“I knew several people who were going to NU, and I saw how quickly they were going through it. It felt right. It felt like it was going to fit my lifestyle, and I was going to be able to achieve what I wanted to achieve with them. When I first was considering and applying for my master’s program, I was hesitant. I just found out I was pregnant. I was also working, and I was a wife. So I was like, ‘There’s no way I can add one more thing.’ But National allows you to add one more thing. It’s doable!”
