    I poked around online with little success other than looking at the list of billets for SWO students from 2015-2017.

    I was wondering if anyone knows about where one could find data reflecting the # of billets for each of the different areas (SWO, aviation, subs, Marine Option, etc) over the last few years.

    (I know that they vary from year to year, but I'm just a bit curious.)

    This data is only for NROTC:

    FY14:
    SWO 255
    SWO (N) 45
    Subs 144
    NFO 65
    Pilot 228
    EOD/NSW 27
    Nurse 70
    Others 49
    Marine 307

    FY15
    SWO 291
    SWO (N) 45
    Subs 127
    NFO 63
    Pilot 244
    EOD/NSW 29
    Nurse 55
    Others 25
    Marine 314

    I don't have FY16 handy at the moment, and FY17 is not available yet.

    I'm curious; how does one go "Others" through NROTC if you're supposed to commission into a URL community?

    Color blind and got a waiver or they developed an issue while a Mid that NPQ'd them. Happens at USNA also. Assuming NROTC mirrors USNA closely, a few Mids can compete for and get selected for IP, IW, or even SeaBee communities too. I am sure NOLA can expand or correct if I am off base.

    Some will be folks that were medically DQ'ed for URL communities after they arrived at NROTC, and they'll end up going intel or supply or something like that. Others will be folks who get selected for SWO options like SWO (IP) or SWO (Intel). A few go METOC (Meteorology/Oceanography). Once in a blue moon you'll get one or two going medical, but that was more common years back. For FY15, the 25 that went "Other" represent only 2.8% of the total number of new Navy Ensigns.
