Okay here's my situation. I have an undergrad in Math and I have been unemployed for 5 months. I have been trying to get a software job (ideally development - I'm sun certified programmer, self taught) but I don't have experience so I haven't had any luck, of course.
So I've been seriously considering going back to school, which I thought I might have done anyway. I live in Chicago and I am looking at DePaul, and I can start like soon which is appealing (unemployed and very bored, remember? Also, I visited and talked to an advisor and I was impressed with what they have to offer). But I worried I'm rushing into this. So my questions are:
Will I be able to find a job w/ a masters in CS or Software Development?
Is the school you go to really important? (Should I jump into DePaul's program because I know I can, or should I hold out and apply to better ranked schools next year?)
Has anyone heard good or bad thing about DePaul's IT programs?
Any advice would be appreciated.
