    Absolutely Worth It

    I graduated from the 12-week remote live boot camp in April 2021. I can't speak highly enough of this program.

    A bit about my background: BA&MA in social science (psychology), I had a lot of stats knowledge but very minimal programming experience. I had taken an introductory data science class and fell in love with the material. I chose NYCDSA over other boot camps because they teach both R and Python (this is a huge plus - I strongly believe both are necessary for most jobs)....

    Worth It

    I graduated from the 12-week remote live program in December 2020 and I highly recommend it. The program is intensive but well worth the challenge. 

    Prior to NYCDSA, I had just finished my undergrad and was looking to break into the data science field. At the time, I had a strong quantitative background and a decent foundation in programming but was missing tangible data science projects/experience. I found myself gravitating more towards this program than any other Bo...

    Elite program for an elite experience

    After 18 years of specialist experience, I was starting to develop a FOMO with Data Science. After some research and recommendation from a friend who completed this program I decided to enroll. No doubt, this will change my life. It was liberating and the 6-month investment was well worth the tuition fees. The instructors were experienced and curriculum was cutting edge and the program 'forced' me to keep pace with my learning and successfully complete it. It was hard, because I have a d...

    A solid balance between industry expertise and a genuine drive to help students advance their careers

    I did the Interactive Distance Learning (IDL) program in 2020, so keep in mind that my experience was strongly influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic. I am a career switcher from the health services industry - this bootcamp got me into the tech industry 2.5 months after completion of the program and taught me fundamental coding and machine learning skills as well as advanced statistics skills. That said, for the IDL course, because it is relatively self-paced, you get out exactly what you p...

    Excellent and Challenging Program

    Before joining the program, I was a student majoring in Business Analytics. I had a hard time finding a data analyst position and therefore I was thinking maybe I was not qualified for a data-related job yet. My friend recommended this Bootcamp to me and when I check out the course curriculum I knew this is exactly what I was looking for. The courses are very comprehensive, covering topics including web scraping, data analysis & visualization, machine learning, and big data. I felt s...

    Could not recommend NYC-DSA more

    For the better part of the past decade, I worked as a medical researcher both in an academic setting and professionally for a company. While I had a strong foundation in mathematics and statistics, I lacked the rigorous coding, experience with relational databases, and machine learning knowledge to pivot towards a career in Data Science and business analytics.

    Before the Bootcamp, I tried teaching myself R through an impersonal, distant online course with limited success. While th...

    Worth every second

    In short, the bootcamp excels on the curriculum, providing guidance, and career services. I found this bootcamp online, and I decided to go for this one because of the curriculum and the feel of it during the assessment process - they sounded like they knew what they were doing! They provided valuable feedback on the areas I needed to improve.

    Powerful springboard for those who are willing to put the time and effort into the program

    In my mind, there is no such thing as a perfect bootcamp but NYCDSA got as close to perfect as it can get for me, which is why I gave it a 4 star. The curriculum is the most comprehensive of all the data science bootcamps available and covers topics that are the most practical for job search. What students learn at schools are often not used in real world settings. NYCDSA gets this so its curriculum focuses on skillsets that graduates can apply directly at work but also offers materials ...

    So Glad I Enrolled!!!

    Before my NYC Data Science Academy Bootcamp Experience, I was a high school mathematics teacher.  In order to make informed pedagogical decisions, I increasingly relied upon data collection and data analysis.  This sparked my interest in data science.  Since I enrolled in the Summer Session of the Bootcamp, I was able to continue to receive my teacher salary for most of the 12-weeks.

    Worthy of your time and effort

     This bootcamp was suggested to me by my friend. She has done very well after completing the program. I'm a bit different to her. She has a math degree and my background is in languages and business. Also, I have zero experience in Data Science or programming as a whole. 
    The curriculum allows to build the foundation first. It's not done slowly, the program is quite intense. Somehow I found myself forgetting I knew so little and understanding the course material.

    It Worked!

    I joined NYC Data Science Academy this summer to help me make a career transition from Material Science Engineering into Data Science, and in short, it worked! I increased my salary, easily making the Bootcamp worth it as a purely financial decision, and am starting to work in a new exciting field. 

    I chose them over others because I was impressed with their instructors and they offer continuous career support after graduating.  I was not disappointed. Their instructors are passio...
