  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

ian from arlington, MA
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.
Thomas from Stoneham, MA
Great school, it has a family approach for when you are studying, and everyone is there for the common goal of making you the best person you can be.
