You should definitely be getting some sort of BAH. It may not be the full BAH with dependents, but you should get partial - at least. Glad that a PS3 was able to assist you (Iím a PS3, too. Haha)....

I canít give you a 100% definitive answer to this because it depends on so much. But I can give you an expert opinion... The AD rate technically doesnít require an A-school (for SELRES). So, Iíd say...
