Is there such a thing in the Navy where you can sign the paper, try to get a SEAL contract and if you don't you can drop out of the Navy?

    YES - 

    I copied this directly from their web page: https://www.military.com/special-operations/requir... -

    Although there is no easy way to become a SEAL, there are several ways to become a SEAL candidate. As a civilian you can request to join the SEALs prior to enlisting through the SEAL Challenge Contract (Seaman to SEAL program). The SEAL Challenge Contract guarantees you the opportunity to become a SEAL candidate and entitles you to certain bonuses and benefits when you enlist.If you don't get a SEAL Challenge Contract prior to enlisting, you can still volunteer to take the Physical Screening Test (PST) during the first week boot camp. If you successfully pass the PST a Naval Special Operation Motivator will interview you. The motivator will then submit a request for you to enter the Naval Special Warfare (BUD/S) training pipeline.TIP: Be sure to tell the Navy recruiter that you want to take the SEAL Challenge before you enlist. SEAL volunteers that don't have the SEAL Challenge Contract prior to joining don't qualify for the same benefits as applicants that have the contract.

    nope, you can enlist with a seal contract, but if you ring the bell at Bud/s you still owe 6 years to the Navy

    Nope.  You will get sent to the Fleet Undesignated, or be allowed to get an A school

    Only if the recruiter has a form for refusal to enlist.

    Yeah not going to happen. All military first contracts are 8 years, minimum 4 years AD for the Navy, the rest is IRR. If you fail to become a SEAL then you will be transferred to another Rate to do your time. The only way you will be finished is if you are injured and discharged.

    You have to be mentally and physically alert to be a SEAL, and know how to swim long distance. Pass and you get a bucket of animal blood poured over your head. quod erat demonstrandum

    `No.  One can request training for a certain field, but if that does not work out for some reason, one can not just drop out of the Navy.
