If you apply yourself you will do well.Quite BrightOther
If you apply yourself you will do well. I found older students usually did better because they were motivated and willing to listen and learn. The younger kids that thought they already knew everything about IT because they built a web page usually dropped out. Many of them thought they would be writing video game applications etc. This is not a place you can just skate through. I have attended many diffrent state and private colleges and DeVry is better than all when it came to real world hands on experience and getting you ready for the real world. There are a lot of projects and assignments, so you won't have much of a social life. By the time I got to DeVry I already had that party thing out of my system and realized I needed to get my stuff together. My wife went there as well and we have done very well over the last 15 years with each of us making around 100k. However, we have trained and done a lot of work after DeVry. DeVry will give you a great foundation what you do after will determine how you end up. In IT the learning never ends if you are ok with training on weekends and constantly dealing with changing directions and ridiculous timelines then IT is for you, otherwise go get a business degree.

I graduated in 2003 and managed to landBrightOther
I graduated in 2003 and managed to land a technology job during a difficult technology economy. Since then my degree and what I learned at DeVry has boosted me into the the career I wanted. I just started a new job with a prestigious valley company with a pay range that tops over $100k.

I would definitely recommend DeVry and will hire DeVry graduates, BUT ONLY if they have a GPA of 3 or better. It was generally difficult to get an A in a class without learning anything, but I saw a number of people get a D or C without much effort because they only wanted to have a degree on their resume.My new employer offers tuition reimbursement so I'm looking to go back to Keller for my MISM.

Great school, wouldn't goQuite BrightComputer Engineering
Great school, wouldn't go anywhere else. Quality education that focused it's teaching on not only fundamentals but also what's being used in the workplace. Hired before graduation and have been promoted every year since then.
