    Are you a graduate of the program? After my time in the Coast Guard I plan to enroll at either MITAGS or PMI. Any feedback would be appreciated on any bit about classroom time and at sea time. How does one pay for their bills at home if they are only making "cadet pay" with sponsor company's?

    Pb, I sold my equipment and cut my bills at home down to the mortgage and storage unit. It wasn't easy but it was worth it!
