Looks like someone got politically butthurt by the last version of this question—which wasn’t intended to be political (much), so let’s rephrase it without mentioning he-who-apparently-must-not be-named. In your opinion, which educational ventures... — read more

Does anyone know exactly what the relationship is between DeVry and Cogswell and why they are feeding off our resources?
Cogswell has been going through major layoffs for five years straight. Their current enrollment is under 500 students. Closer to 450. What a joke.
Cogswell is in a contract with DeVry only to get operational cashflow. The plan is to phase out campuses but still collect on FA from the government. This is what happens. Check out the Cogswell Lay Off Site : https://www.thelayoff.com/cpc... — read more
