Is Devry a national college, or is it just local, here in our area?
thank you

No, they are definitely national. They have about 100 locations all over the country. I think there is even a location in Canada. I love their new commercial on TV. The one with the 5 am scholar. It is very touching and realistic about how much work it takes to get a degree.

They do have one over in Canada. I see commercials all the time. I've always been weary though due to the excessive advertising (or so it seems). Does Devry have a good reputation?

I once considered getting my Computer degree at Devry, however, I haven't read many favorable reviews on the school.
I've also read that many employers don't view a degree from Devry as favorable as a degree from a traditional 4-year college. Keep in mind that Devry is a for-profit school and most for-profit schools don't have good reputations due to their recruitment tactics and other policies.

Devry is literally all over the place. I don't know if that's really good since they are so common. Your employer may think you are not unique. Is that possible?

I don't think they would consider you not to be unique, but after doing some research I found that for profit schools like Devry are NOT looked very highly upon. Their focus is on making money and not on education. I would suggest looking elsewhere, personally.
