Maritime School Choices

I will be graduating with my first degree soon and have decided to go into the maritime industry. I am currently stuck between Great Lakes, Suny, and Mass. Each has its own push and pull factors. I was wondering if I could get some feed back on experiences and lists of pros/cons about each. Also, Suny has mentioned a master’s program that would still allow me to get my 3rd mate’s licenses. If you have taken this route, I would really appreciate the feed back.
