Congrats, George! Awesome work.

The choice of studying full-time (and quitting a job or reducing work hours) vs. part-time is fascinating, especially if you have the living expenses covered for a bit like you did. It’s probably easier to learn when immersed, and definitely more enjoyable when not piled on top of a full-time job. The cash flow analysis varies from person to person with opportunity costs and future salaries but I’d bet they turn out positive for most Udacity students sooner rather than later with the industries that they target. Then more immediate happiness and job satisfaction, of course. You made the right choice it seems!
