I’m a senior in High school and very interested in the maritime industry. My end goal is to become a captain in the private Yacht industry, I really like the idea of having a job that can take me around the world. I have been accepted to Maine, Mass, and California Maritime academies (Marine Trans) and still waiting to here back from SUNY. Where I am now, I really like Cal due to the cool location since I am from New Hampshire it would be something totally new and exciting. But I don’t want to chose a school because of location if the academics are subpar. I do not really like Mass from my visit there, I would chose Maine first I think. I like Maine a lot seems like a really well respected school and I don’t mind the regiment. My question is, is Maine better than cali in the aspect of getting a job after I graduate. I would much rather chose Maine if it means it puts me ahead in my career. But if it turns out where I go doesn’t matter and its all about the license at he end, then I think I would go with cali. I would love it if someone could give me advice who has attended either school or any Maritime academy and is currently in the industry.
Thank you everyone in advance!
