After skimming through the numerous ads for bootcamps around the Denver area, I started to look at real degrees. Eventually, I came across CU Boulder's online program. It stood out to me because of its rigorous and respected nature. I liked the fact that I was held to the same standards as an on-campus student, but I didn't have to quit my job or scale back hours to do it.
