Hello, I'm in NY (not the city) and am out of highschool, looking to get into the computer forensics field. While I have been mainly looking at DeVry for schooling in the future, I'm wondering what opinions there are about such. I wish for the best COST EFFECTIVE education. I don't have much to my name so money is a bit of an issue, which is one of the main reasons I've been looking into DeVry, because of it's price and credibility in the IT world.

Please, give me any insight on anything you may know and any experience you have about schooling and training. It would be a great help.

Not sure how far upstate you are, but if you want to take on site classes, I know they have them with the labs at the Paramus, NJ campus.
No matter what you will need Financial Aid, so get that started (this is something you need no matter what school you go to).

Honestly, if you're just out of high school and tight with finances, joining the military is a good option. You can get experience in things like Counter Intel, SIGINT, or as an MP. While on active duty you can take online classes with full coverage, or if going the reserves route they have tuition assistance through the state of unit. Plus you get the GI bill which covers everything for 3 years.
Anyway, not playing recruiter, but it's a suggestion.

I also believe there are scholarship options for people majoring in CF, through other government agencies.
