    Hello, I was wondering what you guys that my chances are for a scholarship from the United States Marine Corp. I understand that it's impossible for you to actually give me a percentage, but a good or bad chance will do as an answer.

    No sports... but I'm likely running track this spring

    Why I want to join the Marine Corp (I'm sure they ask the question):

    For me, General James Amos summed it up quite well in a presentation given to CSIS during the height of fear about the looming fiscal cliff. Many security analysts were questioning what the United States military would do to it's structure if the budget was gutted.

    In this presentation, Amos talks about how each branch has a principle domain upon which it operates in. The Army operates on land, the Navy on sea, and the Air Force in the air. The Marine Corp, on the other hand, has no specialized domain. Instead, they engage and neutralize any threat on the global scene that undermines the integrity of the security of the United States. The domain they operate in is dictated by domain in which the threat lies. Unlike the other branches, they can operate on all planes to combat an enemy force. And in a world where threats exist on all domains, the Marines too operate on all these domains as well.

    This is why I love the Marine Corp, they are the embodiment of international darwinism, where the most adaptive country will not only survive challenges to its status, but prosper despite of them as well. The Marine Corp is our adaptive force, capable of meeting the requirements assigned to it by the Federal government

    I'm not really the type of person who can give chances seeing as I haven't gone through the process yet, but I think you'd have a higher chance of getting the scholarship if you spell "Corps" right in your essay.
