  • Where is Maine Maritime Academy??? One of the best marine engineer colleges in the world!!!!

    • Anonymous

      The Maine Maritime Academy ranked 1st in the firing of administration wives related to the VP of  Finance and public affairs for gross malfeasance.

        I think she’s referring to the fact that MMA grads actually get jobs. The poor COA kids I deal with on my vessel as fisheries observers had a great time at school. Unfortunately there are no jobs in the marine biology field unless you are a PHD.

          One applies to COA for its political science programs. One enrolls at the MMA for its sports and spa facilities. The MMA also ranks #1 in the number of football coaches per student. Six in all.

            Well, this one enrolled at MMA for the excellent education I received.  You really should see someone about this obsessive fixation/hatred you have for MMA.

            Poli Sci? you need to read up on COA, it’s Fishcounter U.

            Sports at MMA? They built that foolish football field while I was there only because the money from Alfond could only be used for athletics. Neither I nor any of my friends participated in athletics while we were at MMA, too busy studying. Of course we all have good jobs, and pay some of the highest income tax in the state of Maine.

        You obviously have a problem with MMA. It seems that every time a college, any where in the world is mentioned in a story, you chime in with your constant hate. I’m thinking that if there is a problem, it is yours.

      Uh, apparently not. Sorry.

      In my books it ranks very high. Most of the students who graduate have job offers waiting for them at or before graduation.

    • Agreed!  I also would have thought that Husson would easily make the list- they’ve been so proactive in expanding their programs of study and have done so in many cases without duplicating those of the University of Maine, as was the case with the Pharmacy program.  The School of Nursing was the first of its kind to be a joint baccalaureate-level program between a hospital (EMMC) and a private (at that time) college.  I was a member of one of the first classes to graduate from that program.  I fully expect Husson to eventually be successful in its pursuit of a School of Law.

  • What about Husson University?

    • Anonymous

      The list is about actual colleges and universities.

      • And what is that supposed to mean?  As a graduate of Husson I am offended by your comment.

          It is required to post here at the BDN

      • Not really, USM and these other colleges’ text books are like high school material, not only that but they fall far short of the new global standard of academics.

  • Anonymous

    Wow, some compassion there buddy.  What did I expect though? Nothing less than this of course.

    • Anonymous

      It seems that the BDN has a problem that the news of the Maine Maritime Academy’s VP of Finance and public affairs committed suicide last month leaked out, so this comment was removed for review. It figures since the BDN’s owner is on the MMA Board of Trustees.

    Are these some of the colleges that our glorious governor says are looked down upon? Every time he opens his mouth, the statements are a little less fact based and a little less intelligent. But hey, in the eyes of the world, he speaks for all of us here in Maine. Nice.

    What about the college in Machias? Best place for the under-prepared learner. Must provide excellent service to the 70 or so students they graduate each year.

      They didn’t go that far East.
      Banjo music scared them off when they were doing their investigation.

    Waterville and Lewiston right in Mr. Lepages back yard.
    Keep up the great work Mr. LePage…
    Kudo’s for getting these 2 colleges in to the power rankings.

    I think Princeton has made themselves look uninformed to say the least. Maine Maritime Academy is one of the most top notch colleges out there. Entrance requirements may be “average” , but once in you better bust your A**! Unlike some of the “Ivy” colleges that are hard to get into , but VERY easy to stay there.

    What happened to the original story listing UMaine Orono with 4 of the worst grades?  # 6 with Unapproachable professors (which I disagree with), #19 as a party school, # 9 is least happiest students, and # 20, least likely to study.  Those used to be listed in this article.  Where are they now?  

    I assume that this “The College of the Atlantic was listed eight times in the top — or bottom — 20. Bates and Bowdoin were listed five times, UMaine four times, and Colby three” is now supposed to cover those without being specific anymore. Which doesn’t give credit to the universities who had something to be proud of.
