I am considering applying to EMU to pursue a second bachelors degree in Computer Science and I would appreciate feedback from the MGoCommunity on their perceptions of the advisability of said plan.
First off, before anyone suggests it, I am not considering applying to UM because I am 38 years old and an Ohio resident so I probably would not be accepted for a post-bac degree and even if I were accepted I couldn't afford to pay $35 K/year for out-of-state tution.
Does anyone have personal knowledge (either as an EMU grad themselves or knowing an EMU grad) of the employment prospects for EMU grads in SE Michigan? I know that EMU is NOT a nationally respected school, but does a degree from EMU have enough "juice" locally for it to be a decent investment?
In addition, can anyone provide insight into the housing situation in Ypsi vis-a-vis good neighborhoods vs. dear-God-please-don't-let-me-get-hit-over-the-head-with-a-sock-full-of-quarters neighborhoods?
