Devry's degree credibility...
I am considering going to DeVry to obtain a Masters degree in MIS and am trying to research how credible DeVry's degrees are. I've seen that most colleges that are only offered online are not very credible at all, such as University of Phoenix. I would be taking half of the classes onsite in Cincinnati and I'm trying to find out if it is going to be worth while.
Does anyone have any feedback on the credibility of a degree from DeVry? How likely would an employer consider hiring someone with a DeVry degree over a degree from another college?
I am trying to obtain a degree for status rather than learning, so I'm not worried about how challenging the classes are. I have been in the field for a couple of years and lack the corporate experience I need to get a good job so I plan on getting a college degree to enhance my chances of getting a better career. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

University of Phoenix is one of the best known and im almost sure is a nationally accredited school. The "reputation" may be questionable in some areas depending on the instructors a recruiter has had and the quality level of the candidates that have come through the doors.
Personally, its more how YOU see the degree program and if YOU think you would benefit more from a traditional or online setting.
