What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Coming from a small school with no more than twenty pupils in my class was a huge leap to Stony Brook. In particular, if you are a science/ math major with aspirations of graduate school mainly medical school, prepare to be around very driven individuals who will stop at nothing to get the best grades possible. Professors know this and they make the classes the difficult; thus, an A and many times an A- was attained through arduous work and well deserved. More than anything, you will learn time management, independence and acquire discipline if you didn't already come to college with these qualities. Prepare to study religiously and don't second guess yourself if your first test and quiz scores are not what you are used to.
