    I am considering the CG once I graduate college, but I am curious about the weight requirements. I am a 5 ft 8 inche female and 118-120 lbs depending. Is that underweight for the GC? I have always been thin no matter what I do and I am very active and run every other day. Thank you.

    I'm also the same height-125 is the minimum. 120 if you were one inch shorter..

    Keep in mind your height may "vary" depending on who measures you. I went through the first 25 years of my life being 6 ft 00 in tall...I went to MEPS and now I'm 6 ft 2 in, according to all of my MEPS paperwork. (6 ft 1.5 in, rounded up)

    Changed my weight range quite a bit.

    Can your height change over the course of your career or is the height you are measured at in boot your height forever?

    I was 85lbs when I was in the enlistement process and the minimum was 100lbs. So I had to gain the weight before I could ship to basic. Now that I'm in, the minimum for my height is 97lbs. I just barely made the minimum, but if I hadn't I was going to have to go to a medical doctor to be checked over. But, they aren't doing any weight waviers to my understanding so you might just have to gain the weight like I did.
    But I've got promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep. -Robert Frost

    According to the Weight Manual "Commands shall verify height once during a member's tour."
    Chapter 2.b.4.c.(5)
