FAQ

What paperwork do Marine recruits have to fill out?
Hey Allison Choi. First thank you for the question. Any applicant looking to enlist into the Marines would complete whats called an enlistment package. Now there is a lot that goes into that package. Anything from police history, medical history, as well as various policies that the Marine Corps has to include policies on drugs, gang affiliation, our Core Values (Honor, Courage, Commitment), etc. I hope this answers your question a little bit. I just got off of recruiting a couple months ago.
Does a marine on deployment have to fill a form out?
As an 0331 I was pointed in the right direction and deployed. No forms, had more shots in 2 days than I ever thought possible. Flew from LAX to Hawaii to Okinawa then LPD 9 USS Denver to Da Nang. As a PFC at the time no forms I can recall. Made out my will in Boot Camp. No Visa, no port entry inspection, Just grab your gear and go. During my 18 months in South East Asia I deployed 6 different times from Vietnam, Okinawa and the Philippines. No paperwork involved on my part. Probably why they didn’t know where I was for 3 month’s in 1971. I found this out when I was approved for Agent Orange benefits in 2014. I told them. Back then it was an office pogue that typed out your military record on a remington typewriter, hard copy using the sneaker net. So stuff got misplaced or just not done. Who Knows, at least I got my orders to cross the pond and 45 days payed vacation at home. So the important stuff was done. Still didn’t do paperwork to stand down and go home.
How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.

If a marine is on a special mission or secret mission, do they have to pay for a flight home, and what is the form to fill out?
If a real Marine was on a real secret mission, he wouldn’t be telling you that he was.
Why does my Marine recruiter seem so desperate? Why do the marines seem to accept anyone who fills out the application?
This entire question seems like a humblebrag.  It's OK though, I'll bite.The ASVAB isn't a "mental test", unless it's a test to weed out the mentally deficient. And muscularity doesn't mean anything.  Either way,  I doubt the recruiter is desperate, but for every person he gets shipped off to Quantico or MCRD, several others flake or disappear.  The fact that you took thr ASVAB and are talking to him tells him that you're interested, so he's going to do his job with with the aggressiveness and enthusiasm so often displayed by Marines.
