   So I've been working on applications for maritime academies. For about five years now I've been utterly and completely unable to get a job related in any way to my degree in International Relations so it's time for a New Plan.
   The admissions information for the California Maritime Academy says that of the class of 2010, 97% were employed in their field with a median salary of $92,000 within three months of graduation. That sounds MUCH better than what my current degree has been doing for me! More important than the degree is the Coast Guard "3rd Mate Unlimited" license that comes with it -- allowing graduates to work as third mates on ships of any size.

   Most of the maritime academies only have undergraduate programs so I'd have to spend another 3-4 years getting a second bachelor degree, but SUNY Maritime actually has a graduate program that grants the coveted USCG license.

The SUNY program requires a GMAT or GRE score. My question for you all is what are the best way to prepare for one of these exams? Are they similar to the LSAT?
