Hi Elizabeth, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We regret your experience did not meet your expectations. We understand what a big life decision applying and enrolling in our course is for our students. You are correct that due to student feedback, the start date for the August cohort that you were originally enrolled in was postponed until 2019; this deferment will allow us to make modifications to the course curriculum in order to deliver a robust program for your future training needs.

We apologize for not initiating a more prompt refund following the cancellation of your class, as we know you made a substantial investment in your education. Unfortunately, we could not begin your refund process until after we verified a transfer could not be made to the remaining UX/UI cohort. When our admissions coordinator emailed you back in regard to processing your reimbursement, we did note that the request could take a few weeks - as evidenced by your refund being successfully issued on Monday. We strive to be communicative throughout every step of our process and understand a swift and responsive reply on our part could have provided a more seamless experience for you.

We are looking forward to reintroducing the UX/UI program in the upcoming year and hope you will reconsider us once again. We are constantly striving to improve our student experience, so we truly value your input in this matter. We would love to hear from you directly to further discuss your concerns. If you would like, please reach out to us at (949) 214-4016.

Hi Chris, thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're always striving to improve the student experience, and feedback like yours helps us do just that.

We are glad to hear you had a great experience with our instructional team. We greatly admire the support and dedication our team members put into helping every student in our program. 

Because we teach such a wide array of technologies in a short amount of time, our curriculum focuses on giving students a high level, hands-on understanding of the topics covered in class, with the goal of students expanding on that understanding outside of class. While we do begin with the fundamentals, our program does quickly dive into technologies that are in high demand in today's market. We are constantly evaluating our curriculum and we use student feedback and market research to make changes regularly. While we are proud of curriculum and its ability to give students a very strong set of web development skills, we do regret to hear that the curriculum did not go as in-depth into the fundamentals as you would have liked. 

Our career services are built on the principle of empowerment, equipping students with the soft skills needed to be employer competitive through readiness services like resume support, technical interview training, portfolio reviews, and 1:1 coaching. While we do not offer guaranteed job placement, many of our students were very successful in the job search, with students from this cohort securing employment in various roles like Data Engineer, Computer Programmer, and Front End Developer at companies like Hyper Disk Marketing, Global Net Solutions, Target Specialty Products, Cake, Toshiba America Medical Systems, and more.

Our goal is for all students to leave our program feeling equipped for success. If there are any other additional learning materials or assistance that we can provide you with at this time, please reach out to me directly at (949) 214-4016, so that we can discuss further.

Congratulations on completing the boot camp, Joel! We’re glad to hear that your instructors, TAs and Career Director were so helpful, and provided you with the guidance you needed. As you mention, students should expect to dedicate an appropriate amount of their time to reviewing concepts and practicing their skills outside of the classroom. This is an important insight for future students to know, so we really appreciate this feedback.

It’s terrific that you had such a positive experience with this program, and we hope you’re proud of all the hard work you put into learning these valuable new skills. We’re wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review! Insights such as these are very useful to future boot camp students. Although our admissions process is designed to be as painless as possible, our programs aren’t open enrollment. Because we want to make sure that students who enroll in our program are properly suited to the demands involved, we do screen our applicants with a coding test and academic interview before they are enrolled into a course.

We’re so glad to hear that you’re having such a positive experience with this program, it’s wonderful that the part-time schedule was manageable with your ongoing career as this schedule was designed for working professionals, just like you.

We’re thrilled that you are enjoying the career services, curriculum, and that you are becoming comfortable coding. It’s wonderful to see our  students develop a passion for programming. As you mention, the in-person classroom experience is an important part of our program and allows for invaluable opportunities to ask questions and collaborate with peers, so it’s excellent that our team has been able to provide you with the guidance and support you need to be successful in this program.

We hope you're proud of all of the hard work you’ve put into this program, and we can’t wait to see where your new skills will take you. We wish you nothing but the best moving forward.

Hi Natalie,
 
Thank you for reaching out. We sincerely apologize for any miscommunication or confusion that occurred during your admissions experience.
 
Once a student is accepted into the program, they do receive an email explaining that in order to guarantee a seat in the class and enroll, the next step is to pay the deposit. At this point in time, you are correct that no agreement or confirmation of enrolling has been made. Students also receive an electronic agreement to sign and return should they move forward with payment/enrollment. This trusted system was chosen not only to make it easier for students to digitally sign the documents rather than having to print and scan, but also to facilitate record keeping. We are sorry if this digital format was not what you were expecting and have made a note to explain better to all students in the future. We appreciate your pointing this out.
 
If a student declines the program, we always call the student to learn how we can better our program. We try to maintain a relationship with even those applicants that choose to pursue other schools. The important item for us is that you are getting the education you seek. You mentioned via email that you had decided to pursue learning to code through other avenues, our advisor simply meant to congratulate you on that endeavor and let you know that our program would be here should you ever change your mind.

Regarding the auto-charge email notification, you should not have received that email as it was intended for an enrolled student. As you mentioned, we did not have your credit card information on file and so no charge could have been made. With many emails sent each day, human error does happen and we apologize for the alarm it caused.
 
We are constantly working to improve our processes and overall experience, and we thank you for your feedback.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, Anonymous. This program is definitely challenging and fast-paced as you noted, and we're glad that you thrived in learning JavaScript and were able to use those skills to create impressive projects. We are very proud of the instructional team, so it's great that you had a good experience with them too.

A100% positive student experience is our number one priority, so we appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on our curriculum and career support services.

We understand that you wanted to dive into languages like .Net, Python, and PHP, however, our course curriculum did indicate that those languages would not be taught in the program. Our curriculum is constantly updated to be in line with market demands, and currently, our regional specialization includes C#/ASP.Net. While we do not expressly cover .Net, Python, or PHP, our program prides itself on teaching students how to learn, so that students will have a strong foundation to easily learn other programming languages after graduation.

Our career services are built on the principle of empowerment. We help to prepare our students for the job search process by providing them with the necessary tools and support that will not only help them in their immediate future as they move forward from our program, but also in the long-term development of their careers.

The services we offer for career preparation are constantly improving, and our students' experiences can vary as we continue to evolve and implement feedback. Though we do not know when you completed the boot camp, our career services curriculum has always included 1:1 coaching with a Career Director, technical interview preparation, portfolio feedback, resume support, tech panels, and final project events where students gain insight and feedback from industry professionals. 

During the program, we emphasize networking and encourage students to work on projects outside of class that can further their skills and improves their marketability. Our team strives to be clear about the scope of our career services from the beginning so that our students understand how they can get the most out of this aspect of the program.

We regret to hear that you did not have an overall positive experience with our program, and we would like the opportunity to speak with you and determine what additional support we can provide you with at this time. Please reach out to me directly at (949) 214-4016 so that we can further address your concerns.
