We've just been reading your review and we want to let you know that we still feel that you are a superstar student! We know that somewhere between starting and success something happened that caused you to lose faith in our system, anytime this happens we all feel mortified that either through our actions or the actions of the staff that work here someone will not fulfill their dream of becoming a creator. 

Just in case anyone reads this who is thinking about hiring you or researching you online, we want to list out some of the awesome accomplishments you had while you were here, because you worked diligently and that should be recognized.

You always came in with a friendly smiling personality, which is difficult to do as taking 16 weeks to intensely learn a new skill can wear on anybody.
When you started bringing in freelance clients for yourself and Richard (while you were still students), we were more than happy to open up our space to you guys. We were incredibly impressed that you were able to go out and start your own business from scratch. 
We loved watching you take the time out of your day to help other students who were not as advanced as you. Which is why we were hoping you would help out as a TA. 

I know you were not able to start the jobs program because of the withdrawal but we really do believe in your potential, we would be more than happy to sit down with you one on one again and plot out a course where you could start the jobs program and get hired. 

I have pasted the Grit Guarantee below so you can see that as long as you complete a set number of items and are still not hired in 6 months you get a full refund. 

Otherwise please feel free to call us at 415-530-1557.

GRIT GUARANTEE. This Contract will terminate automatically upon completion by Codify Academy of the Services required by this Contract. Students that have not been hired within 6 months after the 16th week of technical training are entitled to a full refund provided they have completed the requirements outlined in student graduation criteria.

STUDENT GRADUATION CRITERIA. The following is required and expected of the student:
Complete 100% of pre-work before coming to first class
Read and/or code for a minimum of 20 hours per week
Complete one project per week
Post each completed project to Facebook via Codepen
Pull and Push to Github at least once a day (starting week 3)
Create a Portfolio - complete portfolio checklist by week 12 in order to graduate and receive certificate
Post 6 projects into that portfolio by week 12
Attend at least 14 of the 16 in-person classes - can't miss 2 in a row
developer profile (portfolio and linkedIn) completed and approved @ week 12
Company Intro Files (resume and cover letter) reviewed and completed @ week 12
Track applications on excel sheet @ 20 applications per week starting 13
Attend 12 Interview Preparation sessions (at least 1 biweekly)

Dear Glen,

All of our contracts allow for a 30 day refund and we stop charging as soon as you declare that you're dropping out of the course. You should not have been charged again and should definitely not have been charged additional interest. If you were, please reach out to me about it as soon as you can, (925) 876-3287.

Matt Brody
