    General Assembly is an awesome bootcamp, if a bootcamp is what you're seeking. In the three month immersive, we've covered a ton of Data Science topics. I went from hardly using the command line to being able to use a variety of python libraries to query databases, scrape web data, clean and organize data, find trends and patterns in it, build models to analyze and predict it, and communicate results visually from that. This makes up the foundation of data science, and is definitely not something I could have done at the beginning of the course. 

    GA is not a Masters program. If you're looking for in depth theoretical analysis and deep dives into lots of microsubjects, you may be better served in a longer program at a university. If what you're looking for is a rapid fire survey of the relevant topics and the ability to dig deeper yourself into the topics that catch your interests, then it's awesome. You'll definitely be able to find your niche and your passions and participate in activities to support that, and they're helpful with finding and providing resources (like books) to further this pursuit. You will definitely come away with a toolkit that is highly applicable to the field. 

    I will say that my experience is in the pilot program of the immersive. There are things to be ironed out, specifically in clarity in the curriculum and overall course flow. However I do know that the administration and instructors are aware of this and are actively working to refine this for the next cohort. I see the other immersives around here and their curriculum is very finely tuned, so I know that this is headed to a great place, and quickly. 

    Be clear about your needs and make sure that you're a fit for the place. If you're willing to work independently and quickly and get a jump start in the field, this program sets you up for success. They won't hold your hand, but they will give you the tools you need. It's a learn by doing, hands on type of place. If that's how you learn best, I think you could do great things here. 

    Oh, and the Outcomes team to help with job assistance - again, you get out what you put in. They won't seek you out necessarily, but they are always willing to provide feedback and support when asked. They structure activities throughout the course and if you hold yourself accountable to their timeline, you'll have a solid job hunting kit ready to go by the end of the course. Take advantage of this!

    General Assembly has bitten off way more than they can chew with their Data Science Immersive program. We are told the one new instructor we finally got, weeks after the first one quit, does know what he is doing. However, I am not really sure since he has the TA cramming on the weekends to teach us material and then isn't here when she can't answer the questions we have.

    They are also getting ready to recruit for the next running of the Data Science Immersive which is completely laughable at this point. If you are looking at it, save your money. Either do the PT program or wait to see if GA is still offering this a year from now.

    At this point I am just sticking around for the career assistance because I do need a job after this and I am really curious to see how they are actually going to find those of us that stuck around meaningful jobs given how poorly we are being prepared for them.

    The range and depth of content was perfect for a 'beginner' to enter the world of data science. It also provides a good opportunity for devs (who already have a good understanding of programming) to explore types of business problem they may not have been exposed to before.

    I would recommend to get the most out of the course participants spend 6 months (c. 100 - 200 hours) making sure they understand the basic of Python and stats before enrolling. There were some members on the course who hadn't done this and they still learnt a lot - but probably found it more difficult to keep up.
