    I have noticed that the requirements to get into the military including Marines and Army have gotten picky with the ASVAB score when it use to be a 32 for the Marines. Are they not needing many soldiers or is it the budget cuts?? Just wondering because my friend is leaving to the Marines on April and he said that its required to get at a 50 in the ASVAB now even for the coast guard you have to get at least a 70 is this true?....

    Yes,
    The reason is due to the strong number of applicants wanting a position within the CG. We are able to be very selective and take the very best of the best.

    The minimum for the Coast Guard is 55 (or so?). However, there is a lot of competition for spots in basic training, and recruiters want the best applicants. Therefore, most recruiters require at least a 70. Get a study book. Study. And kick ass on the ASVAB.

    Also, subject titles like "????????????????" are annoying and gives readers absolutely no insight on the post.

    If 70 is the case, I met an applicant who said he scored a 56 and he was already at MEPS getting a physical. If he scored so low, why did his recruiter pass him to the next phase of processing?

    Could very well be getting him qualified with the thought process of an ASVAB retest further down the road.

    I routinely test and phys my applicants regardless of score. This gets them further along in the process and gives a good push to study harder for the ASVAB.

    Because he lied? Because his recruiter knew in previously? Because his recruiter felt that he was a hard-working, motivated young man?

    The minimum IS 50 as a part of the qualifying process. That is one of many steps that the recruiter takes to ensure that an applicant is Coast Guard material. If the recruiter feels that the applicant is strong in other fields like personality, presentation, physical condition, determination, work-ethic, etc, he may opt to push his applicant through to the next step.

    I do not understand how the one that is smart and gets good grades all through college and high school ends up scoring lower than that person who never really got good grades and is just a very difficult individual. By difficult I mean it takes them a while to catch on. I am not speaking for my self just wondering if any of you have gone through this.

    I scored very well on tests in high school, college (calculus 2!) ate my lunch and I went in to the work force as a field engineer. I met some verrrrry intelligent people out there that would never make it in a formal classroom setting, doesn't mean they weren't very bright, just better at making things happen than answer questions in a theoretical environment.

    The ASVAB is designed to test how you approach or think about a question, not necessarily if you know simple facts.
