Applications and Academy Graduates for October 2018

Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in October.

This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. Thanks to another post on Reddit, October brought in twenty-nine new applicants! This marks October as the month with the highest number of applicants this year and represents our third consecutive month with an increasing number of applicants.

The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application:

This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of October. The fleet saw nineteen new graduates this month, which includes four applicants who applied during September, and marks October as the month with the highest number of graduates this year. It is also marks October as the third consecutive month with an increase in the number of graduates. Having nineteen new applicants helped provide the fleet with the surge in numbers to launch two new ships, The USS Eagle and the USS Montreal.

These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
