    Best Data Science Immersive

    Entering the data science boot camp at GA was one of the best professional and academic choices I have made. The material I was exposed is directly applicable to the demands of the industry, as I have found many leading tech companies using them. The time and money I invested in this boot camp have been worthwhile.

    The boot camp is indeed heavy on the math and stats - as it should be- after all, data scientist deal with quantitative matters. It combines practical applications of ...

    Data Science Immersive

    After graduating with a B.S. in a non-quant heavy major, I wanted to continue my education and applied to the GA DSI program.  For such a rigorous and math heavy curriculum, the technical assessment assignment only consisted of coding in SQL and then visualizing those results. If GA wanted to assess if an individual was ready for a quantitatively heavy and coding heavy program, the technical assessment should have been more centered on Statistics, Calculus, and Python instead of ...

    Digital Marketing and UX

    I've taken General Assembly courses online and offline. They're commitment to quality is obvious and consistent no matter the format or topic of the course. In every class, you're working with professionals in the field. This means you're learning applicable tools, understanding how things really work (not theroteically but realistically), and hearing the language as it's used in the industry. You get a real feel for what working in that space is like. Teachers make themselves available fo...

    General Assembly Part Time Data Analytics

    Instructors: I am so lucky to have a knowledgable instructor along with two other awesome TAs in my cohort. they are really awesome. They are really passionate about teaching and wanting students to succeed. They do know how to teach. I would suggest you to find out who the instructor is before taking this course because instructor is the key here.

    Recommandation: I wouldn't suggest you just go in there and only spend your time in the classroom. Utilizing your ...

    Wouldn't recommend

    After completing General Assembly’s full-time, 12-week WDI (Web Development Immersive) Bootcamp in San Francisco, I highly recommend choosing another bootcamp. There are far better bootcamps out there than GA that will get you where you want to be; hired as a Web Developer/Android Developer/UX..

    What General Assembly is really good at is creating a supportive and encouraging community of students and teachers that support each other and don’t pressure you beyond what ...

    A roller coaster 10 weeks

    Like all study's there are ups (fun class great insturctor and assistant) and downs (jam packed with fast moving topics to cover and semi difficult assignments to complete while working) 

    Nick ( the instructor) and Vito (assistant) were well rounded, very pro in all topics , there is never an "I don't know moment".

    Fast pace for beginners that will come out at the end ...

    Mixed instruction. Need more interaction with data scientists

    Mixed bag of instructors. Materials had a some errors. Admin staff was unresponsive at times. Not enough data scientists brought in for teaching and career insight. This could change going forward as feedback was given and the instructors for the next cohort sound potentially better. I was still able to learn machine learning, but the process could have been much smoother.

    Best Investment

    I attended web development immersive course at GA and it's undoubtedly the best investment of my time and money. I came from a programming background but still I have learnt so many new things and improved my coding skills. It helped me make a career change and landed me in the job I love to do.

    Data Analysis (Online)

    I personally thought it was a great program that was really what you made of it. It had a vast array of resources to define one's skills, but at the same time was not too time consuming and demanding.

    Problems with the DC data science program

    We're in week 10 of the 12-week data science immersive program, and I really regret choosing GA. Last week, after almost 2 months of ignoring student concerns, the administration parted ways with our lead instructor, gave us a 20% discount, and decided to extend the program by a week. You can imagine what the program has been like for these things to happen.

    There ARE some wonderful people working at GA. However there isn't quality control (on anything), an...

    Seattle Job Market is Difficult

    The instructors are hit or miss; we had one amazing instructor, but the other instructor was often unprepared to teach.  The curriculum gives a good introduction to the basics as well as cutting edge technologies for web development and the projects provide good hands on experience.  There is very little job assistance following graduation.  GA advertises a reverse job fair where employers come to see your work, but for ours only 5 recruiters showed up and they were looking for people with...
