a rigorous Arabic program while also being a Marine and being a Platoon Commander in charge of 30 some odd Marines (making sure every single one of their needs is taken care of) isn't as easy as it seems to accomplish. Do the universities recognize this? What sort of Universities should I aim for? There are numerous colleges now using the Yellow Ribbon Program ultimately leaving you with a balance of 0 at the end of the day such as George Washington University, Georgetown University, American University, etc.
I'm looking for any DLI graduates input, and also some other vets out there who might have some advice for me.
Side note: I see that most universities don't require an SAT score if you've been out of high school for more than 5 years. Should I take it anyway to just try and beef up the application? Or, is it really just not weighed as heavy as one would think?
