Definitely hard to balance the academic and military standards, let alone to do athletics and socialize and get enough sleep. The teachers are always available for help which is great for classes.

It's the right school for the right person. In the beginning it is not a college experience and is very challenging but still there is happiness and fun to found for sure but then as the years go on it transitions into a more relaxed environment and by the end it was well worth it.

I don't rate the Coast Guard Academy 5 stars simply because of its difficulty. Balancing a military schedule with my academic requirements and sports has proven to be one of the greatest challenges in my life. It has made my life less than enjoyable vs if I was going to a normal civilian college.
