Overall Rating

I went to UofD Mercy and graduated on time with a BS. The degree itself has helped me get a job that is paying above average for my experience and field. The education itself was pretty good but needed to be more specific. For example, we learned about network security in the broad sense but never worked with packet sniffers and anything hands on. It would have been VERY nice to have some of my classes correspond with professional certifications. Those certifications are important in my field to get your resume in the hiring managers hands.
