What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
I would rate this institution as a B+. The atmosphere is great, the friendships forged here are amazing and the level of intelligence among the midshipmen is incredible at times. The only problem I have with this place is the greatly varied and sometimes flawed leadership within the company and above. Your company officer and upper-class really play a major role in the environment.

For me, I divide everything about all service academies into fluffy and techie stuff. Fluffy: this is a beautiful school where so many amazing people have come before you, the hallowed ground idea. Techie: it's free, you have the honor of serving your country, and you have a job with minimal to no debt out of college.
