    Thorough, expensive, and fast-paced.

    I started the Flatiron program back in August of 2022. I was a Mortgage Loan Officer who was looking to pivot my business experience into a more technical role where I could merge my soft skills into a more technical field. I was referred to the Flatiron program by a fellow Loan Officer who was also interested in moving into a more technical role. He convinced me that the program was worth the price tag. ($16,900 is what I paid for the start of my program.) I left my job and started the ...

    Got me my dream job

    Like many others have said, what you get out of the bootcamp experience is what you put into it. They will support you but no one will hold your hand — you need to be highly-motivated and interested in the discipline you're studying. However, I would also add that the reality is it is also what you bring into it. By that I mean you will be far more likely to land a decent job in a reasonable timeframe out of bootcamp if you have impressive and relevant higher education credentials and/or...

    Part-Time Software Engineering

    I have always had an interest in software engineering growing up, but I ended up in another career field because I felt that I didn't know much about the tech industry. After 4+ years as a Physical Therapist Assistant, I decided I wanted to change my career path and thought about pursuing my doctorate in Physical Therapy or becoming a Physician's Assistant. The overwhelming thought of putting myself in so much more debt and many more years of school made me decide to look elsewhere. The ...

    What you put in is what you get out

    I very much enjoyed my Flatiron School experience! (For full transparency, I just signed an offer after 2.5 months of searching so I'm feeling particularly positive right now!) The instructors and curriculum did a great job of setting guide rails to success. Do not think this is not hard work or a commitment, but if you commit yourself to this and spend extra time you can leave in a good position to find an entry level job in tech, while acknowledging that getting your foot in the door i...

    Software Engineering

    I completed the life, full time software engineering bootcamp this year (15 weeks, full time 9-6). Overall, I would recommend the program. I thought it was very well organized, and the materials were educational and easy to follow. I would do the program again, because I do not think I would have been able to learn the material as quickly on my own, and I attribute this to the pace of the program, instructor support, and coding challenges/projects which held me accountable to keep up. I ...

    Part Time Flex-You're left on your own

    In this school, the part-time flex program, it is self-directed. And they mean it. You are left to your own devices. The only help you get is from former students who are paid $20 an hour to answer a question if you by chance get stuck but I have gotten timed out in those chat calls. Several didn't want to share the screen to help you through the lab in Visual Studio, etc. Before class even starts you are given 75-100 hours of pre-work to finish no matter if you're part-time or full-time...

    Hello,
    My name is Alavi Ahnaf I start cybersecurity analyst program in January 2021. I graduate it in April 2021. I did my best in cyber security analyst program, It was extremely hard for me because they don't provide any kind of sources which means they don't have any good professors or help from anyone at all. In this program you're pretty much in your own. If you are someone who can do things in your own than this is for you. But, if you're someone who's visual leaner ...

    Software Engineering

    Overall, I'm happy with Flatiron School as they even helped me land a job after I graduated. The curriculum is challenging and getting the projects done is not as easy as it may sound. You have to study to be successful. The only problem I can think of is an inconsistency between cohort leads. I've had to change cohorts a few times due to personal issues and had some bad experiences with some teachers. I would recommend FS to improve on the teacher's consistency. Other than that, it was ...

    I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in cyber.  Great foundational knowledge that opens a lot of possibilities within the security realm.  The full-time course is extremely challenging although worth the fight.  You definitely learn how to self study which will prepare you for post graduation work thats necessary for job placement.  I personally went in more of a pen testing direction and in hindsight maybe would have taken their cyber engineering course instead.  BUT, ...

    Amazing Experience

    About two years ago I decided that I wanted to make a major change in my life and  move into software engineering. I was pretty upset with work at the time and exhausted. I started researching how I could learn to code and came across Flatiron. I was a little hesitant because of all the promises and success stories I was seeing -- could it really be that good? On top of that the price was a little steep and the landing page seemed market-y and kind of turned me off.
