Binghamton University is a prestigious school with an amazing neuroscience program.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is a lack of professors in almost every single department due to the mandates, however, each class is set up for the student to succeed. There is no social life whatsoever. The biology department is over flood with students so they make many mistakes, and the students suffer.
