[QUOTE=Xmsccapt(ret);122479]He’s right. Msc does not care about a degree, only a license and a warm body to send somewhere. While the degree may serve you well after employment in dazzling someone with your knowledge and abilities, but don’t expect msc to roll out any red carpets. You would be employed as an entry rating ( either engine or supply). After working at the entry rating you may indeed be afforded the ability to work your way up. With Msc you can go as far as you want. Warning! There will be a lot of sea time involved… Know what your getting into.[/QUOTE]
won’t say I know exactly what I am getting into (Father, friends and numerous uncles part of MSC), but I’m aware of the seatime and being out a lot. At the time, I don’t mind that and I’m looking forward to it.
I know I can’t do anything without seatime, so was wondering if seatime from the military will count for them. I have a 2 year commitment to the navy and I’m going to look to get as much sea time as possible in hopes it’ll help me in MSC.
Thanks for the confirmation. I didn’t expect them to roll out a red carpet, but was wondering if it would help instead of starting out as a wiper like my friend who just had a HS education ( I say this trying not to be derogatory)
Either way, I have a 2 year Navy commitment now and hope the sea time can translate over to there. My dad said it wouldn’t make a huge difference, but he was in the Navy for 22 years
