The program has also an active Slack community, On demand Mentor Support, Career Support, Career Lessons and 3 different types of specializations, to meet different needs. It also has a lot of hands on case studies and 2 Data Science Capstone Projects.

    Con: I have to say that I started to really appreciate the program in the second part of it. The mentor change, the 2 Capstones and joining a group study with weekly meetings made the program more enjoyable.

    Overall, it was a really good decision to pick Springboard.

    Springboard is an excellent curated program which provides all of the resources you would need to land a job in ML/DS. They do not hold your hand however, you get out what you put in, and you can go as fast or slow as you want. They simply conglomerate the best material out there for you to study, and the best resources for perfecting your application and interview skills for the industry. The material is not their own, but it is so well organized and you know you are learning something valuable instead of guessing what videos/articles are useful to consume. Your mentor can guide you to better understand the industry and develop an impressive capstone project, and the career coaches are indispensable (I owe my interview performance to my career coach). Then the mock interviews at the end of the course are helpful for easing you into that intense, highly demanding interview process. I was coming from academia (mastered out of my physics PhD program), and this was the perfect solution to help me become industry-relevant. Of course my degree contributed to my ability to land interviews, but I can tell you I would not have been able to do any of it without Springboard. I was able to secure a DS position at a top tech company after 6 months (full-time) at Springboard, and I would highly recommend the program if you are looking to break into tech.

    Really enjoyed my time at Springboard's UX Career Track program which helped me start my job as a UX/UI designer after having worked professionally in marketing/visual design for nearly 10+ years.

    Pros:

    —The career services module was easily worth the price of admittance. It helped keep me sane during my 9+ month job hunt and helped me stay on track during this arduous process.
    — My mentor was fantastic and I am still in touch with her today and am benefitting from hearing her stories and how I could best apply lessons she learned to my current job situation.
    — The IDP project was great and helped teach me to work alongside other designers.

    Cons:
    —The school aggregates its curriculum from various online sources which are available for free, so it could theoretically be self-taught. However, having the proper learning structure in place still really helped.
    — It teaches UX from the traditional waterfall perspective which not all companies follow. It was a bit of an adjustment for me to adapt these principles to more agile processes, which many companies use nowadays.
    _ It's up to the student to figure out how to standout from the rest of the crowd/graduates. Your portfolio will look quite similar to others upon graduation so it's up to the student to figure out how to best find a solution to this.

    I had a good time with Spring Board's ML course.  The certificate is under the UC San Diego Extension name, which is great.  The course itself is overall good, however I do want to point out a few things: 

    1. It's only as useful as the amount of time you put into it 
    2. Take notes constantly or you won't learn anything 
    3. Use mentor to keep you on track 

    Their material are all freely available online like YouTube videos, while this sound bad it did not distract from the learning experience negatively.  HOWEVER, there are a few parts that is behind paywalls, which definitely was a negative experience.  Some material could be rearranged, you need to go back and forth or you will be confused.  Also their sales people seem to think everyone and their dog could pay them $10k and graduate as a ML scientist but in my experience you really do need to be in the software industry already to make the most of it. 
    The best part for me was the career help,  you should definitely take advantage of that and do everything they tell you.  Overall would recommend.
    I also enjoyed conversating with my mentor, I highly recommend leveraging your mentor as much as possible every week.

    Having just completed Springboard's UX Design Career Track, I am walking away with a whole new set of UX skills and thanks to the rigorous curriculum  I feel very confident in my ability to execute them in a professional setting. I come from a multi-disciplinary design background, and I've had an interest in transitioning into the UX/UI field for a few years, so I was slowly self-learning and taking Coursera courses prior to starting the Springboard course. Unfortunately, Coursera courses and designing some apps for your portfolio just won't cut it. Springboard guides you through a range of key methodologies and best practices in UX design, with projects heavily focused on user research and usability testing, as well as plenty of mentoring from real industry professionals. It's the real deal and it's worth it.

Thanks!
