Grad school advice?

<p>I am a working civil engineer in construction management in Chicagoland and graduated from Purdue with my BSCE in 2009, but I feel the need to pursue my MSCE with a structural engineering emphasis. I got into Purdue (which out of state tuition is rediculous), Bradley University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I got denied admission to UIUC. I am trying to decide if I should continue working and see if my company would support me if I go to UIC. I am sure they will support me going to UIC, my concern is the difference in reputation between my BSCE from Purdue and if I attend UIC. Does anyone have any advice or input? Both about my reputation concerns and the quality of a UIC education, and working while I work on my masters?</p>
