Enlist in the Marine Corps, go through basic training and do your time. Complete the required course work for your MOS. If you don't get into trouble, you should make corporal in a couple years.

Also in action you commit an act of selfless bravery or help out your division in an extrodinary way in action you should make corpral or higher a couple days after the action if seen by a sergant or any higher rank and they reccamen you for it.

No, A Corporal is an NCO and a Lieutenant is a commissioned Officer.

In the US Army, there's two ranks - Specialist, and Corporal. In the US Marines, it's just Corporal. The Specialist rank in the Army is not an NCO rank, whereas Corporal is.

You are mixing services. Rangers are a part of the US Army. US Marines are a separate military unit.

Corporal. Note: An E3 in the Marine Corps is called a lance corporal; a rank which to the best of my knowledge only exists in the British Army and the US Marines. A lance corporal is the highest enlisted rank, and a corporal is the lowest non-commissioned officer rank.
