Not sure what the USMC's pre-reqs are, but the Army is: Normal color vision, 110GT score, 250 APFT, Expert rifle qual. I think that's it other than commander's recommendation, etc.

Nobody has come up yet with a way to predict the intangibles it takes to graduate from a high stress school.

Lots of guys wash out of schools like sniper, Ranger, BUDS etc who are more than mentally(intelligence wise) and physically capable of completing, they just lack something.

Not sure we'll ever really find a way to pre-qualify the intangibles required to excel in this type of training.
