    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview Details

    I originally went to enlist with the army, but they said i didn't meet the minimum entry standards. As i was walking out of the office the USMC recruiter was standing out side and asked how i was doing. I explained what had happens in the Army's Office and he said: "Don't worry about that, come talk to me and i will work with you to get you to meet our entry standards." And he did, for three months i worked with my recruiter and he got me to where i needed to be and i enlisted. Thanks for the help and not giving up on me.

    Not really an interview. They try to talk you into working for the company. In fact, they almost lie to get you to work there. After, you sign your contract, they then take you to MEPS to see If you meet the entry requirements. Then a few days later, you are off to boot camp. Then after 3 month+- of misery. You become a boot. Then after you deploy to Iraq/Afghanistan, you become a real Marine.
