"I graduated in the Spring of 2017 with a degree in Computer Science from a major Midwestern university. Then, in the summer and fall, I took a [Schank] course. What I learned in those 20 weeks was vastly more applicable and helpful than what I learned in my 4 years at the university. I came out job ready and excited to learn even more at my new job. 1/6th the time, 1/20th the money, and immeasurably more educational than university. [It] is the best move in education I've ever taken."
