    Worth the price of admission/attendance

    Before: I had a bachelors in engineering and a law degree. I had worked in a number of different fields and didn't find a job that was fulfilling. I wanted to work on machine learning and NLP, and a bootcamp seemed like the fastest way to get there. From my research Metis seemed to be at exactly the right level for me. I didn't have an applied math Phd, but had a good amount of technical experience and math abilities that I wanted to take further.

    Application: I had plenty of bac...

    Intense and totally worth it

    Before: Psychology major with eclectic work experience for the six years since I'd graduated. Decided I didn't have enough concrete skills/experience to land a job that would be challenging and interesting enough, and I didn't trust myself to learn on my own. Decided on a bootcamp because of the structure and network it would provide, and considered data science because it seemed more niche than coding.

    Application: I wasn't set on attending Metis, but when the application was ha...

    Extremely valuable experience

    Before attending Metis, I was a postdoctoral researcher in chemistry who was not feeling academic research anymore. I took some online classes in data science and thought it seemed like a cool and interesting field, but online courses can only take you so far. Also, I lacked enough connections to actual data scientists to really get a job in the field. I got into and applied to several different boot camps to help me bridge this gap, but I really appreciated that Metis did not try to overs...

    Great experience

    Prior to attending Metis I was a data analyst for a market research company. At the time, I was ready to leave my company for a new position, and so I conducted a search for new analyst or data scientist roles. I had trouble finding a good opportunity, and I found that I wasn't competitive for the data scientist positions to which I applied.

    Metis helped me change that. After 3 months of bootcamp and a couple more of job searching, I got a GREAT data scientist position.

    Valuable Experience

    I finished the Data Science Bootcamp in April of 2017 and it was a great experience! Making a career change is difficult and Metis did an excellent job of preparing me to enter the field. The technical skills and network I built have been invaluable and certainly worth the time and effort the program demands.

    Could not recommend enough

    I chose to write my review one year into working as a data scientist to give an honest assessment of my experience with the program from the perspective of an actual data scientist, not an aspiring one. My honest assessment is this - you can go into Metis with literally no experience in data science and be employable by the time you graduate. I shopped around a lot for the boot camp that I believed would give me the best shot at getting a job by three criteria - hands on instruction, one...

    Tight-Knit Community with High Standards, Higher Results

    I had an incredible experience at Metis.  The program is a rewarding experience if you are up for the challenge.  

    Admissions: It will require you to have a bit of python experience (Metis offers an Intro Course that is perfect for beginners) so be sure to practice coding on one of the many resources out there and to brush up on basic statistics and probability. And if you feel like you need more practice, Metis lays out pre work to cover any areas you may need a bit of reinforcem...

    Worth the investment

    I found my time in Metis to be challenging but incredibly rewarding. Prior to Metis, I worked in management consulting so I had very little background in data science. The skills I gained through the programme enabled me to get a data science role a month after graduating from the bootcamp. 

    ADMISSIONS: Rigorous process but the Admissions team was supportive throughout the process. They provide guidance on what to expect for the testing / interview process as well as materials to ...

    Curriculum, Community, Commitment

    After several years in finance, I wanted to pivot my career towards data and decided a bootcamp would be the fastest and most direct path to that goal. I think the core benefits of a program like this are (a) outsourcing the time and decision-making of curating a curriculum, (b) cultivating a data science community, and (c) making a commitment in terms of time and finance to learning the material, getting hands on practice, and finding that next job. While evaluating different programs, ...

    Difficult but Rewarding Experience

    If you're not sure which review to trust because you're not sure which shoes you fill out, hear me out for just a moment. I'm a bioengineering student. Coding, let alone data science, was a world away for me. I barely knew there was a science to data. But with the continuous support of the instructors, and then the diligent career advisors even well after the bootcamp had ended, I went from mean, median, mode, to creating full-fledged end-to-end projects, even in my own time.

    Excellent way to jump start your career into data science/analytics

    The Metis data science bootcamp is an excellent way for you to not only jump start your career into data science/analytics but also to feel out if this is what you really want to do in your career. I had some coding/analytical experience prior to the program and yet I still found myself really grateful for the extra prep that Metis emphasized before Day 1. The course will teach you the foundational concepts of data science in both the technical and professional aspects of the field. Of c...

    Transformative experience

    I attended Metis in the summer of 2020 after spending a decade in education as a math teacher and administrator. Simply put, Metis was the best decision I ever made. The experience changed my life and gave me the skills and confidence to pivot to a completely different industry. As an educator, I was consistently impressed with the quality of the curriculum and  support and expertise of the instructors.
