"This school is great for someone who has a busy work life. The online courses make it easier for me to see what assignments need to be completed on a certain date. My only issue is that the classes only give you a week to complete the assignments and the teachers overload you with assignments during that week. I work 70+ hours a week and then have to cram in 3 essays, 2 quizzes and 5 hw assignments all in that week."

"I attended DeVry from March 2013 and just finished out my degree program in February. I wanted to share my experiences with those who are looking into attending DeVry. I have noticed that there are several controversial reviews out there regarding DeVry. Some state that the college is overpriced, the professors do not help, and if employers see that you attended DeVry they immediately throw your resume into the trash. I want to clarify some of these things. 1. Tuition - Yes, DeVry is VERY expensive if you are having to pay out of pocket or even get student loans. Each 4 credit class costs about $3500. If you cannot afford it or if you are not a veteran using your GI Bill, then find a community college that is within your price range. I used my GI Bill to pay for DeVry which they covered all 3 years of it. 2. Professors - I attended two different campuses due to a move. One in Federal Way, WA and finished out here in the Irving, TX campus. The professors you get really depends on the location. Most of the professors I encountered were very helpful and cared alot about their students. Some even went beyond the typical class outline to make sure we had a solid understanding of the material. I did encounter a couple of professors that were absolutely terrible and would not recommend them to anyone. BUT keep in mind, this can happen in ANY college you go to. Not ALL of the professors are terrible. It's luck of the draw. If you are not happy with them, then take it to the dean. It's as simple as that. 3. Employers - The statement that employers see that you have attended or graduated from DeVry will immediately trash your resume is not entirely true. Majority of employers care more about the fact that you completed a degree to prove you are a motivated individual. While it may be true that there are SOME employers that care about where you attend, it is a case by case basis. I have landed two jobs while attending DeVry with no problem. They could care less about the name of the university that I am attending or got my degree from. They cared more about what I have learned and if I have the drive to continue learning in my career field. DeVry IS a fast paced college. The sole purpose is to get your education so you can land a job quickly. They offer free tutoring, free software, free eBooks ($10 if you want a printed paperback copy). If you are used to a fast pace, then you will have no issue with DeVry. Their programs are designed to help you get a job and also provide hands on labs if that's what you choose. Classes are about 8 weeks each session so there is a lot to learn in little time. If you can handle it, go for it. If not, then DeVry isn't for you. All of these reviews floating around are all self opinions and majority are those who need to vent because of a bad experience. Don't let bad reviews turn you down completely. As with anything, take it with a grain of salt and remember not everyone has the same experience with DeVry."

"I had already imagined that going back to school was too expensive, too complicated a process and that I wouldn't learn anything new. I could have never been more wrong. It took one phone call to DeVry and I've been hooked ever since. It was during that phone call that I learned I could finish a degree program without a financial burden (VA benefits), work at my own pace, and someone would be there every step of the way to answer any questions that I may have. Two years later, I have completed an Associates program, a senior in a Bachelor's program, have gotten paid to learn (VA and Yellow Ribbon), and haven't been alone as the Professors, college staff, and coaches have been there when I needed them most. DeVry has given me a competitive edge in the job market that I believe that no other could and all from the comfort of my home computer. Looking back I can understand the apprehension but looking ahead I can see opportunity."

"After reading many of the reviews on here, I felt like I had to stand up for my Alma Mater. I am not sure why people are complaining about how expensive the school is. Everything is laid out there regarding cost of credit hours and full-time tuition rates. Multiply that by how many semesters / hours you need, and "voila", you have how much it's going to cost! It's not rocket science. I'm also confused about the people complaining about how difficult the courses are. Did you not want an actual education? If you aren't being challenged, you aren't learning. And no, this is not a fake review from DeVry. I am a former student. You can look me up on LinkedIn, if you need verification."
