Should you lie at MEPS?

People lie all the time at meps, and after spending a day and the night before surrounded by the people from your general area then you can usually tell who is lying. It's honestly best not to lie because you'll end up getting discharged from the DEP if you make it past meps the first time.

What happens if you get disqualified at MEPS?

You can't enlist with a permanent medical disqualification unless you receive an approved waiver. If you are found to be permanently disqualified, the MEPS doctor will indicate on your medical form whether a waiver is recommended in your case. It is the first step in the medical waiver process.

Can you rejoin the military after being honorably discharged?

In general, an honorable discharge is the only type of discharge that you won't need some kind of waiver for if looking to rejoin the military. A reentry code of RE-1 is all clear for every branch but anything other than that may require a waiver or could make you ineligible for reenlistment.
