I have gone to Mass Maritime for theQuite BrightOther
I have gone to Mass Maritime for the last two years, and I would tell anyone I know that plans on going to not. The school's ultra-strict and the disciplinary system seems to favor those who are friends with cadets in power. If you have any sort of health problems don't go to Mass Maritime either. You sign your life away when you come here and it haunts you everywhere you go. I am in the International Business department and the vice-head is a self-absorbing snob who looks down on all his students because they do not understand his version of teaching, he spends half the class talking down on our lives. It is a shame because the program has a lot of potential. With the economy looking on the upside again, I would say anyone looking to study business here would be better off at another college with a recognized business school, trust me no matter how they advertise the job afterwords it is NOT worth it.

Question
This might be a good school for some,Quite BrightEngineering Department
This might be a good school for some, not for me. As a young women, I was discriminated against because I wasn't a guy. Most of the guys try to bag as many females as they can, have high levels of sexual harassment in which the staff turns a blind eye to. The academics are a joke, some professors can astoundingly call women whores without any consequences.

Employers do look at this school with enthusiasm, it does have a good reputation. However, this was not the school for me. I was so happy when I transferred to a different school, where I was accepted and not yelled at for crying for being yelled at and called a whore.

Over crowded,over priced.AverageEngineering Department
Over crowded,over priced. students are not that bright and instructors are worse. They are hired because the knew someone that they worked with or a friend od Gurrons. Faculty are not trained teachers but hacks
