“The program exceeded anything I would have imagined. I felt like I was involved and connected and that the professors cared about my success, even though I wasn't there physically. The scientific computing classes allowed me to switch jobs — it would have been really difficult for me to get a job as data scientist without a master’s degree in applied math.”
