Webster worked well for me as I was a single parent, often needing flexibility, proximity to my home and I prefer smaller classes with give and take between professor and student readily available. Unfortunately, I have found repeatedly that other educational institutions in the region have a more marketable academic reputation in terms of recruiters. I found that out when I peddled my undergrad and graduate degree from Webster around to the top employers in St. Louis and elsewhere and was consistently passed over for even entry level professional track positions. In addition, I find that Webster often gets passed over by top international/national recruiting firms as well. That being said, none of those other institutions were anywhere near affordable for me and although I transfered in with a 4.0 from a community college, who knows if I would have made the cut elsewhere. I guess I'll never know…I'm stuck with a student loan that I can't pay as I have been unable to get access to anything other than dead end jobs, rather than the career that I had strived for. In addition, because Webster serves a number of military institutions around the country, I believe their job placement rate of 80% is heavily skewed as they count people employed in the military as part of that. You may want to ask what their civilian placement rate is.
