    Things that I love about this camp:
     
    -5 Unique Capstone Projects
     
    What I like most about these projects are that you are able to select which data sets to analyze. You have complete freedom to take your analysis in whichever direction you'd like. Thinkful does a really good job of letting you get creative so you can stand out from others while also holding your work to a really high standard of quality. My mentor has been nothing short of fantastic and has been pushin me on all of my projects to go above and beyong what I originally intended.
     
    -Mentor Sessions/Workshops
     
    The Mentor sessions are great. You can ask you mentor any questions about your code, resume, careers, and really develop under their guidance. It's a great opportunity to build a relationship with someone who could be a reference for you later on in your job search.
     
    If you ever run into issues, there are a ton of workshops hosted by the other mentors during the week where you can come with questions. It's kind of like going to office hours for a TA/Professor back in college.
     
    I gave the curriculum a 4 solely because you do need to be very self-motivated to find answers on your own. Though you have access to tons of material, there honestly isn't a "perfect curriculum" that can address all of the skills you need to make your projects progress. The curriculum is not cookie cutter at all and does a great job providing a scaffolding for your success. The statistics course has room for improvement and I would suggest taking a supplemental stats course along with what Thinkful provides(there are literally tons on the internet that will do)
     
    -Really supportive community and curriculum eases the learning curve(A BIT)
     
    The curriculum is created so that first timers can succeed and does a great job simplifying concepts. I have 0 programming background prior to this camp but I really never felt my lack of programming knowledge was a hindrance but the learning curve is really steep. We also have a slack channel where all students can post/answer questions and issues. We also have different meetups as well!

    I have to say that I am enjoying my experience thus far with Thinkful. Not only is the course material challenging (in a good way) but it is relevant to what you expect. 

     This program doesn’t come without its hiccups but they recover from it quickly. I had a mentor, who was great, that didn’t show up to the assigned meetings. I notified my program manager and not only did they fix it within hours, they credited me any time missed. The whole team was fantastic. I got a new mentor and plugged away without missing a beat.

    I am beyond extremely satisfied with my experience so far!

    I encourage those to seek out Thinkful for their Data Science needs!

    I still have a ways to go, as I am in the middle of my first capstone project, but so far so good. I contemplated enrolling in this program for several months before I actually decided to go through with it. I am very happy with my decision and wish I made it earlier! Web development always interested me but it was a little intimidating. However, what I have learned throughout life so far has taught me to not shy away from things that might seem intimidating. Ultimately, it is these things that help you grow as a person. Thinkful does a great job at making the task of learning web development feel more comforting than intimidating. They offer an abundance of resources - wether it be your weekly mentor sessions, Q&A sessions, or the Thinkful slack community. Honestly, I probably could take way more advantage of those last two that I mentioned. The fact that they are even an option though is helpful enough to ease the potential stress of learning this difficult topic. They truly want you to succeed and offer you enough resources that if you have the desire to learn and put in the work, it should be somewhat smooth sailing. Life is all about the journey or the process. I believe Thinkful has this in mind when developing its curriculum.

    I am currently enrolled in the Thinkful Data Science program. I am looking to make a career change, and researched many bootcamps before choosing Thinkful. The reason I went with Thinkful is that they have a great network of graduates, and the course is not disappointing! The course is exceptional, the mentors are fantastic, and the job placement is fantastic.My mentor is extremely knowledgable in Data Science, and is working on his own projects, which make the class exciting and relatable to real world applications. The program managers are constantly offering field trips and networking opportunities to connect you with the local tech community, not to mention providing invaluable consulting time. Could not recommend this course enough!

    I carefully considered several boot camps before deciding to go with Thinkful. I had narrowed it down to my favorite two and then when I looked at the curriculum offered by both, there was no comparison to Thinkful. I have enjoyed being enrolled and I have found many employers to be excited to hire a boot camp grad (this was one of my hesitations with doing a boot camp). My mentors have been awesome and my program manager has checked up on me to make sure I am enjoying the experience. To be honest, I didn't expect much from an online boot camp, but Thinkful has blown away all my expectations. I would recommend Thinkul to anyone who is considering a transition into software engineering.

    I am currently a student of the Thinkful Full Stack Flex curriculum. The coursework is online and allows me to study when I get home from work in the afternoons. I have been assigned a mentor, and I meet with him twice a week. My mentor is excellent. He has answered thousands of questions that I have regarding the coursework as well as the industry in general. He has managed to keep me on task and has given me a timeline to help guide my completion of my capstone projects.  It's one thing to have an online course to study material, it's another thing to have someone successful guide you along and explain what is important. This course has definitely been excellent.

    I have been in Thinkful’s fullstack flex bootcamp for about 3 months now. So far I am impressed with the content and the interactions I’ve had in the course. The most beneficial part of this boot camp in my opinion, is the one-on-one mentoring sessions. These sessions are twice a week for an hour. These sessions have been hugely helpful for me in understanding the curriculum especially once I began leaning JavaScript. Overall I would recommend the thinkful full stack program for anyone just starting out in web development.

     Thinkful offers a month long preparation course which was extremely useful to me to refresh my understanding of fundamental statistics. I had no experience of using Python before joining the program. The prep-course really prepares you for programming skills needed for the main bootcamp. Once you compete the prep-course, you will be assigned a mentor based on your available schedule for two one-hour mentor sessions a week. I am taking this program while being on a full- time employment and the flexibility was the key to me for enrolling in this program. I find this style of 1-1 mentor-student pairing really helpful for my learning style. I feel like there are plenty of resources available online  if you want to learn data science on your own but this mentor guidance is the key that I love about this program.  I get to talk through the challenges I faced in the course materials or assignments during those sessions. Mentors are really knowledgeable. If they are not expert on some aspects they guide you to great resources.  Thinkful also has plenty of Q&A sessions (via video sessions) during the week where you get to ask questions if you are stuck on course materials between your mentor sessions. Thinkful also has a great community of program managers, students and graduates! If you are motivated to learn data science, go for Thinkful!

    I always wanted to do one of these coding bootcamps. I started getting burntout at my current job and did some research and found Thinkful. My overall experience has been great so far. I think what sets Thinkful apart from the rest is its community as a whole. Whether it be online through the Slack channel, locally, 1-on-1 mentor meetings, or Q and A sessions. Being in Portland allows for family dinners which usually involve someone from the local tech scene. Though everything within Thinkful happens online, it's nice to have the support of a local community from other students to your Program Manager. 

    The only thing I'm not a huge fan of, is how the curriculum is laid out. It's mostly reading, which can be difficult for visual learners like myself. Luckily, there are resources available to help drive home some of the harder concepts. It would be nice to have some videos to go along with the material. 

    Having a mentor is one of the greatest assets. They are there to get you unstuck and help with any concepts that may be unclear. Everyone at Thinkful genuinely wants you to succeed, and for that I'm extremely grateful.

    I entered the data science program with no coding background and have learned more than I ever could have imagined. The curriculum is easy to follow and makes learning fun and relevant. You are paired up with a mentor that you meet with twice a week. Mine is incredibly knowledgeable and always helpful. The Thinkful staff is very responsive, and I feel a sense of community among the students. I highly recommend this program.

    I recently finished my bachelor's in Management of Information Systems after returning to school as an adult. I wanted to make a career change into the tech world and landed in IT and software support but still wasn't quite fulfilled. I wanted a career that involved working on my own projects versus supporting others.  After completing a free tutorial on web development I decided to start researching boot camps. Thinkful won because of the mentor program, flexibility, overall ratings, and cost. 
    I am currently a little over half way done and am so happy with my decision. My mentor has been fantastic and such an asset. There are Q&A sessions every day and a helpful Slack community so I've never gotten stuck for long because I couldn't find help. The curriculum is thorough. I've been really happy with my projects and feel like I'm going to have a good portfolio for job searching. It is a big time commitment, but totally worth it. If I could change one thing I would love to be working part time while doing the program instead of full time. That being said, there are pauses available and it's nice to have a regular income. Overall, I definitely recommend Thinkful.
