    Great intro to analytics!

    Level provided a strong foothold in R, SQL, Tableau, and statistics. The instructors were very professional and I enjoyed the relevant speakers. I felt more confident in my skills to move into an analytically driven job after I completed the program. 

    The program does move fast and it can be hard sometimes to keep up. This is especially true for someone like me who had no previous coding background. A prospective student has to be prepared to spend time out of class to fully master...

    Pro's:  The Level Team was awesome to work with.  The highlight was the meaningful and relevant content.  Otherwise great engagement from all aspects of the course.

    Con:  The courses are evolving, but I dont really consider this to be a detriment.  More a reflection of what is current.

    Level is a very intensive 8-week course focused on  teaching you data analytics and data science.

    I really enjoyed my time at Level.  I believe I definitely got my money's worth and the capstone project was extremely useful. Though, ties with Northeastern and their resources proved to be a huge bonus as well.

    I'll start with the capstone because that is the most important part of this class. You are paired up with a real company with a real problem that you have to solv...

    Data Analytics

    Level provided me the skills needed to launch a new career in Data Analytics. It gave me the background needed in R and SQL to go into interviews with more confidence. It also introduced new ways of approaching problems and how to solve them through analysis. 

    The capstone project allowed me to apply a few of the newly learned skills to a real world problem and eventually lead to a full time job.

    Level Alum - 2nd Cohort

    The best part about Level is the networking opportunities, which isn’t surprising coming from Northeastern.  Anyone can learn the skills taught in this bootcamp online or by taking classes, but the connections through the in-person bootcamp are invaluable.  My cohort was great.  My classmates were constantly sending one another job postings they found based on our individual backgrounds.

    I have several strong leads after completing Level including a potentia...

    Level is a really great program for anybody who wishes to enter the growing field of data analytics.  The course consisted of 8 weeks (9 am - 5 pm) of lectures and labs as well as numerous guest speakers.  Students really get to learn the technial tools (R, SQL, Tableau, excel) as well as the statistical theories.  This personally was my first experience with a coding language.  The course ends with a Capstone project where students are paired with a company and given a real data set and a...

    Data Analytics Bootcamp

    Level is a new data analytics bootcamp offered by Northeastern University in four different locations in the U.S.  We attended class full-time for 8 weeks, culminating in a capstone project that we did for an actual company (each student did a project for a different company...there were a wide variety of projects).  We focused on statistics, Excel, R, SQL, Tableau, regression and machine learning.

    Not worth it

    Level is not worth the money you pay for it.  

    The program does not fully live up to what it advertises itself as.

    If you're self motivated and bootcamp worthy, my advice to you would be to go through Galvanize
    if you can afford it and have the Python/Math knowledge or take the John Hopkins Data Science
    specialization course on coursera.

    Their web page leveledu.com advertises the program as having "Each day built around a real world

    Thank you for sharing your experience and we’re sorry Level didn’t fully meet your expectations. As you know, we are constantly collecting feedback so we can iterate and improve the program. Our instructors are committed to fixing any errors in the slides as well as continuing to improve the overall content. We are in the process of creating a unified version of the content, having run the program in four markets. We are also developing additional “levels” of the program so that we can offer more programmatic flexibility and so that students have more similar capabilities coming into the program. We will also be assigning more rigorous pre-work, and making assessments mandatory to ensure student accountability and the achievement of learning outcomes. We are happy that you had a positive capstone experience, and appreciate your help in improving Level! We hope you stay connected through our chat rooms and other community events.

    Former Student at Level

    We initially had the most incompetent instructor. He was constantly late to class and annoyed by any question students would ask. During Labs he would be on his phone and do absolutely nothing to further our learning. It comical how bad he was and we noticed this pretty much the first or second day of classes. I am shocked they ebe hired this guy to begin with, which goes to show how much the admin cares. The program eventually fired him half way through, but did not do anything (anything!...

    I have a really bad experience of attending the level workshop. The one hosted at silicon valley. Not worth the time and money. They advertised the  5 weeks workshop of database  & dashboard very attractive. In reality it's just a very quick and basic intro to SQL and tabluea. I believe you can learn much more from Udemy for just $9.99. Not worth $600.  Their faculty and management people are also bad. Not really care your feedback. Bad attitude. SO SO BAD.

    Level Core Full-time

    Starting with the cons:

    The people all come from very different backgrounds. That makes for very interesting interactions, but it also makes it hard to teach. There were points where I felt like the class was stalling because some people didn't have the built-up knowledge to grasp what came naturally for some of the rest of us. That said, that's probably a con for all boot camps more so than this particular one, since Level gets its name from its attempt to solve this problem by di...
