I just read all the negative reports about DeVry University on this website and I must make a general rebuttal on behalf of DeVry. I have been attending this school for one year and I love everything about it. The professors are great and very knowledgeable, the classes are very challenging, the financial aid and student services people are always available and always helpful. I am truly shocked by the negative reports I am reading. I am not sure what DeVry campuses the previous authors are going to, but it certainly cannot be my particular campus!
I am also not sure why the previous reports on this website state that there is fraudulent activity in the financial aid offices of DeVry. I have not experienced this NOR has any employee at DeVry ever promised me "free money" or a quick and easy degree. They make sure I know that I have to pay my student loans back, I had to sign a master promissory note (required by FAFSA), and DeVry actually just did an audit of my FAFSA and my 2010 taxes to make sure that I was not lying on my FAFSA in order to get more grant or student loan money.
The classes here are very difficult and I take offense at the people who said the classes are super easy and are a joke. This takes away from all the hours and hours of studying that I have done in order to get As in my classes at DeVry. An example of some of my classes and my respective grades: Statistics 220 (got a B), Business Law 420 (got an A), Financial Accounting 212 (got an A), Advanced Composition (got an A), College Algebra 092 (got an A). These classes were some of the most difficult courses I have every taken and I already have a college degree from another brick and mortar school!
Wow everyone. Please do your own research on this school before you believe what disgruntled people are posting here. DeVry is an awesome school, it is not a "diploma mill", the professors are unbelievably intelligent, and the courses are very very challenging. My algebra professor alone is brilliant! He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from Rice University.
DeVry is a great school. I am so thankful I picked it over a state school where you cannot even get the classes you need because state schools are so cheap.
