eunbi - 08/23/2021

This school is great the professor's are always there to help you and very good and supporting. I am not sure it's because of the specialized program I am in but I would rate this school high. Although tuition is high I think academically it challenges you and is a good school overall.

Rachel - 03/10/2020

The college overall seems very welcoming and for someone who is traveling far to see it, I am glad I did. I am looking forward to returning and enjoying the atmosphere once again and really get to experience what it is like to step out of your comfort zone but join a college that will always be there for you and treat you like family.

Muhammad - 08/14/2019

LIU Brooklyn is an outstanding school. There are so many resources around and inside the school if it’s feels as if it almost impossible to feel like there is no one to ask for help. The staff especially are very kind and warm welcoming people. I would recommend LIU to students who are pursuing almost any career in college to definitely check out LIU.

Gianna - 07/31/2019

I didn't attend LIU, I applied here. Experienced the WORST thing ever! A few months ago I got a denial letter in the mail. At this point I had already put into force my Plan B for graduate school. I received an email on Monday accepting me into the program for Fall 2019, with links to complete my enrollment to secure my spot, along with a FASFA link; it seemed legitimate. I emailed graduate admissions to let them know I was going elsewhere for my education. Then after, received an email from somebody completely different telling me that the acceptance email I received was sent in error and to "kindly disregard this communication." This is EXTREMELY unprofessional, ESPECIALLY for a University! I emailed back expressing my frustration. To continue the unprofessionalism, I received a missed phone call at 10 o'clock at night before bed. I was continuously nagged the next day for them to explain why this happened in the first place. This should've NEVER happened in the first place, I already expressed this to graduate admissions. I can only hope this is a lessen to the University to have this not happen to another potential student, because it is EXTREMELY devastating news to hear.

  7. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about my school is how competitive the medical programs are. With all the competition going on, I know several students who found out on the second day of class that they were accepted or denied fromt their program of interest. At this point, they had to make last minute choices to maintain their financial aid for the year by taking extra classes or choosing another career within a matter of a few days. Also, there are some medical departments that show absolutely no interest in helping students which discourages them from even trying.

    What's unique about my school compared to other schools I considered is it's size. The campus is very small, but with big opportunities. I am attending this school as a Dance major. What I like is that the dance program is small, so one gets individual help without an overcrowded environment. It is also close to the Broadway District in Manhattan, where I am able to see Broadway shows without having to travel hours to get to Manhattan.
