Usually you can recycle a phase 2 times before you are a board case, granted you only failed patrols or peers. If you fail both your a board case and have to see a board that will evaluate your case.
After 2 times in a phase you might get a day one recycle, but I met a guy in Florida that had done it 3 times already and never got sent back to day one.
The current Brigade CSM, CSM Smith says he isn't sending any enlisted e-4 and above home, your ass is stuck in Ranger School untill you L.O.M. or get your tab. I was there druing RAP week getting recycled for running off the road duing the RPFT when 2 enlisted that failed the RPFT tried to quit and CSM Smith told them "too fucking bad, I'm not letting you quit." They pressed the issue and got a "Never To Return."
