    I participated in the remote online Product Management course that spanned the course of 10 weeks. During which I had the opportunity to learn about the product lifecycle, how to conduct user interviews, and how to effectively present my discovery findings. There was also ample time during class to practice what we were learning with other classmates, learning from each others ideas as well as networking with one another. I thought the instructor was knowledgeable, patient, and engaging to learn from. I would recommend GA to anyone who is looking to take the next step in their personal and professional growth.

    Your experience is a hit or miss. Depends on how lucky you are. I was not so lucky but I found a job. That said, I DO NOT recommend GA. Here's why:

    1. Push to know your instructor before paying and LinkedIn research your instructor before starting
    The admissions team said they didn't know who would teach my cohort, I should have delayed paying until I knew. My instructor may be a great designer but had zero corporate experience. He started his own design company and while that is amazing, he couldn't bring a lot of relatable experiences for our course. He also read off slides directly and was caught by us a few times for not paying attention to our presentations. The guy also never had feedback for us, he would only parrot our instructor associates' feedback. 

    2. If your cohort size is over 20 students, DON'T DO IT.
    Our cohort was at almost 30. Imagine sitting through/grading 30 projects. Or answering students' questions. We did not get the attention needed to succeed. A lot of us had to rely on each other/ Google.

    3. Post bootcamp help isn't helpful
    The career coach is given the tools to hand us. They can be helpful for building resumes but that's really it. The coach is also assigned to multiple cohorts so the ability to help is also limited. Our career coach was more like a therapist for us, she's loved for her empathy not for being our coach.

    4. My final client project cost us $60+ USD.
    For our final project with a real-world client, we each had to pay our Adobe account, meaning our final project was $60+USD. and GA did not want to help fund this. If this is the case, why had students a client who uses a paid program?! Yes, $60 is not a lot to some people but as a person who is unemployed doing bootcamp full time- this money mattered. 

    5. HR told us if we weren't satisfied, we can always quit/pause.
    The good thing about GA is that at the halfway point- they ask for feedback. After HR read through our feedback, she sent a message that reminded us that we had the option to quit. The right answer was to say they were going to internally discuss changes. This was infuriating as I was there risking a lot to change my career. To this day, a handful of us still have the screenshot of this now deleted post.

    6. GA asked me for more tuition money, they did not honor the NY discount that was still in place when I paid.

    Not only was my cohort delayed, at the time I paid, their website and the admissions team still had the deal where you pay full upfront and then receive a discount of $450. Before I started boot camp, the NY secondary law was removed however, it was still on their website. Instead of offering a one-time scholarship, they asked me for the money. When I asked if I can have a refund and convert to a free/discounted interest payment plan- they said no. So my hands were tied. 


    Overall, money aside, I think GA is relying on their big name. Their quality is not up to par with their in-person bootcamp. While I was able to find a job within the 3-month mark, I contribute 30% of it to GA (the coursework) and the rest of it to my peers. We bonded over struggling together, presenting to each other, giving feedback on our portfolios together, and recommending jobs to each other.

    The Python course was great! Easy to follow along and the professor was incredibly knowledgeable and skilled at guiding us through the course. It was a lot of material to cover and it only brushes on some topics but I understood it was never meant to be in-depth, which was great for me because it gave me enough grit to get it started and seek out more knowledge on my own. There's definitely a large component of discipline I had to have, being a non-programmer entering this course meant I had to put a lot of my own time  learning the basics of Python and it's many nuisances. In the end, the course was well taught and well structured. I'm happy with the results and would recommend to anyone that's a self-starter and motivated individual.

    My experience at GA was extremely positive. I was very impressed with GA's team knowledge, with their way of teaching and how the course was correctly structured and timely-measured. These guys they really know what they are doing and working on. Their resources and availability to help the students to understand re-explaining what as much as needed in order to make sure that the concepts are understood it's something remarkable. If you are looking to give your first-deep-steps in Data Science, this must be one of the best places to take them.

    I really enjoyed taking the course and learning so much about UX Design. While I came from a Graphic Design background, the instructors were so thorough and helpful when it came to learning a whole new side of design. Especially for my classmates who maybe had no design/ artsy/ creative backgrounds. It is a lot of work jam packed into a short period, so make sure you don't have a lot of other responsibilities/ priorities. You will occasionally have to pull all nighters to get things done. But the instructors are great listeners, and are always willing to answer questions. While I am still currently looking for job placement, I feel secure that I will find one with the knowledge I learned and the support of my career coach.

    Personally, their style didn't work for me. There are slides provided, the instructor briefly reads through them and then splits us into groups to work. They encouraged us to google if we got stuck, but I wanted guided instruction. There weren't any back-up instructors available so when our instructor became sick we lost that day of instruction. They tried to do make-up days, but they didn't work for most of the students and only made-up a fraction of the lost instruction. It didn't feel like a supportive environment that wanted to see us thrive, instead we needed to google solutions.

    I'm based in Singapore and I enrolled into this part time course after seeing this institution being recommended by IMDA Singapore (Sg's Media Development Authority). Prior to this, I just graduated with a Bachelor in Communication Design. However, I'd like to expand my skillset and learn more about UI/UX design so that I'll be able to land a job in this field. 
     
    This part time course was held twice a week via Zoom over the period of 3 months. I personally felt that the pace was just right and the duration of each lesson was perfect (2hrs). Our instructors were professionals who have been working in the UI/UX industry for quite some time and thus, were more than qualified to lead the course. Apart from Zoom, we utilised Slack as a communication platform to reach out to fellow classmates and instructors. 
     
    As for my classmates, we all came from diverse backgrounds. Some equipped with design knowledge while some aren't. However, everyone was very supportive and shared whatever knowledge or things they found. Initially, the idea of being in a class full of working professionals whereas I was just a degree holder, felt daunting but after the first class, I found myself looking forward to my lessons because my classmates & instructors made everyone feel belonged. 
     
    In terms of the lessons, each lesson was covered in-depth and my instructors were very meticulous in explaining the concepts to ensure the lessons were well executed and understood. While the main instructor lead the lesson, the other instructor kept a lookout for any questions that appeared in the chat and would promptly address them. 
     
    During each lesson, we will have a partner exercise where we'll be paired up randomly with a classmate to discuss about the task or activity given. I really enjoyed this part of the course as it's so much easier to work in pairs and at the same time, I got to meet new people each week and learnt about their working life and experiences. It was interesting to be given a hands on opportunity to apply the knowledge taught during the lesson and from there, we'd know if we had truly understood the lesson.
     
    At the end of the course, we will present our prototype project which we have been working on, to the rest of the class. It was really fun seeing how each and everyone came up with their ideas and designed their prototypes. We were then tasked to provide feedbacks to our classmates - 1 glow & 1 grow 
     
    Overall, this course is a good start for anyone looking to have a career start or a career switch to the UI/UX field. There will be tons of resources shared by the instructors in the Slack platform. Additionally, whenever you needed extra guidance outside of lesson period, you can always schedule an appointment with any of the instructors and they will be more than happy to assist you. Would definitely recommend this to anyone interested to build a career in UI/UX.

    I decided to enroll at GA, dropped out of college, did all the hours of prework, got my GI bill approved, and was ready to go. My class moved from in-person to remote pretty early on in the process. About two weeks go by until they finally decide to tell me on the Friday before my class start date that the VA was not going to approve my GI Bill. Highly confused, I call the VA who assures me that the loan will very much be accepted and that the financing people at GA need to submit a form 1999 and put into the comments that the class was canceled due to COVID. I get put into contact with Jessica Wright, a finance coordinator at GA who tells me that the VA is not going to accept it. I explain to her what the VA told me, and she tells me that the VA does not have the full context of the difference between the SEI and SEIR courses. I told her that I talked to the VA and explained that they're different courses and the VA continued saying that it doesn't matter, if it was canceled due to COVID then it is an approved course. I also asked her for contact information to talk to someone over the phone because there was such a large discrepancy between what she was saying and what the VA was saying. She sent another email saying that no the form was not going to be submitted and again, the VA didn't have the full context. Since that email, she stopped answering me. She has ignored five or so emails from me, so I would imagine she muted the conversation and just moved on with her life.

    It wouldn't shock me at all if she was completely correct. The VA very much may not have had the full context. But why would she not provide me with the context? I don't deserve to know after throwing everything away in my life to join this program? I just want answers. It boggles my mind that she didn't have the time to explain to me what was happening, and she also doesn't have the time to submit a form that is literally two pages and just needs one signature. She only had the time to send me two emails and addressed nothing that I had sent to her. So as far as I'm concerned, my GI Bill would have been approved and GA threw away $15,000 because someone was too lazy to submit a form. Now I need to scramble and figure out what to do with my life.

    They allowed me to attend the first class and the instructor seemed fantastic. This is not a poor review of the school, only the people who manage it.

    I had a great experience at GA. My instructors were knowledgable and passionate about what they were teaching and they worked really well together, which led to a positive classroom experience. Bootcamps pack in a lot of information in a short amount of time, so you have to be good at learning things quickly or you might be at risk of falling behind and feeling overwhelmed. Luckily I also had a great group of classmates. We helped each other whenever one of us was stuck on a problem/topic. Having the support of my instructors and classmates was crucial in being able to complete the program.
    We covered many frontend and backend topics throughout the 12 weeks, such as HTML/CSS, JavaScript, React, Express, Mongo,  PostgreSQL, Ruby, and Rails. I had some knowledge of HTML and CSS before I started, which was really helpful in not feeling too overwhelmed the first week of class. One of the best skills I learned was learning how to learn new languages/frameworks. The field of software engineering is so vast that there's no way to learn everything in a classroom setting, especially in a short bootcamp. Being able to teach myself and having the confidence in knowing that I can learn new things has been the biggest help to my career post-graduation. 
    Speaking of post-graduation, the one place where I felt we could have had more support was in the job search. Throughout the course of the program there was a lot of time spent each week on what felt like general job search advice (network, have your "elevator pitch" ready, etc.). Most of this was presented in a pretty passive way and I felt like I would have preferred to spend some of that time in the classroom. Towards the end, things got more serious with resume reviews and more personalized help. Our outcomes coach would also share jobs for us to apply to in a Slack channel. Each Outcomes coach handles how they structure this part of the program differently, so your experience may vary.
    Overall, I would recommend GA but you have to understand that the courseload is not easy and you might have to put in a lot of work after class to understand the content. It would also be helpful to research what technologies you're interested in learning and find out whether the instructors of the cohort you're applying to will teach that. When I started, I didn't know enough about this field to even know what technologies I wanted to learn but the more information you have in the beginning, the better.

    I took this "boot camp" few years back they accept anyone willing to pay. I took the UX program and my instructors were promoting their DJ stuff and playing favorites(certain females who brownnosed). In my cohort we had a guy who didn't even know how to use a computer. He sold his mechanic shop to apply for this program with a promise of a six figure salary. I looked his profile up on linkedin and saw that he wasn't currently working many years later. My "career" advisor changed right as I graduated with someone who absolutely did not care about me. She just harassed me to apply to jobs and gave no help. Also while taking the course we found all course material online which was plagiarized by the instructors. YOU ARE NOT JOB READY after finishing this course no where near close to it. It felt extremely cult like with the way the instructors had everyone acting. They teach you about latest technologies as far as applications but its more of an introductory course to using these tools. I understand that you have to want this and put in the effort but the curriculum is an absolute joke. There may be better instructors at GA but obviously it's a roll of the dice. I wanted this to be read so that others understand that someone who took this "bootcamp" might be your instructor right after they finish. KEKW

    A really great program for breaking into Software Engineering! It’s fast paced but my instructors were very knowledgeable, and helped me and my fellow classmates keep up. We studied the MERN stack along with Python and Django, and created some great projects along the way. I've also gained resources I never would have had before. I'm very glad I deiced to take this boot-camp, I know I couldn't have learned this on my own especially without my great instructors help! Would recommended to most beginners who know a little bit of coding.

    Even though a tech bootcamp is very "you get what you put in" when it comes to the work and building connections, for a 13k+ price tag it is absolutely reasonable to have expectations regarding the quality of education and how you are treated by staff. Since day one, getting in touch with the individuals that you literally need to communicate with as part of the process was near impossible. Not long after I got to their outcomes stage I was hit by a car and hospitalized with broken bones and a long list of other health issues. I was trying to communicate with them as much as possible but it would be weeks before they responded to my questions, if they did at all. 

    It eventually got to a point where I knew I would need to pause my software engineering journey due to health reasons. Upon communicating this (and NOT asking for a refund btw) they threw money at me for a couple of one-off classes and told me that my outcomes coach and management would be contacting me.  

    That was over a month ago..
