The lock-step structure of the program is excellent. It allowed us to really build a community throughout the class, enabling us to really learn from each other and enhancing our learning experience far beyond what we would get from lectures and reading assignments alone. In our program, we also were assigned to teams for group work throughout the entire program; this was helpful as you could learn how to best complete projects around each others' work habits as well as leverage each others' strengths and weaknesses. We learned a lot from each other and helped each other to grow individually outside of the classroom.
