    I had a great experience!

    My overall experience with Springboard was great. I am transitioning from the scientific research field into the design industry, and I felt the materials presented in the course was sufficient at providing the necessary tools to gain UI/UX design experience. 

    I feel like a student will get the most of out of this course if they push themselves independently.

    Great overall

    Pros:
    Mentor support, career services, job guarantee, curriculum content, flexibility.

    Cons:
    Curriculum delivery

    This was my second bootcamp experience, after having a misunderstanding about the job guarantee with the first one. Once I vetted Springboard's job guarantee, it was a no-brainer to sign up. At the time of this writing (March 2022) I had an option to pay only after I received a qualifying position, or else I wouldn't have to pay at all.

    An overpriced waist of time

    This program is a total waist of money. You can easily learn everything they teach you here and pay 1/6th of the price tag. ALL of the coding lessons come from data camp, so right there you can easily just pay for the data camp data science career track and you just saved yourself a pretty penny. Then they just copy and paste some web articles into the curriculum. Its absolutely ridiculous that you have to pay thousands more for data camp with a bunch of hype. I still haven't found a job...

    Hard work, great pay off

    I was in the Data Science Career Track course. This course was a bit expensive, but I was motivated by the job guarantee, and that a data science job would help me to afford the loan payments at the end of the course. I was able to get a job the month before I completed the course! I am making $78,000 at my entry level Data Science position in Texas.

    I was applying for Data Science jobs since before starting the course, and as I progressed I saw improvements in my applications. Ha...

    Be prepared to work hard for your success!

    Software Engineering isn't for everyone, so make sure you understand what the day-to-day and challenging parts of an SE career are like by talking to developers in the field. This program is intensive, but even so, expect to dive deeper into books, docs, and other sources outside of the material to learn if you are new to programming. The mentorship program is wonderful and this camp will help you build lots of projects for your portfolio. You have unlimited access to career coaches so m...

    Software Engineering Career Prep

    I tried learning software development on my own but it was slow and inefficient. I thought I would try the prep course to feel things out and was blown away. The course is unbelievably well laid out and understandable. I started with very limited exposure to coding and just took my time with the content.  I struggled briefly with the final assessment because they really challenge you. I appreciate the challenge and studied/practiced what they provided and managed to pass the next time. I...

    Great experience

    I had a great experience. The course was relatively easy to follow and both mentors and Springboard team were very professional.  They were very prompt about any questions I had, and always offered support for any issues that came up. A challenging course, but not beyond my initial expectations.

    UI/UX Design Career Track Program

    I just completed Springboard's UI/UX program and can confidently say that this was the best decision I made! Before starting the program, I researched numerous other boot camps and although Springboard was on the pricier side, it also offered the most benefits. Yes, other boot camps may have things they do that Springboard doesn't but what drew me in was the amount of mentorship and career support they had to offer. Weekly calls with an assigned mentor, career mentorship throughout the p...

    I don't see any cons with Springboard. Mentors, career counsellors, student advisors are all great . All the mentors are great and knowledgable in their feild. The pros that I felt are note worthy are flexible hours, mentors are so full of knowledge, the way curriculum is organised and the job guarantee program. The main reason to take up this course was, It had the flexibility, everything was structured like mentor calls, projects, and the way all the topics were self explanatory.
