What colleges are worth considering for my Master's degree?
I made a mistake. In 1996 I was a bright student, one year out of high school. I really didn't want more school, but faced with $5.00/hr jobs and no possibility of supporting myself, I decided to go to college. I chose DeVry University and received my Bachelor degree in Business Administration (telecommunications management) in 1999. Even though I was making more than 80K a year and flying first class on flights every week all over the world, and staying in very nice hotels, I always felt regret that I didn't choose a school for its Academic recognition. Sure I was making more than many of my Ivy League counterparts because I hopped onto technology when it was hot, but after the tech bubble crashed, and I lost my job, I wished I had gone to a "real" school. For my masters, I don't have a lot of desire to flip the degree into big bucks. I just want something that people would value...yes, I mean this in a vain way. I want to say I went to a school that is recognized just like I want to wear brand name shoes. I want the world to know that even though I have my shady DeVry degree, that I'm still solid enough to earn a "real" degree. Where can an average student go to college. I don't want a shady degree like University of Phoenix--perhaps one of the local state universities. I always liked Cal Poly San Luis Obispo...or maybe I can polish my test taking and writing skills and try for a UC. If anyone has ideas on how I can earn my masters in business/mba/finance from a school that is reputable but accessable to an average adult student let me know. By average I mean 3.5 GPA in highschool, 3.8 DeVry.

With a degree from DeVry, especially back in '99 when they probably weren't even regionally accredited, probably your only option is an MBA/MPA. MBA programs will care more about your experience than your education. That and your GMAT scores. Cal Poly SLO is much better than DeVry, but in terms of name recognition for... More

First of all while I would not consider DeVry to be my college of choice, obviously it did well for you. I would not put myself down so much about that degree... More
