I'm 17, enlisted a few months back and waiting for highschool to finish so i can be a marine scout/ sniper. I do know you need:

calculus and other math
stamina (Last days without sleep)
good shot of course
20/20 vision (you can get surgery if needed)
and much much more

They'll teach you and train you on all of those things. You really have to be dedicated and want it bad. Talk to a recruiter.
