Not unexpected. Don't like half of the participants drop in that time period?

Not surprising. The vast majority of men would quit, too.

There's that, but there is still everything else. Allocation of resources, practical application, etc.. you know, reality. Regardless of feelings.

what percent of candidates survive week one?

It's easy to jump on this but if a large percent of men drop out too, makes it a smaller deal

She never even made it to BUD's to be able to drop in week one.

""The candidate who dropped out was enrolled in the Navy SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection program. If she had completed the program, she would have faced an officer selection panel and the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL program, or BUD/S, a six-month training course for the elite special operators."

respect for trying? 

OK, I'll try to be Miss America, or maybe I'll try to make the USA Women's Soccer team. 

Put some respek on my name.

 

So she signed on, tried, couldn't do the shit.  Respect?  Did anyone THINK she'd be able to make it?

Would you want a woman to be the person next to you who has to drag your shot ass to cover?

OK then.

SOAS WEEK ONE: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Week one is currently optional but highly recommended for Officer Candidate School applicants.

1. Introduction to NSW
2. General physical training with NSW Group 1 and local SEAL Team
3. Briefing and information sessions
4. Exposure to SEAL Team organization and home port operations.

Thats what she quit from. She quit from a heres what SEALs are seminar.

I'd be getting reclassed like a mofo. I didn't even make it through airborne, though.

The training curriculum begins at Naval Special Warfare Preparatory School in Great Lakes, Illinois. Here, aspiring SEALs are given a crash course in the physical standards required to even attempt to become a SEAL.
It starts with the initial Physical Screening Test and ends with a more demanding Physical Screening Test, one that includes a timed four-mile run and a timed 1,000-meter swim. The goal is to increase the SEAL candidates' physical readiness between the two tests so that they are ready to move on to Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) Training. Those unable to pass the final test are removed from the SEAL training pipeline and reclassified into other jobs in the Navy.

I recall one 'pastry chef'  by the name of Casey Ryback who seemed to do OK.
