Hello all. I am a 19 year old sophomore in college and recently a USMC recruiter approached me and we started talking about enlisting. The problem is that I already tried joining the Marines and everyother US military branch my Senior year of high school. I even went through like 3 different Army Recruiters. The thing is I was born with an ear deformity and as a result I have bad hearing on my left ear, but it has never been a problem. The last time I tried to enlist, which was a few years ago I was told I had a permantently disqualifying condition or something. I tried to get waivers, wrote to my congressmen and all that, but I was pretty much told I couldnt get in. I told the Marine Sgt. trying to recruit me all this but he says he still wants to give it a shot. My question is how likely am I to get in? I really doubt anything will come of this but who knows, maybe things have changed since they have been struggling to meet enslistment requirements. So has anyone here gotten a waiver for hearing loss or anything similar? Or any new enlistees found them to be a little more lenient on the requirements? Although I am doing well in school I would leave to basic tomorow if they would let me, serving has been something I always wanted to do. So any help or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
