USN Flight School DQ Options?

If someone were to get DQ'd from the SNA pipeline (post OCS) due to anthro measurements or something like that what are your reclassification options? I've heard that if you're an OCS guy that you just get sent home, but this sounds ridiculous to me especially for someone who has already completed OCS. Would the Navy really just send you home for something as simple as being DQ'd for anthro or vision requirements not met?

I love to overthink things and develop contingencies for shit that probably wont happen, but yeah just curious.

Sorry if this is the wrong thread. Seemed like the most relevant considering most DQ's come before API.

Typically any anthro and many vision NPQs are offered redes to NFO and all instances of anthro waivers are being denied. This is likely because the Navy needs NFOs and has an excess of SNAs right now.

The only stuff that get you out of aviation completely is rare and even then you've got options in SWO, supply and intel/crypto/IT designators.

I've know of 1, maybe 2 people processed out of the navy during IFS/API during the 8 months I've been here. Suffice to say they were not your average students.

Brett327 is right, worry about what you can do, and often the stuff ensigns can control is the difference between redes and separation if push comes to shove.

Hey, thanks. I appreciate your reply. You're all right about not worrying about stuff like that, especially because I really dont think I'll get DQ'd for anything. I just like to have contingency plans for everything; especially with the military. My time in the Marines didnt run so smooth, so really trying to start off with as much knowledge as possible these next 15 in the Navy.

There was a thing or two I though NAMI might take exception to and I worried a little about it but thankfully nothing came of it and now it seems silly in hindsight.

I'm working on a digest of what goes on during any students time at NASC and what I've seen. When I finish next week I'll post it.

Good luck 🤞
