Hold Devry University Inc. Accountable and Refund "ALL" Mislead Students, Not Just "Some".

When I was weighing whether or not to attend Devry University, I unfortunately relied on DeVry's claims that sounded very promising.  On one of the commercials I saw on TV stated that 90% of graduates landed in their fields and that 15% of it's graduates earned significantly more money then their counterparts.  I was sold on that fact and decided to take classes at Devry based on these stated "facts".  After graduating, I was not able to get a job in my field within the promised 6 months, and owed thousands of dollars. 

Recently, Devry was sued for making false representations and settled.  The settlement includes refunding tuitions to students who took loans out with Devry Inc.  However, if loans were taking out from a different institution, that student is not eligible for a refund.  That settlement is unfair, since I and many others were victimized by the misleading claims.  All impacted students should receive investments made by that institution, and not just a few.  When applying for loans, the person providing assistance did not provide options, but rather was handed a loan. 

I believe that FTC should be vigilant in providing fair and justifiable settlements to all parties impacted and not just the few who's loan was directly from Devry. 

I look forward to a positive response where all mislead parties will get their compensations, and not just a few.  Do right by everyone!
