My AOCS class started with 32, graduated 20.
Have you spoken to an Officer Recruiter yet, or at least started to study for the ASTB? Overall, instruction includes Naval history, engineering and weapons, damage control, Naval orientation and warfare, leadership, seamanship, navigation, and military law – in addition to physical training and rifle drill.
The Navy DOES care about your major. I dont reccomend it though. I didn't expect it to be like college where there is a bell curve and teachers have to give out so many C's D's and F's.
Just to reiterate, it's pretty hard to attrite from OCS. OCS applications are handled through the Navy Recruiting Command. Much like the military there are numerous steps in the recruitment process and the farther you go the more competitive it gets.
Generally, three members of the staff at the Officer Training Command Newport are specifically assigned to each class. 2014 Examination Cycle Pass Rates Specialty Area (# of option B applicants) Option A – Direct Patient Care Option B – Residency Graduate Cardiovascular & Pulmonary (4) 79% 100% Clinical Electrophysiology (1) 50% 100% Geriatrics (9) 84% 89% Neurology (37) 81% 97% The focus of this phase is to introduce candidates to the profession of arms by instilling discipline, military bearing, attention to detail, and building unit cohesion. If you want to finish, you will, whether it's in 12weeks or not, may be the question, but hey, a commission is a commission.
If you already have your degree, go to OCS - 10 week session.
The Navy graduates and commissions approximately 1,200 Ensigns annually through OCS. Best thing you can do it put together the strongest kit you can (ASTB scores, LORs, Motivational Statement, etc.)
All in all they didn't drop any candidates after the first Tuesday. I know because I have tried, the rated boards meet only twice a year, and you can only hope and pray that they have any pilot slots open (usually they don't), most slots get taken up by the ROTC and the Academy boys, the rest gets dumped into OTS. Follow that, you'll ... you get people who roll durig the in-PRT and can't class up until they pass an in-PRT with an incoming class. What part of "talk to a recruiter" did you not understand? Navy OCS is a 12-week course that develops future Navy officers through an intense program based on academics, physical training, and personal and professional development. To my knowledge, an integrity violation or drop on request (quitting) are the only surefire ways to never get back into OCS. Enlisted personnel applying to OCS should reference OPNAVINST 1420.1 (series), Promotion, Special Selection, Selective Early Retirement, and Selective Early Removal Boards for Commissioned Officers of the Navy and Marine Corps.
If you overconcentrate on the failing statistics, you're missing all those who succeed (and you'll see some that succeeded but shouldn't have).
Washout rate little over 34% (includes PLC and regular OCS). Yes, people wash out of OCS just as they do in all commissioning programs. Mental training involves memorization of military knowledge, academic courses, and military inspections. There is a significant dropout and washout rate from the Navy Academy and NROTC (academic, physical, leadership failure, ethics violation, etc) also. Latest pass rates for CIMA case study, objective tests, exam results, certificate level exams and scaled scores. My husband just graduated OCS and he started with 47 in his class and 45 graduated. First and foremost, you should talk to a Navy Officer Recruiter to go over your specific circumstances. There's a girl here at CECOS who took a year...let me repeat that, AN F'ING YEAR to finish OCS. There are a surprising number of candidates who have attempted OCS more than once and were successful on their 2nd or 3rd time. The 12-week course is divided into three distinct phases: Phase 1, Indoctrination Candidate; Phase 2, Officer Candidate; and Phase 3, Candidate Officer. Navy selection rates for Pilots have been high lately (70%+) but that can change and you have no control over that.
Beginning in 2014, ABPTS began releasing pass rate data by specialty area.
It seems to me that c17hopeful's remarks were straight forward. Although that is the way to get the most accurate iformation, members of this site are looking for something different.
The aviator portion of the pipeline in both AF and Navy are generally already filled by USNA and ROTC cadets and midshipmen, leaving an OCS aviation candidate little or no room for a slot. From all the research I have conducted on my own, I constantly see both the Navy and Air Force are extremely short on pilots. Candidates will learn leadership as it pertains to ethics and management, engineering and weapons, Naval history, Naval orientation and warfare, navigation, and Naval operations and seamanship. Only one who got kicked out was NPQ. Thanks for your replies. I have been pursuing the fire service for three years now and that is generally the average time it takes an individual to get hired.
To apply, contact your nearest Navy Recruiter or send them an email referencing Officer Accession Programs.

At the end of this phase, candidates are selected by the class officer for billet assignments based on their class standing. If you fail OCS you will be sent home and (usually) given the option to re-apply. I assume that if your heart is in it, you won't have a problem. I would say that it is much more realistic for you to set your focus in getting accepted into Navy OCS as a SNA while the acceptance rate is high, so study your ass off for the ASTB and kick ass.
Officer Candidate School specific information is located in Chapter 7. As mentioned OCS is used to fill out the pipeline.
If you’ve earned at least a Bachelor’s degree and you’re interested in OCS, you’re probably wondering if you’ll be accepted.
To satisfy my curiosity, what would a candidate have to fail so many times to keep rolling back? This phase focuses on academics in support of meeting the professional core competencies required for graduation. Upon completion of Navy OCS, graduates are commissioned at pay grade O-1 (Ensign) unless prior enlisted already holding a higher pay grade. I am not giving up on my dream as there are many people who become firefighters even in there late 30's early 40's but I would like to fulfill my goal of serving my country in the mean time or open another door in my life as the firefighter door seems to not be opening. In the rare instance that there are any openings, then you will be competing with all other applicants in the nation for those few slots.
I am 24 years old. OCS applications are handled through the Navy Recruiting Command.
If we are thinkin about the same girl, came in barely able to do 3 pushups.... and she was BDCP! There's a girl here at CECOS who took a year...let me repeat that, AN F'ING YEAR to finish OCS.
Attendance of an OCS is limited to civilians who have a four-year college degree, enlisted service members with at least 90 hours of college credit who are transitioning into officer roles, and Direct Commission Officers. Additional questions should be directed to your command career counselor. Rolling isnt that big of a deal. Navy OCS applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in any field from an accredited university and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Applicants should be between 17-34 years old and able to satisfactorily pass a background check.
