CUNY Brooklyn College Reviews

25 reviews
After my experience at Brooklyn College, I now truly consider it to be "the poor man's harvard." My experience as a Bachelor of Science degree candidate in biology was excellent. The professors were quite knowledgable and the courses were challenging enough to prepare me for medical school. Any negative reviews from people who have attended Brooklyn College must have been from students who did not take advantage of the endless resources and opportunities that are provided by the school. In addition, the cheap tuition (under $7,000 per year) allows students to receive a top-notch education at a bargain price! Most students graduate debt-free and loan free. The one thing I didn't like about Brooklyn College was that the non-science courses were easier than I would have hoped. I have received an A+ in almost all of the non-science courses that I completed.

I'm currently in my first semester (via zoom) at Brooklyn College and have been having a good experience so far! My professors and clinical advisors have been really supportive and have been working well with us through all of the current difficulties.
My experience at Brooklyn College so far has been great. In the Master Mental Health Counseling, all of my professors come to the college with personal experience in their chosen field. I love to learn from people that can give me real examples of the variety of patients they encounter. Brooklyn College has all of the equipment and space that I need to study my psychology. The staff at the college care about every student and I feel welcomed into their community. The only thing that I would change about the school is to upgrade some of the buildings.
