Maine Maritime Academy Reviews
EDUCATION: This school is definitely for a very particular type of person. The curriculum is in depth, with real life experiences incorporated into lessons. It requires dedication and a lot of hard work. If your goal is to go to a school, party your face off, and graduate by squeaking by, this is not the college for you. Professors are knowledgeable in their fields, and provide information that is current. Placement into a career after graduation is very high. People in the professional world know the quality MMA produces, and are quick to jump in and hire from the Graduate and Alumni pool. LOCATION: Campus is located in the middle of nowhere (a beautiful historical town), with the nearest entertainment opportunities located an hour away. That being said, we never had a hard time finding something to do. EXTRA CURRICULAR: The school has a large fleet of sailboats, which are available to the students (all you have to do is train with them, and pass their requirements). The school has several NCAA Division III sports teams (both Men and Women - including M&W Soccer, M&W Lacrosse, Football, M&W Basketball, and more). The school also has several clubs to join (including Rugby and Paintball). OTHER: For several of the Majors offered by MMA, it is a requirement to be part of the regiment (this was not required for Business degrees). The majority of students at the school are in the regiment, which adds another layer of difficulty to enjoying your time here.
Good school, excellent knowledge base from professors of all walks of life and levels of experience. Far from the beaten path, prepare for an hour's travel to most anything.
