The first woman who volunteered to attend Navy SEAL training has officially dropped out of the program.

A Naval Special Warfare official confirmed to the San Diego Tribune that the female service member who participated in the SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection program, has dropped herself from the course after approximately a week and a half, according to the news source.

The three-week Officer Assessment and Selection program is the precursor to BUDS (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) which is often featured in military movies and has a staggering 75% dropout rate.

To date, no other women have applied to become a SEAL, but one female is currently training to become a Naval Special Warfare Combatant-craft crew member, a role which recently became available for women.
