| As foreign student, eduction is the most important thing for me, since i had many courses that i transfered them from overseas and from community college, i only did 3 semesters to graduate. You need to know one thing; school is a school everywhere, you need know what are your plans in life and if that school is going to let you reach what you want. For me Devry, APU, ULV or any local school are exactly the same they are not USC nor UC Berkley ... So study hard, be different do extra work you are going to make yourself not the school |

| As a current student at Devry, the 2 years I spent I had to travel to different campuses to take the required class, something that the student counselor doesn't not tell you. Eventhough you are always offered the online classes, you are still paying the same amount as on campus as University. Remember, a Univerisity is a lot more expensive. And Devry is considered a University. Worst of all, all the classes are hybrid online. There is no science lab here just answer the questions on the book. Math is useless, The professor just sits on his ass while you work on your own pace on the computer. For the amount I am spending on this school atleast teach me something. Previously I had to change my major because most my core classes (Multimedia Design) were going to be offered online and I can't learn on how to run a program without someone there to help me (online classes). So why should I spent all that money if I have to learn to that by myself? Fuck that, I am going to get my monies worth and get a higher paying job! |

| OK. Devry isn't the best school on paper, but one thing I remember a professor telling me from DeVry is that no matter what happens, you will always have an education. |
Tips for DeVry Students:
Get experience. No one really cares about what school you went too. But if that's the only thing you have on your resume with your clerical or fast food skills that you did during college it really isn't going to land you your dream job.
No one is getting tech jobs out of college, unless you got a hook-up.
I graduated from DeVry in Spring 2002 with the stigma of the dot-com crash luring over IT world, but I applied the things that I got from DeVry to help me learn more. You guys got to remember that you never stop learning. Out of DeVry the most advance thing you might know how to do as a CIS grad, is connect a simple ASP website to an Access database. Hey that's great, but look, everyone knows how to do that. What you all have to do is learn the things no one else knows. And that's what I did. You will be surprised how many companies are willing to allow a college grad work for free to gain experience. Not to mention the experience you can gain on your own. Hey if you have to start a business, so that you have a legit thing to put on your resume, (do this during college even), and learn about the latest or what corporate fortune 500 companies are using. I can almost guarantee doors will start to open. I guess what I am trying to say in my rambling, is that if you really want something, you will do whatever to get it. Hey I did it, and know I am 26 and I am leaving my current position as Systems Application Analyst Sr. Java Programmer to start a new job this year making about 84 thousand as the Sr Programmer for a fortune 500 company. And to think I graduated from DeVry with no prior experience, except the fact that I love to code. Hope this helps and good luck to everyone.
