Bachelor’s degree is a bachelor’s degree right?
If you like DeVry and it’s a good fit for you then go for it. But, since you’re already questioning your choice, you may want to consider some more options before you make a decision.
Don’t rule out those “internet universities”, they are the way of things to come and some are very outstanding (and some aren’t). Explore all of your options and make a decision based on what is best for you now.
It depends on who you talk to. DeVry has managed to acquire North Central regional accreditation, God only knows how. In general, accreditation is simply a credit-sharing agreement between colleges in a particular region and doesn’t always denote quality. Especially for the last few years.
The problem is that DeVry is not considered anything but a trade school by established universities. Its engineering programs, for example, are not accredited by ABET, which is in charge of examining engineering and technology programs. DeVry seemed quite proud of not being accredited by them, but other schools don’t share the same opinion.
Tell ya the truth, none of this matters much to anyone but educational snobs like me. However, we’re well-represented throughout society, I’m afraid, and DeVry has managed to make a lot of enemies throughout the rest of the educational establishment. It’s possible that the reputation of the school will improve with time.
As far as getting a job goes, you’re probably just fine. If a particular position requires a bachelor’s degree, then you’ve got one and it should count like any other. But if you’re comparing schools out on the golf course, it’s possible that you’ll have to fight for the reputation of yours; it doesn’t have great respect right about now.
Neither does U Phoenix, and the rest of those Internet schools. It might change.
Here’s the basic thing. Did you get the following:
1/2 year Earth Science (Astronomy, Geology, Chemistry)
1/2 year Life Science (Biology, Oceanology, Botny)
1 Year Algebra/Trig
1 Year English grammar and Composition
2 Years History/Politics
1 Year Fine Arts
This is above and beyond high. You had to have gotten these in colllege.
If you did not, no graduate school will consider you.
