For the past couple years, since I made the decision that I wanted to join the Corps, my primary concern was to get my degree finished. Now that my degree is in hand, I have one concern: get into shape to pass the PFT. Here's what I look like "before" getting into shape.

Step 2 - Diploma

According to officer.marines.com, to be considered as an officer candidate, a person must meet the following qualifications:
• U.S. citizen;
• 18 to 28 years old, though exceptions may be considered;
• College senior or graduate from a four-year college or university.

Obviously, the first two were taken care of, and now the last one is, too!
