Massachusetts Maritime Academy Reviews
Going to Massachusetts Maritime Academy is one of the best decisions of my life. No, it was not an easy road to be recognized as a cadet and go through two weeks of boot camp. But it was 100% worth it. This school is not for everyone. It takes a certain type of individual to come here. It hard to go to school here because of the regiment.We believe in three simple things: Discipline, Knowledge and Leadership. Those three words define us as cadets at this school. You will succeed here because of the family you will have in your company, the professors that truly care about you and the squad leaders(you will know what I mean if you come here) that are supporting in everything you do and helping you succeed in academics. Come to THE Massachusetts Maritime Academy, if you are up for the challenge.
Pretty much everyone at this school has the same background with the same narrow minded viewpoints and the instructors are no different. The view book gives the impression the school is diverse but it's not. If you're white you'll be welcomed with open arms if you're not be prepared to experience subtle racism, isolation and talked about as if you're still in high school.
As a freshman in my second semester here at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, I have learned ten times the values, life lessons, and traits here in one semester than I would have at an entire four years somewhere else. I have learned how to be a leader and a great person from going here so far. I would strongly advise attending this Academy if you would like a great career after graduating and a lifetime of respect from everyone surrounding you.
