| Long Island University is very expensive and getting your Master's Degree is more expensive. They do not have alot of social work teachers. If you are a social work major you will get a Bachelor of Arts degree which has nothing to do with social work. My social service job asked to see my degree. My supervisor said he thought my degree said Bachelor's Degree in Social Work. Long Island University needs to change this. The degree needs to say Bachelor's Degree in Social Work. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree and it is hard for me to find a social work job. I did not know that I was going to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree. No one told me. Go to a school that will give you a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work which will make it easier to find a job. I moved to another state and I can not find a job with a Bachelor of Arts degree. I payed all that money for nothing just to get a Bachelor of Arts degree which is like having a liberal arts degree. |

| LIU is not a school recommended for undergraduate science majors because the many faculty and TA's will screw your chances of getting in science programs like pharmacy, medical, physician assistant, and more. I did have few good science professors, but the rest were horrible. I was in the Honors Program too which I was doing good, but there were few professors that were not so good. Two advisors that I had were horrible and did not help me in my times of need. They would put me down and yell. I was an undergraduate pre-pharmacy major and my experiences were so bad that my family recommended that I got to another school to complete my pre-pharmacy requirements and then later I applied into a pharmacy program. At LIU I had people from a TA and advisors telling me to enroll in other programs within LIU and that no school would accept me for transfer. It was all a business to them for me to continue to stay in LIU. I transferred and complete my pre-pharmacy requirements. I did graduate from another college with a bachelors and went on to do Masters. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL if you plan to apply to a science program whether in LIU or elsewhere. IF you get poor grades like in organic or chemistry or biology classes it will hurt your chances getting into these programs. This school is very expensive and you will not get your money's worth. It's better to apply to a reputable institution that will help you succeed in your goals. Really research online and talk to people about which colleges are the best for you before you apply. |

| The postives overlook the negatives. But there were negatives. I took the paralegal continuing program that ended 5 months ago. I have yet to recieve my certificate. A letter to the dean asking him to call me was never returned. Only now that I'm calling them every day are they getting in gear with sending out my certificate. Any contact has been on my part. |
The second problem was teacher's not showing up. Usually due to the school not letting them know change in schedule. But the students suffered. This happened 4-5 times.
On the positive, the teaching was decent and most teachers were easy to contact. There was one jerky teacher, but overall they were pleasant. This was close to my home and was significantly lower in cost comparably. I would do it again, only this time I would call to confirm about class every day and really get on them sooner to send my certificate.
