i LOVE THE ACCELERATED PROGRAM AND THE CONVIENCE OF LOCATION. I DO NOT LIKE THE ONLINE CLASSES. THEY ARE TIME CONSUMING AND I HATE TO JUST SIT IN FRONT OF THE COMPUTER ALL DAY.
Buyer Beware: For-profit Schools Cheated, misled, lied to and confused, Why did I have to be chosen amongst the vast abused? An over-achieving single teen mom busing to this school in the burbs, No direction at home, so I fed into their well-scripted nouns and turned them into verbs. The desire to learn and the drive to succeed, Led me into their chains and they sat and watched me bleed... All of my four years, long hours to earn A's and B's, But I had no idea I was a merely a subject of a corporate disease. A for-profit school who encouraged my dreams under false pretenses, But as the first to go to a "university" in my family- I thought I was jumping over new fences. How wrong I was to come up against this battle that they said would be securely covered- figures in-hand to prove this was for me, Over eighty thousand in debt and the doors slammed so quickly just one semester before my degree. I am NOT a drop out, I searched high and low for money to carry on, It's painful everyday as I realize all that I was robbed of for them to continue doing wrong. Now they deny my credits, my transcripts, but most importantly the dignity and opportunity I truly worked for all of my life. My dreams and future are shattered and my kids' livelihood scammed, immorally sacrificed. Thank you for the lies, the slick layout, and making me sign on the dotted line without reading and thinking things through, Thanks to your recruiters who made a commission-based living finding new victims to screw. One even contacted me outside of work- after he was fired for not meeting the quota they expected, Though this was a red flag, I was already so invested. I finally realized though, it's not even the degree that mattered most, It's the time I wasted believing in a school solely based on greed- leaving eighty percent of it's students societal ghosts. #DeVry #DeVryUniversity #ClassAction #Deceit #DontBuyIn #Run - #donottrythisathome #ListenUp #Research #cheatersgonnacheat #Poetry #Karma #DeVryReview #Scammers #Fighter #nevergiveup #inspiration #KnowBetter #DoBetter
Never without a job and this school made me rich.
I used to think Devry was a great school. They have commercials about all of these success stories on the TV all the time. That is what got me interested. The school work is effective and it is not 100% essays like some online schools. However, their communication sucks. They sent me an email stating I was missing my official GED transcripts. So I pulled them up on my computer and emailed them back. A few weeks later the same email was sent. Stating the same thing. So I resent them. That same day, which was 5 days before registration, I called them up and asked what was going on. They said my transcripts are not official because they are not sealed in an envelope. Because of this I cannot register for the next term's classes. Because of that I lose my GI Bill funding which I use to pay my rent. They could not take the time to call me and sort this out before it was to late. They never emailed me stating I had the wrong transcript. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The last college I was in had no problems accepting the same transcript. I mean do they think I forged it? I was in the military for the love of god how did I get in without my diploma? This school sabotaged my education and because of that I am going to be homeless. Well done Devry, well done.
I was disappointed in one element of my educational experience. It occurred for me as if the school added classes that I did not need, and was structuring my classes according to a major that was slightly different than what I declared when I transferred there. Because of this, I took a few classes that I did not need, and ultimately, I ran reached the maximum for my student loans and was not able to complete my degree as scheduled. This was frustrating, and I was very disappointed.
The most valuable insight I have gained from my college experience is the realization that the quality of education attained is entirely dependent upon the level of individual effort put forth. The majority of my career-essential knowledge has been attained exclusively through on-the-job training;however, it was through my experiences in college that I learned that self-expectations set to a high standard provides a personal pattern for success and makes a person their own engine for the change in their life.
The online courses that Devry offers were w good fit for me due to my travel schedule.
I would choose the same degree, but not Devry if i could start over again.
Do your research. Devry is insanely expensive compared to traditional colleges which are offering more online courses.
I loved my school and instructors. Attending school online was a great choice that fit my busy schedule.
I wouldn't choose the same degree. I would go with a technical degree.
Stay away from student loans. They hurt more than they help. My monthly loan payment is more than my rent. Try to find other ways to pay for your education.
I had a good experience with my DeVry education. The level of difficulty was relatively low, but I believe that you get what you put into this school. I graduated with a high GPA and was able to get an entry level job (also had military experience with degree). After getting a little work experience I was accepted into a Master Program at Penn State University. I think that many people have a negative perception of Devry, but it can definitely be used as a platform to other opportunists. The degree will not open all doors, but it can help you get interviews that you might not otherwise get. I was also in the military and got the discounted rate. If I did not have the discounted rate i'm not sure if I would have paid full tuition to go here, but in my situation it worked out.
I am not quite sure why or even how some of these other people had the awful experiences with DeVry? I was skeptical at first as well, but you have to be in any situation. I have to say, I did my own research, I educated myself on several school choices I had, the tuition/financial aid process and so forth. This was an investment in myself, and I could not be happier. I had realistic expectations and knew that I was going to bust my butt in achieving my goals and dreams. No schooling should be easy!
All I could say, is that DeVry was an excellent experience. At no point did I ever feel taken advantage of or ripped off! Students need to start being accountable for their own education and not expect everything handed to them!!!! Educate yourself! Question policies prior to signing up, educate yourselves! DeVry is awesome! Thanks to them I am now earning $64,000 more than I started. All I could say is it was well worth it!!!! No childish whining from this end!
