Unfortunately mine didn't help, but my health issues weren't helpful either. I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Information Systems with a minor in English Writing in 2000, right when the tech bubble burst.
At this point my diploma's worthless, but at least I tried to get off disability. Still I shudder to think what would have happened when I had my 4th open heart surgery in 2008. I was unable to do squat for 6 months. I wasn't even allowed to do simple things like laundry, shopping, etc, let alone driving, and my lungs hurt like crazy, particularly if I tried to get out in the cold. Even with the employee leave act, how I would have survived 6 months without a paycheck and no health care is beyond me.
I just accept my disability at this point.
Still I get ticked they made me take 2 1/2 years of COBOL back in 1996-2000. Another point is my degree was from a "State University" Clarion University of PA, so that doesn't mean much in the IS field.
