Massachusetts Maritime Academy Reviews
Academically, this school is a joke. Maybe not for engineers or marine transportation majors, but for other majors, it is hard to fail. Teachers overwhelm you with work all semester and keep you in the mindset that you are constantly failing and need to catch up, then scale your grade so everybody passes. If you pass in a paper that’s barely worth an F, you will get a B. While you try to keep up with classes, you will also have to deal with room inspections, personal appearance inspections, nightly check ins, morning formation, and standing watch. They allow you to have a social life, but without drinking or girls.
They teach a lot of life lessons, and make use of their alumni base to ensure excellent job placement and salaries, but during the experience, you will doubt your choice
