Rhetorical question: how many guys out there have a story that begins with "I was going to [insert: attend SFAS, graduate from Ranger School, attempt SFODD selection, attend BUD/S, hook up with a hot chick, graduate high school], but..."???
Dude...stop listening to what other people are telling you, and go get the information directly from the SF unit. For a number of reasons that I'm not going to go into at this time, the story you were told doesn't check out.
Listen to jwarren. Contact the SF unit and get it from the horses mouth.
Best of luck!
