massachusetts maritime academy is one of only a few maritime academies in the united states, and is a fully accredited, and fully respected academy known worldwide. i would personally rate this school as high as possible, being able to compete with job opportunities that only ivy league schools are known to offer. this school would without a doubt be rated at a ten.
