he could get me promoted to PFC when I get to basic. Is this guy bullshitting me?
There IS a screw your buddy program, but your recruiter needs to fill the paperwork out before you actually ship out. Not when you get to basic.
I'm just finding everything they say really hard to believe now, since they all want me to lie on the medical prescreen and at MEPS
get everything in writing.
That's normal with recruiters.
I get to go to basic as PFC because I've got over 48 college credits
*edit* mine had me lie too I think its pretty normal
I knew they lied to try to get you to sign up, but I didn't think they did it after you already told them you WANT to join. So how often do recruiters and enlistees get caught lying?
I'm 2/3 done with my undergrad, but considering enlisting in the USMC. I doubt they give preference to college students
even if they do a background check for confidential or secret clearance?
You can still get points for it even after boot camp.
if your recruiter files the paperwork. which in all probablity he won't
what did they want you to hide in the medical presceens?
"does it have a huge scar? if not, say no. do you think it's going to kill you? if not, say no"
Refer as in collecting the referral bonus?
Your recruiter was not bullshitting you.
Yeah, I don't know why people are saying BS.
It is true. I know a few that got PFC that way.
Don't do it. Let him do his own work. If your not a retard, you shouldn't make PFC by the time you have a year in service.
I attained it that way. Like everyone here has said, make sure the form (you'll end up with two) is signed by the recruiter, the recruit, and yourself. Make sure it is in your paperwork portfolio before you leave for MEPS.
You have to refer 2 people who enlist and ship to bootcamp for them to give you PFC. They will also give you meritorious PFC if you have more than 12 college credits. Your recruiter has to put it in your paper work before bootcamp, this includes the marine corps, I'm a marine and thats how I got PFC.
Well, I already know a few people that are interested in joining the Marine Corps, so it's not like I'm going to go door to door telling people about the spectacular benefits of becoming a US Marine. I might as well get promoted and receive a better pay grade much earlier.
Thanks for all the info everyone
