Most Helpful Review for DePaul University

It's probably easy for most people to slack off in classes, but once you start it's hard to break those bad habits. If you keep your head in the game and prioritize, your classwork at DePaul should be no sweat. Advisers will place you in classes that will challenge you, but that you will be able to keep up with as well. Aside from the classroom though, I'm learning a lot about myself, my friends, and different communities and lifestyles. Chicago is a great place for a classroom. There's always something more to learn, especially when you're in the city.

    This college is definitely worth the investment. Even though it is a private university and has a high tuition cost, the school offers a variety of renewable scholarships and grant. And the most important part is that after attending the school there will definitely be a job waiting for you upon graduation.

    DePaul University has been spectacular with helping me enroll and has a wide variety of majors that will interest just about anybody. The curriculum for most of - if not all - the majors satisfy a number of requirements for entry into post graduate schools (i.e. Medical School). DePaul also has counselors that can help students with any problem.

    This school has a great academic reputation, in fact, its business school ranks higher than Stanford's. I believe that this University is an overall great investment because you will definitely get an excellent job and a plethora of opportunities. They offer so many resources to make their students successful and are located right in the middle of Chicago, Illinois, a nest of various top-companies. I would recommend this college to any student that has a drive to be successful no matter what their major is.

    DePaul University has all the resources you need -- well at least when it comes to the College of Computing and Digital Media, which I attend. I don't know about the other areas of study, but in that one I am certain that anyone going into that field will have all the tools they need to succeed. The teachers also know what they're doing, and are ready to help you out should you need it.
