And she lives in a suburb of the University of Wisconsin
The young lady has excellent tech/vocation school options in Madison (she's in a suburb) as well as the University of Wisconsin. Why would she want to take online classes from Milwaukee, a city about 150 km away? The MATC online questionnaire to see if you should take online classes would have weeded her out if she bothered to take it, and answered honestly.
Now that the tv station has gotten her operational problems removed, it would be interesting to have a followup story on how she did with it this spring semester.
