    Anyone know where I can find the height/weight requirements for enlistment? Also, if a person can get a waiver if they're a bit over weight?

    You can get a waiver for just about anything. My advice is to lose the weight before you go in, you're going to have enough to worry about without the extra weight...just my .02!

    Just go and talk to the recruiter. He can let you know if you qualify. There is so so so much more to it than just weight to know if you can even get in. If you want to know if you should qualify then send me a message. I am a recruiter in Texas.

    If you have to ask the you are probably over. it all depends on how much over you are. dude when i went through boot camp i thought i was hungry, then came those guys on diet trays. yeah they hated life. 1/2 rations of what us regular guys ate. i went from 175 to to 157 in boot camp and i am 6'. i suggest doing what you can to drop the weight first.

    Ah don't worry about it, they'll send you to the (PCP physical conditioning platoon) AKA pork chop platoon if you need a little extra conditioning! :thumbsup:
