I attended WGU specifically for some of the reasons you mentioned. I knew I could get through materials faster in a CBE program than in a traditional one. The mentor relationship worked well for me too and it definitely helped that he was not the same person grading my assignments. It took a few months to wrap my mind around it and get used to the fact that I could rely on him (my mentor) to just guide and not spend our time talking about how to do assignments etc. but I would not have had it any other way!
