Making Recruiting Great Again
More like fit and fill. If big navy has made its swo accession goal for the FY no additional swo’s can go to OCS until the next FY, which is usually around July (whenever that OCS class graduates 1 Oct or later).100 in a class is not normal, more like 70. Some classes even get as low as 25 people. Why the variation? Who knows? My guess is the reason it's lower in the winter months is because people don't want to be in RI when it's cold and whoever is running the OCS machine isn't obligated to put the max number of butts-in-seats. As far as FINSELs go, I got mine 4 days prior to my class-up date. That was fun.
