Transferred from another universityAug 14 2015Political Science
Transferred from another university. Despite paying out-of-state tuition transferring to Brooklyn College was absolutely worth it.

I had a really good average in high schoolDec 14 2012Psychology
I had a really good average in high school and did well on the SAT's. I doubt they took a second look though. This school will honestly accept anyone with a high school diploma. I recommend not enrolling into this school.
Brooklyn College, as per regulations of their federal andMay 08 2012Other
Brooklyn College, as per regulations of their federal and state funding, have grant admittance to anyone with a GED of high school diploma. If you have one you will get in and get choice into any major the school offers. Because of this the film department employs a ?weed-out? approach to their required course. This basically means that they make life miserable for the first five to six weeks so that you will drop. They say that they do this to make sure that only ?really committed? students will move forward, but really it?s just academic bullying. I did really well and moved through the classes just fine so it?s no like failed out and am therefore painting them in a negative light. I am as honest as possible when I say that this department does not have your best interest at heart. This is not a program looking to nurture, inspire, or teach you in any way. They just want your money and the extra federal budget that comes with every filled seat that makes it past the final day of withdraw?thats why if you?re absent more than twice before this date they fail you automatically; they don?t want to waste their time grading the work of people they are not getting extra money for.

Make extra copies of everythingApr 23 2011Art & Design Department
Make extra copies of everything. Be prepared to encounter failing and faulty online registration systems, unhelpful to the point of ridiculous administrative staff and uncaring advisors. Want to have some fun? Try asking for the full name of the person you are speaking to when you're contacting them on the phone. Chances are they won't give it to you, because transparency and accountability are not a part of the way this place operates. I recommend that if you get in, finish all your classes as quick as possible and get out.
