2 Students rated United States Coast Guard Academy
Ok school; can be miserable if you're not into the whole military thing. A lot of effort is place on developing cadets into great future leaders and officers. However, as a result, academics often get overlooked. I have rarely had an actual professor teach a class; usually it is just some Lieutenant who is there because they are required to for a couple years as an assignment. That said, they're usually available to help.
It's a good school that develops leaders prepared for the fleet. Starting with Swab Summer before you even begin academics, you are challenged mentally and physically. You grow close with your classmates and rely on them for help. You become family. The academics are difficult but it all depends on the person and the instructors are often available for one-on-one assistance. The location is not the best because there isn't much around that is close, but a couple hours in different directions and you hit some big cities. This military academy matures young men and women from all backgrounds. This is a challenging place that produces leaders of character ready to serve their country.

Follow your heart. Stick with your dreams but do NOT be afraid to change it.
The United States Coast Guard Academy is a challenging school where cadets are pushed to excel both physically and mentally. The Coast Guard Academy is looking for student athlete leaders who wish to serve as officers in the Coast Guard. Applicants should seek every opportunity to engage in athletics and community service activities in order to be a strong candidate for admission. Cadets who do possess sound moral character rarely make it through the first year of this program. However, well rounded individuals have an immense opportunity to develop personally and serve in their countries oldest continuous seagoing service.
The best thing about our school is that you are guranteed a job when you graduate as an officer in the United States Coast Guard! The experiences you get here are unlike any other you could ever get elsewhere. If you are dedicated to yourself and to your country, this is the place for you. If you are not totally all about being in the military, this is not the school for you.
That I would be owned! There are a lot of different ways to find out if you want to come to the school- you can go to AIM (a 2 week camp, which assimilates life as a freshman), a tour, and once accepted you can visit the school before accepting the appointment by being in a cadet's shoes for 2 days.
Gets lonely sometimes there. It takes a lot of discipline and want to go there and you can't maintain that all the time. Friends will always help you thorugh.
Determined, driven, intelligent, strong individual
All work and no fun.
My classmates are extremely close-knit, driven, intelligent, and great people. You really have to want to be here (the Coast Guard Academy) in order to succeed.
Outstanding performance and the Coast Guard.
Probably the fact that I am playing varsity football because a lot of my friends miss playing football.
A person who can't handle a lot of responsibility, who doesn't do well under pressure, and who doesn't want to serve their country.
A lot is expected from you all the time and it can be difficult to balance everything. There are also a lot of ups and downs emotionally due to everything that needs to get accomplished but it is well worth it in the end.
