    You Get What You Pay For

    Avocademy is $2k.  Their career program is $5-6k.  Bottomline: Don't be fooled.  Avo is a numbers game.  They have more students than they can accommodate.  They have revolving Mentors, so you never get the same one or personalize time to get clarification on assignments or their kickbacks.  I defended myself as a student, that I wanted to learn & taught; not barked at or just told what to do.  Changing careers, I wanted to make sure I knew my stuff.  But Avo saw that as being a diff...

    Hi Monique,

    I understand that you are upset because you were denied admission into the Career Jumpstart program. Admission to the program is based on 3 things: your performance in the UX/UI Foundations program, completing the application to the Career Jumpstart Program, and your Design Challenge. This is outlined in the UX/UI Foundations program at the beginning, halfway through and at completion.

    1. Regarding your performance in the UX/UI Foundations program, you were not penalized for asking questions or wanting to learn "too much". I privately shared with you 4-5 quotes from mentors that stated that you refused to apply the feedback given to you in the course. 

    2. Regarding your application to the Career Jumpstart Program, in the application itself you stated that it was a "pain in the a**". The admission team deemed this unprofessional.

    3. Regarding your Design Challenge, we are very lenient in grading the challenge. In the lesson that contains the application, we link you to the resources (in the course) that explain the advanced concepts of components and autolayout. The design challenge addresses: alignment, consistency, and your understanding of components and autolayout. It also requires you to record a video explaining your work - as we like to gauge your ability to explain design decisions. In this video, you once again started by saying "I'd like to start by saying this challenge was a pain in the a**" which was also deemed unprofessional.  With all that said, you did not pass the design challenge portion of the application. Lastly, paying someone to help you complete the design challenge is against application rules and stated in the application. 

    We understand your frustration but we have a commitment to all the students in the Career Jumpstart program to ensure that each student that is accepted can contribute equally to each project.

    Best Decision I've Made

    Honestly, joining Avocademy's UX/UI Design foundation course and subsequently, the Career Jumpstart program was the best decision I made. When I was considering a career change to UX/UI Design I weighed all my options - BootCamp, degree program, or trying to be self-taught. I decided to join a Bootcamp, specifically Avocademy based on its great rate, unlimited mentorship, and length of the program. I wanted to learn the skills quickly and be ready to join the market as soon as possible. ...

    Best Course Since Graduating College

    This bootcamp has been the most straightforward way for me to understand UX and UI Design by far! I have tried to learn through the Google certification before this, but it lacked the mentorship that I got with Avocademy. Having constant feedback was a game-changer for helping me piece together the information I did not understand before. Plus everyone on the team is very understanding and beyond helpful with the feedback.  They have a great number of valuable resources, such as the Mast...

    helpful, eye-opening, supportive

    Throughout my experience doing UX foundations through Avocademy, I felt very supported by all of the mentors. I was expecting it to be like my online university courses I've taken by it was so much more helpful and supportive than any of my actual college courses were when they were online. Prior to this course I have 0 design experience. I feel as though this whole course was extremely eye-opening and I feel more prepared to continue my journey as a UX designer!

    My Amazing Avocademy Experience!

    Thoughtful bootcamp with great attention and resources

    I've had a great experience with Avocademy so far and I think its a great value for money. I completed the foundations course in December and I really struggled to stay on task because of outside work and complications in my personal life and I really appreciated the way they continued to reach out and work with me on a timeline to make sure I got through the material. The course is full of great information and resources but my favorite thing has been the quality mentor feedback and the...

    Great Introduction to UX/UI

    I would 100% recommend the Foundations course at Avocademy to learn essential skills needed to work in the UX/UI field. The price is reasonable and the mentor guidance provided was essential. I also liked the flexibility to work around my schedule, allowing me to work and take care of my family's needs.
