You youngins really need to start asking recruiters these questions. The Marines here aren't doctors from MEPS.
And start doing some research of your own on the site, and the internet, for medical waivers before asking questions.

Nope. And for the first time ever I agree with WM here.

Double bingo. There's a sticky at the top that explains this.

But to answer it before I lock it...


You are DQ.

No waivers for that sorta thing. Still, check with a recruiter.
