Expensive, but worth coming here to LIU Brooklyn for your upcoming school semester

I expected more from the school considering it was my first choice specially after paying 35K a year I would expect a better staff and professors. Its very difficult to say i would recommend this school because it has more downs than ups. The professors in the nursing department specifically are extremely cold and rude. They do not care about the students and when they are giving exams they do very poorly on the questions considering how confused everyone is after they took an exam. Its very stressful and they offer very little financial support such as scholar ships and grants and every year tuition goes up by 20%.
