Question

Can anyone tell me about meps? My boyfriend will be going there soon and I dont know what that means exactly? He said it was 2 nights and his recruiter said that it would be 3-6 months before he left for basics after he signs? I feel stupid because I dont know what this means but I dont have any experience with the military.

basic is boot camp. so basically he signs and a couple months later he goes to boot camp.
and MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) thats where they do all test and stuff and when he leaves thats where you will be able to say goodbye

So does is kinda like a pass or fail thing? And do they have to sign as soon as they get done with that?

boot camp isnt pass or fail. its more like pass you stay weeks. dont do so well, they keep you longer until they pass.
And technically they sign the contract the day they leave. everything before that is just making sure he is committed to the marines. Has he taken his ASVAB and all the other physical test yet?

He has taken the ASVAB and he is going to the MEPS this Friday but other than that I don't know. I'm new to all this, and I haven't had any experience with the military before this.

Oh...and I know about boot camp and that is kinda the do it and get it over kinda thing. I was asking if you can pass or fail the meps thing?

what meps thing??

i mean, there they normally do physical exams and just a doctor checks you out and all that
