United States Naval Academy Reviews

The Naval Academy is like no other institution. By the metrics and aesthetics, it is a wonderful school with premiere instruction and academic opportunity. It is located in beautiful Annapolis, and the campus itself is wonderfully landscaped. The only time it is not is when fresh snow falls in the winter, which gives makes the school feel more like Hogwarts than a service academy. Although, it is not a conventional school and the curriculum outside of academics in place to develop a professional competency and ability to lead others unmilitary pursuits is very stressful. There will be no other place that one can apply to earn an education, develop life skills, and create the deepest bonds forged through adversity and trials like one can along the banks of the Severn. It is a difficult school, not for the faint of heart, but it is a wonderful experience and well worth the effort paid.

Absolutely loved it! Great atmosphere. People were the best, set me up for my future. The best four years of my life were here can't wait to see what kind of doors having this school under my belt will open.
Most students seemed to either really like or dislike their time at the school. I thought I was one of the people who disliked their time there. What I liked about it were the lessons of life and school. Approximately eight years after graduation and commissioning, I began to appreciate the value of the experience because prospective employers and professional schools indicated the institution enhanced a resume or CV.
