    You don't "join OCS" for starters.
    You need to have a college degree from an accredited school (and be between age 18 and 32) to apply for Officer's Candidate School.
    Depending on the year, The Navy may draw precious few officers from OCS as opposed to ROTC and the Academies.
    The Navy OCS program is designed to meet the needs of The Navy, to add more officers to the commissioning pipeline in any given year to meet manpower shortfalls from other commissioning sources, and to deliver officers with specific skills or backgrounds through targeted recruiting. Getting an OCS slot is every bit as competitive as the other commissioning sources.

    And yes, there will be another DoDMERB physical/hearing/vision exam.

    There is an OCS forum here. You may have better luck having the thread moved there.
