So I’m going to be applying for Fall 2018, about to submit, for Marine Transportation.
I don’t have all the classes needed, or really the want (mediocre in math), to do Marine Engineering but I keep hearing this is the only maritime degree one should be going to CMA for, yet on CMA’s and all the other MA they say they are getting like 90-97% employment after 3 months of graduation, not sure which to properly trust…
I was wondering if there are actually decent job opportunities for fresh out of school MT grads in say, 2021-22 (or now)? I am curious because I won’t be getting massive amounts of finaid or help, so I’ll be on loans probably going to hit around 40-50k over the 4 years and I planned initially to essentially take all my wages of my first year working and put it towards paying that fully off, but if the general sentiment is true I am having decently high doubts.
Questions are :
- Are there decent opportunities for graduated 3rd Mates, and if possible maybe any stats?
- If when I go to CMA, and it is true, how easily it is to switch over from MT to MET?
and maybe, 3. How hard, or high the level, is the math for MET?
Thanks guys, sorry to sound like I’m asking a bunch of questions here but I’m kinda shook reading some of these comments and don’t want to essentially ruin my life by putting myself in massive debt for something that offers no to low jobs after graduating.
