A website says a College in Illinois is Not Worth Attending
It is time for high school juniors and seniors to figure out which schools they want to go to further their educations after high school. And with the rising cost of college education, you want to be really sure you're getting your money's worth, so you might want to avoid this one school in Illinois according to a financial website.
According to the financial website earnspendlive.com, there is one college in Illinois that is not worth attending: Devry University. Why does Devry, mainly an online school, get the lowest marks in the Land of Lincoln? On the site they say...
"It has a physical location in Illinois, so this is why it’s ranked as the worst in this state. In Illinois, the campus has a 20.6% graduation rate, leaving students with over $30,000 in loan debt. What we found strange is that DeVry has a high default rate, according to CollegFactual. However, students that do graduate earn a median salary of $44,100 after six years."
