Lots of background checks and investigations into your personal life. They needed to ensure you really wanted to be a Marine and were committed to the process. It can be intimidating at times, but you just need to be honest and know it is what you want to do.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at US Marine Corps (Hyattsville, MD) in March 2008.

    Interview

    Hiring process begins in college and depends largely on whether or not the candidate wants to pursue a commission through NROTC or Officer Candidate School

    • Grade Point Average is a major discriminator as is an applicant's disciplinary record   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation as such. You accept the commission then go to The Basic School and compete against your peers for a specific job field.
