The main thing I know about Devry University is that they keep on putting spam in my in-box. But that is actually all I need to know about them. A university that does that can't be any good.

Attention prospective students: don't go to DeVry; it is probably a rip-off.

Attention employers: don't hire Devry gradates; it is unlikely that they are well-trained.

DeVry needs to clean up their act and deliver the high standard education they always advertise but obviously donít deliver in most of their locations. The majority of their profits goes to advertising to get new enrollment that mislead students only to acquire their state grants .Meanwhile because of DeVryís financial shortfalls they can barely provide the essential elements needed in their core courses & hired many unqualified instructors who are simply local businessmen & have never have taught in a school environment. This seems to be a new wave of American business strategy in education when a for-profit university is simply a business prospect than a relevant educational facility. As long as the big executives get their 6 figure salaries and bonuses they couldnít care less about the quality of service/product they sell. This demonstrates the fall of once honest business practices in the USA and now reveals their lack of integrity without appropriate government regulations.

The admissions personnel spend more time reading their scripts than actually knowing what really goes on at DeVry. But they are simply employees working on how many new students they can enroll for their earned commissions. DeVry has become a lucrative business for the key executives that now run the corporations. Many reputable corporations will not hire from DeVry graduates since they don't feel students received the essential education needed in today's high demanding technical fields. Some DeVry recruiters are honest and tell you the truth but most just want the commission they receive for enrolling as many people as they can that walk through their doors. State grants are easily distributed by government agencies and never hear the voices of students left without a reliable education after receiving their degree. DeVry executives all got their real educations at Harvard, Stanford or Princeton and I highly doubt they would send their own children to DeVry. After all itís just considered their business that provides them with their personal wealth to achieve their goals

Education will be the next bubble to burst. The return on investment is starting to become questionable. Maybe people are becoming wise to the fact that just because you have an undergrad degree doesn't mean you're a smart individual, it just means you can go through the motions.

Why bother going to college at all?
Take that 50-60k and start your own business.
