My CalSouthern Experience

I was working full-time and chasing after a Doctoral degree. I was able to work in the middle of the night, I could work at first thing in the morning, I could work before the sun came up, or whatever and that was the only way I think I possibly could have done this rather than showing up to a brick-and-mortar facilities.
