We don't accept everyone and apologize we didn't accept you.

I am sorry you feel slighted, the good news is there are probably a lot of "Big Box Bootcamps" who will gladly take your money and promise to maintain the status quo of the drug war. Devschool is probably not the best fit for overly conservative, reactive students.

We prefer students who are free thinkers, focused on solutions, not problems, and most of all, people with the drive to succeed no matter what life throws your way.

We wish you luck on your future technology education!

Title: Executive Assistant
Wednesday, Aug 03 2016

Thank you very much for your comments.  Here at Devschool we are always striving to improve and welcome any feedback that we get.  First of all Devschool is an all Online Coding  Bootcamp that is operated by Jim Okelly, his assistant and a small group of part time instructors. Next you questioned the legitimacy of the school and implied that being centered in Mexico makes it a scam.  Jim is from Mexico and takes a lot of pride in giving discounts to students from less developed countries, like yourself.  How would you feel if we implied students from China are crocked?  You also seem to have an issue with the job guarantee, it tells you that Jim and his hard working staff will support you until the day you move on. By the way, so far every student has found a job, so “forever” doesn't seem that long.  I myself have never heard of a school giving you a complete refund after you have completed the course.

I am very sorry that the format of the school did not agree with you, and do regret that our refund policy bothers you, but with positions at Devschool being in such demand we need students to be sure they are prepared to go the distance and not waste our valuable time.  This is why we encourage prospective students to carefully read the web page and watch our videos before applying to be sure this is the place for them.  Every students learns best in a different way. Here at Devschool we use one particular format and not everyone will respond well to it. So we sincerely hope you better luck in your next endeavor.

Notes & Caveats:

We are very proud to announce our first-year numbers! In 2015 we graduated 16 students (Jan-Dec) and all 16 graduating students have jobs! Several of our students had work before they could even finish all of their private instructor sessions!

In our program, starting around your 40th lesson, we switch from programming to job skills, where we teach you how to interview, help you with your code challenges, and to learn what employers are looking for in new coders.
