An RE code of 3F is waivable but it will be the decision of the service whether they think you're the person for them. The only way to find out is to go to a recruiter and request the waiver.
Before you do, though, you need to take a real close look at yourself and make the judgement call of whether the reason you were separated in the first place has been completely resolved. If it has not, you will probably be making a HUGE mistake by going back in.
A "failure to adapt" discharge is an administrative discharge rather than a disciplinary one. They almost always happen within the first six months of service and normally leave no blot on your record.
If you fail to adapt this time, though, you could land on the street with an "other than honorable" discharge and that is very bad news. That means no VA benefits, no veterans preference for jobs, etc. If you get into trouble before you get out you could also find yourself with a federal record (courts martial convictions can leave you a felon).
Do a good bit of naval gazing before you speak to the recruiter and, if you are quite sure whaterver landed you on the street last time is taken care of, go for it.
Otherwise, I'd advise you to get yourself sorted out or choose another career path. That second bite at the cherry has ended up a bite in the ass for a good number of folks.
Whatever you decide, I wish you well. Good luck.

Nathan Murray No one can provide you with your odds of getting back in. Talk to a recruiter to see if you have any options.
