DePaul is a great school, but not very affordable.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I love DePaul's graduate program in school counseling. All of the professors are knowledgeable in the subject area and are respected in the field of School Counseling. They are excellent support systems. The only con I have is how expensive it is to live downtown Chicago!

The pros are you have amazing opportunities to advance your career. The faculty is all about teaching practical information that expands upon pre-existing knowledge, as well as conduits to new information to help direct your career interests beyond what you have initially hoped. There is also an amazing study abroad component laced throughout the school of public service that offers a comparative aspect to your education that I don't thank many graduate programs offer. The cons are: some of the professors are sometimes difficult to get in touch with, or maybe blase when it comes to their feed back on your work so you really have to hound some of them at times in order to get the best bang for your buck. Overall it is a wonderful program and I feel very blessed to have been accepted into the School of Public Service at DePaul.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

I have truly truly enjoyed going to DePaul. It's amazing the amount of networking that you can do and how there are classmates from around the world, especially China. Also, the majority of professors truly care about their students and are willing to help them with either homework or career advice.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

DePaul's school counseling program is the only one in the state of Illinois that is TSCI affiliated. This will be a major plus when searching for a position after graduation.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: This is a great program especially if you are interested in public interest. The student community here is not competitive; everyone helps each other out. The school has a good reputation in Chicago, and it is located right by the Chicago Bar Association and court houses. It's in a great location in the loop by all major El routes. Cons: There is limited study space within the law school, but it is located right by a huge public library, other universities with accessible libraries, and other DePaul buildings with study areas.
