I was just wondering how easy or is it fairly easy to get a medical waiver approved??
Say you cant complete one of the 22 manuevers at MEPS, would a waiver more than likely get approved?

I forget the exact type of waiver, but its for a manuever that i cannot complete
its where you are on your kness and you have to tuk your feet under and rise to the standng position.

If it is a medical condition involving your lower extremities preventing you from doing this then you will need a waiver. Depending on the extent of the condition determines whether or not a waiver is approved.
Is this a medical condition or is it physical weakness preventing you from going from this position to upright?

This is not my line of expertise but I have never heard of getting a waiver for a physical weakness.
As of today you need to forget the word CAN'T.... that and FAILURE are not words in the Marine Corps dictionary.

If there is a physical condition preventing this then you need to have medical documentation to give to your recruiter so that he/she can send a waiver package to MEPS.
If this is a matter of strength training then you need to start doing leg squats,lifts and leg presses to strengthen those muscles.There a posts in the Poolee Forum for exercises to help prepare you for boot camp.
