So where do I start about LIU, LIUSuper BrilliantFinance
So where do I start about LIU, LIU will lie to you about everything. They are losing money, are a non-for profit, they don't have all the programs they say they have. The Cafeteria has been shut down three times, Financial Aid will steal your money. classes will vanish in thin air, You will never graduate unless you're rich or extremely lucky. Infact if you're not rich and pursuing pharmacy, Just don't go! Also for $1362 a credit, i should be challenged! If You plan on staying on campus a year might roughly cost you about 60-75k! Even my own counselor told me to go somewhere else! in order to leave you have to pay money you never owed and take, Phyc 1-2, history 1-2, sociology,philosophy 1-2, physics, stats human bio and tech, technology class,chem 1-2,art,and 9 credits of english. They threaten us if we go to the press or write in the school paper. Its really corrupt, I feel sad everytime i see new students on campus. Oh and any student thats an RA or in student gov no longer gets free housing or money towards their tuition starting this year.

My advice to you would be to notNot so brightNursing
My advice to you would be to not come to L.I.U , i thought that my first year of college would have been way better especially for the money that my dad was paying for me to come here. first off the students here are very close-minded and just like some comments below they stick to cliques (were in college not high school). The Conolly building is terrible everything is falling apart and the bathrooms are disgusting , let me remind you the school is 30k a year. the professors are also not great , i can honestly say i havnt learned anything here. The financial aid office can never help if you ask them questions some of the people working their don't even know the answers to any of them. One thing i can say about coming here would be that we dont have a curfew and since its New York you have so much to do regardless the time of day.I had so much fun in NYC but i can honesly say i havnt learned anything , you shouldnt come here especially if your coming to learn.

This could perhaps be THE WORST private institutionBrightPharmacy
This could perhaps be THE WORST private institution in the United States for the amount of money that you are paying. For a school that you have to pay 30K for, you really would expect more. The conditions of the school are atrocious with the buildings practically falling apart, and do not even get me started on the dorms. Other than the newest building, Pratt, the rest of the campus is not worth more your money. The professors as stated before are a dime a dozen in terms of useful and the university is just terrible. Believe me, even if you are doing pharmacy DO NOT come here. Go to St. Johns, Rutgers, ANYWHERE but here.
