    Please enjoy the open house, and then weigh your options carefully and seriously consider the state maritime schools as well. USMMA is NOT a substitute or a "safety" if you fail to get into one of the other 4 academies. Also, please be aware that USMMA's accreditation is currently under a warning status. Also, please be aware that sea year is not being provided to the midshipmen at this time and there is no plan in place to return commercial shipping opportunities to the regiment. I post this only because it appears that the USMMA website has not been updated with this information.

    Thanks KP Eng. Not meant to be innuendo dripping post. The MSCHE report requires that the accreditation warning be stated on the Academics page and I did not see it there. If it is there and not on a separate page, I stand corrected.
