    I am 25 kinda getting a late start to this but I am thinking of going to a Massachusettes Maritime Academy

    whats your take on going to school and how good is this school?

    directly from school
    DOES this mean, I become a third mate on ships that sail internationally of unlimited tonnage? and how long does it take to reach the master of Oceans unlimited?

    Thanks :)
