The above review is certainly not reflective of all of Stony Brook. However, the process of completing my thesis was a nightmare. Professors were less than useless, often provided conflicting information, and did not care for the students. In one class every student failed, except for the professor's graduate students (nepotism, anyone?).

The graduate school administration and has made put tremendous effort into making the graduation process horrific.

Please save yourselves and avoid this school at all costs!
