The peer review was particularly brutal. It all depends on who you get. I would not do these courses if my marks were going to be on my transcript.

I enjoyed the course. It seemed geared toward folks in their early career (young) but was still useful for me during a career transition.

it was helpful to learn about things that would truly make me happy and find out that the things that will make you happy are immaterial.

I liked the course, it helped me learn a few new things. I thought that some of the rewires should have been graded not just the final.

Would like the course at a 5 if there was more general population references and less references to the young people attending Yale.

It takes practice but it's worth it. I love it when I hear the sides of the students as well and not just the professor. Thank you!
