Soldier wanting to become a USMC Sniper.
I am currently in the U.S. Army Reserve. I am about to hit my 1 year left mark with the Army. The second my contract is up, I will be signing with the USMC Active Duty.
I would love to get some more information about the Scout Sniper MOS/School. All I currently know is that it is a selective MOS out of a Infantry Company for the most part.

You don't need to go into recon to become a Scout Sniper. I'm not 100% sure of the process, but you'll need to be an Infantryman, then take the Sniper Indoc, which then you will be attached to STA platoon as a "Pig", which then you will train and deploy with your scout sniper platoon unless with your normal line unit. (don't know was it stands for) After you complete the Official USMC Scout Sniper School, you will then officially receive your Scout Sniper MOS - 0317 (used to be 8541)
Any scout snipers here, please let me know if I'm handing out any bum scoop.
Oh yeah, you'll have to go to boot camp, and you lose any rank you attained in the Army. So you'll go from SPC or SGT or whatever you were to Pfc (E-2).

There are no guarentees to a Scout Sniper "slot"....go the traditional way, 03XX (Infantry), if your Platoon Sgt feels you have a legit shot at it, he'll get you into the indoc....

The young lad is asking a question about our beloved Corps and the smart replies such as "I am goin to ****ing puke" is out of line....
First and foremost, you enter and complete boot camp as any other recruit. What ever your recruiter has told you or what you qualify for might change once you have completed your basic training. Depending on how well you do in tests that are given is of some value on what MOS you are assigned. Our son was assigned communications with his first duty station in 2nd Anglico. He repeatedly ask for "Force Recon" when he first heard of the "Brotherhood" that all Recon Marines kept talking about. Finally, he became a Recon Marine and served proudly until his death in a helicopter accident off the coast of San Diego, Calif.
Again, once you have completed boot camp, start requesting the change if you are not assigned to the unit of your choice.
