United States Coast Guard Academy Reviews

The Coast Guard Academy is a hidden gem. I got to attend a nationally renowned college for free and now get to serve my country. The Academy was one of the most transformative experiences of my life, sure it was not easy, many days I struggled, pulled all nighters trying to finish projects while study for a test, completing my military duties and making it to sports practice. I got yelled at and in trouble for little things that I thought no could ever get in trouble for. But I learned, I learned how I respond to failure but also how it feels to succeed in difficult tasks. I didn't do it alone, the support network was amazing and everyone was open to helping you. The academy gave me so many amazing experiences outside of
just a degree, I got to travel the world, sail on a tall ship, see the sunrise from the middle of the ocean. I made some of the best friends here, and that, I would not trade for anything, not Harvard or Yale, not Annapolis or West Point.

The Coast Guard Academy is a difficult but worthwhile program. It is constantly evolving to meet the needs of the United States Coast Guard and fill her with competent officers upon their graduation and commission. It can be an extremely stressful environment, as the schedule demands 100% effort and squeezes productivity out of ever cadet, but there are many resources on campus to help students manage their stress.
This school has been one of the best experiences of my life. The people you will meet here are the best, you will learn how to learn and be a leader. The location while on 1st glance doesn't seem the best is located in an area close to a lot of things to do. And when you graduate you have a guaranteed job.
