Washing out?

Post by yojink »

These may not be able to be answered but I'll ask it anyway... How does one "wash out" of RASP. For example, I know that in SFAS, one can wash out by voluntarily withdrawing, medically withdrawing, not getting selected, etc. But how does someone not make it through RASP? Second question, if you wash out, can you go again? Is it different for RASP 1 and RASP 2?

RangerJim, I've searched specifically for this topic on this forum but I've come up with nothing, unless it's hidden away in a thread that I've missed. I have read the FAQ with no luck as well as the general info given on RASP. Didn't intend on wasting your time, but maybe my question wasn't clear enough?

Your question infers a certainty to passing RASP once you get there.

I don't understand how you think these apply to SFAS but not RASP? Do you think our selection process is all unicorns and fucking rainbows or something?

I'll be generous and answer your second question even though you're too damn lazy to look this shit up. Of course you can go back if you fail out. There's nothing wrong with failure. It's how men become great and it builds character. No one is batting 1000 at life, at least no one doing anything worth doing. If you quit however, well, fuck you, your services are no longer required.

About spot on. It's perhaps unique to the course. You fail, no one else to blame.
