Applying to admission at the maritime academies


#81

You know, You don’t have to live is Mass to get low tuition rates at MMA.

MA,CT,&RI is $1500/yr
DC,DE,GA,FL,LA,MD,NC,NH,NJ,PA,PR,SC,VA,VT is $2500/yr

Everyone else is $17,000/yr

Not sure if this helps but it’s something to think about.

I will probably call the admissions director Monday and see if there is a solution to our dilemma

Got accepted to Mass Maritime today, quite excited


#84

Congrats - Is Mass the one or are you considering other options as well?

Well I was also accepted to GLMA but depending on how much scholarship money I receive from Mass I would like to go there.

I found northeast State schools don’t offer much in the way of scholorship assistance. (Under $1000/yr) I applied to SUNY, Mass & Maine.

GLMA may be different, don’t know.

Yeah I know that I can secure a spot in SSOP at GLMA but I haven’t heard back from MMA. I can only hope for the best from MMA

Sad to say that ive been dropped from GLMA. Apparently they do not follow the May 1st national decision deadline and I needed more time to decide.

And it is troubling because I was almost certain thats where I wanted to go, just not a $500 non refundable certain since student financial aid is yet to be released. I am also troubled because as I crossed the high rise bridge in Toledo three large barges were docked and it really got me thinking…


#89

Have any decisions been made?


#90

Not quite. Right now my only option for maritime is mass, but I finally got a response from an admission counselor from suny and said that I could still apply.


#91

I’m not an expert at this at all but went through it this year with my son looking to transfer into one of the schools. Texas Maritime says that they having rolling admissions meaning you could apply anytime during the year. Just need a 2.5 GPA.

Wow, never knew that. Does he just go to a state university atm?


#93

Marine College

Very useful for us…Thank U:D:D

I haven’t read all the replies here but I will tell you mma does not accept 82% of applications. I am a current junior and in light of an overloaded campus they are being a little stricter. However, I was accepted, having a 1500 on my SAT’s and a 24 on ACT’s. The interview was a big part for me. If you make it apparent you want to learn they will most likely let you in if you are an average student. they are a bit stricter on sat’s for engineers particularly in the math section. I am deck. hope this has helped you out. Best of luck

Maine accepts 54%. Mass accepts 50%.

I know for a fact that the average ACT composite is 21-24 (Mass Maritime is 22) at these academies. TMA is harder to get into and their acceptance rate is 70%. Not saying you’re completely off, but those stats just don’t seem right.
