You generally want to be in good physical condition because in the corps you have to take a physical fitness test every six months. In order to enlist you have to meet the minimum requirement of doing 5 pull-ups, 60 crunches and run 1.5 miles in 11 minutes (USMC). The better shape you are in before enlisting the easier boot camp will be for you, but if you aren't in shape it will be "hell". Without doubt, Marine boot camp is more challenging both physically and mentally than the basic training programs of any of the other military services.

My schedule consisted of waking up early every day and taking a 1.5 mile run, followed by taking 500 jump shots, a similar exercise Kobe performed during his high school career. Conquering the fear of failure became an imaginary bond between Kobe and I. I knew that working hard all summer honed my physical and mental edge on the court. When tryouts came around, the odds were against me, as the team roster had been established, but I did my best Kobe impersonation and played harder than anyone else on the court. I made the team because just like Kobe, I wasn’t going to fail. This experience taught me to have fortitude, and to always strive for my dreams.
Decision-Making Process Paper Christopher Michael Bunnell MGT 230 May 13, 2013 University of Phoenix Decision-Making Process Paper There are many major decisions I have made over my life, from enlisting into the Marine Corps to buying my current home. Each major decision I have made has used most of the six stages within the decision making process, which are diagnosing the problem, generating alternative solutions, evaluating alternatives, making the choice, implementing the decision and evaluating the decision (Bateman & Snell, 2011). For example, in summer of 2006 I decided it was time to not re-enlist within the Marine Corps and to move forward within the civilian sector. This was a huge decision to make and one I thought about for a few years before making it. When I began the decision making process, the problem I had diagnosed was I no longer wished to be away from my family for long extended periods of time.

He told his father that he would "remain with him as long as he lived" and continue to fish with him.
Lance Corporal Brown enlisted into the United States Marine Corps, knowing he wanted to make his grandfather proud. Brown's grandfather was also stationed on Camp Lejeune, but that was way back in the years between 1953 and 1987 when they had an issue with water contamination. Brown could not remember the year his grandfather had been in, all he can remember is his grandfather used to tell him the water had harmful chemicals in it. A Place That Speaks To Thousands 3
When I first began my college search and how I would like to spend the next four or five years studying my goal was to move far away. I looked at various institutions, ranging from the Carolinas to Tennessee. The closest place I was really interested was two hours away from my house, The Ohio State University. When I told my parents about my college list they were very supportive; besides my father, who was not the biggest OSU fan, but he respected my decision anyway. My brother on the other hand, who was not an OSU fan either, was not that happy with my choices.
