"This school and the mental health counseling program is an absolute joke. Not only do they have one person running advisement, but the entire department is a nightmare. Financial aid gives you the run around constantly. Extremely careless. The professors they provide for you are useless. Enjoy teaching yourself with PowerPoint! With the exception of 3 professors, everyone else is an absolute JOKE. Save yourself the money and find another program."

"Long Island University is extremely expensive. I wish that one of the state schools on Long Island had the school counseling major so that I wouldn't be $40,000 in debt. They did not reveal just how competitive the field is. They did not mention that almost 1,000 people apply for a leave replacement position. On a more positive note, the professors were great and I did get to go to Africa for two weeks."

"Pros are definitely the quality of education. The great support offered by the faculty. The cons are the cost of education and the lack of internship/job placement assistance."

"I am excited about this program, and currently think the pros are the recent changes that have been made to upgrade certification of the program."

"The program is great so far. After having taken off several years from school due to family illness I was looking for a part time program that would be ease me back into academia, and have a staff and a work load that understood I had a full time job while still being challenging. I got that at LIU, in my very first meeting I explained my expectation for the program and they helped tailor my class schedule around my work and have been very understanding about my needs as an employer and a student. The only down side i have seen so far is that not every professor answers emails, and the parking is far and not well lit. Otherwise my time at LIU has been great and is highly recommended to anyone who is looking to return to school."

"Wish more financial assistance were available for graduate students. i currently live on dorm and although where i live is wonderful it is expensive especially if you are someone who hasn't a choice but to live on dorm. Social events which would encourage graduate students to interact would also be helpful."

"LIU-Brentwood is a great school to get your Master's degree. There are no "bells and whistles" and at this stage of schooling, your paying for your education, not social clubs. I'm only in my second year, but I love the close and intimate classes. You get the attention you need and the help you want from everyone from professors to administration. Everyone is looking out for you. This is a great school to make connections and begin to build your networking skills."
