Having graduated from Maritime in the mid 80sEngineering Department
Having graduated from Maritime in the mid 80s I see many common themes from thoses days. At that time we had a new Admiral who was changing the school and enforcing more rules and discipline. No one like change then and I imagine now. The bottom line is Maritime builds leaders and those leaders do exceptionally well in the Marine industry as well as shore side. Although no one like the heavy course load or regiment, the combination of the two plus the summer traing cruises define the graduates. Maritime is a solid school that does transform People who can handle the pressure. Are there better schools? I am sure there are. But my experience is that the school set me for success for the rest of my career. Graduate school was easy in comparison. The lessons I learned there have lasted a life time. The gibberish I read from some of the posts take me back to all my friends who were MT majors tying knots freshman year. I would tell prospective students to go engine and you will never regret the decision.

Question
I graduated 25+ years ago and our complaintsBusiness - Management and Administration
I graduated 25+ years ago and our complaints then were identical, for the most part, to what I am reading here. The fact of the matter is this: IF you graduate and IF you go into the industry (these are two big IF's) then Maritime is an outstanding school to be from. I was a typical cadet in the mid-80's, I had average grades, a lot of demerits, I spent most of my time getting drunk, chasing skirts and hating every minute I was there. I had eight room mates in my eight semesters, none of whom graduated with me. That being said, my classmates and I are now in our late forties and many of us are now captains, chief engineers, senior level executives, etc. I have run into class mates and alumi in all for corners of the earth and, although it pains me to say this, Schuyler had a profound positive impact on me professionally. The marine industry can be very lucrative and graduation from Maritime offers you entree into the club. The trick is to make it to graduation.

Question
Let me just say that maritime is notBrightOther
Let me just say that maritime is not for everyone. It is not a typical college experience, don't expect it to be. Location in NYC is decent (45min) and its in one of the nicest areas of the Bronx.Don't come here just for the opportunities after. You have to at least like what your doing or else it will be a miserable 4 years. This can be a slightly frustrating place at times but I'm overall happy with my choice in the end.
