At $13,000 for an 80-day course, it doesn't seem worth it. Especially with the limited amount of courses available and the restrictions on transferable credit.

If I were you I would check out..
www.semesteratsea.com
because that boat seems a little more "luxury" than the seamester one.
The seamester boat is only 80ft long.

I'm finally done applying to colleges. I applied to 5 and I was accepted at all of them with scholarships. I made my decision and I sent in my deposit and housing information last week. I'm going to Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ, to study International Relations. It was my first choice school and they gave me the most money ($13,500 a year!).

I'd like to do the Semester at Sea, but I'm probably gonna study abroad at Franklin College in Switzerland. It has a great program for my major, it's 5 minutes from the Italian border, and the "dorms" are appartments with balconies in the city of Lugano. It's such a nice school. I still might apply there, but I dunno if I want to be far from my friends and family for so long.

I think it would be a nice experience to try truthfully. The Sesmester at Sea program is more well know than the Sea Mester, which to me doesn't look and sound appealing. For $13,000 for 80 days course, its not actually bad...keep in mind that you are travelling at the same time!

I feel that if you wanted to study at sea, try doing it over the summer. Though if Yale ever started to offer their courses at sea, I would consider it. Right now, my schedule is tight and I can't afford to only get 6-8 hours in a semster. Plus I would go crazy having to spend more than 2-weeks on a ship.

Just one question. CAN YOU REALLY STAY ON A BOAT FOR 80 DAYS? I mean why not just go around the world in a boat?












Check and MATE!
