This review will go in backward chronological order, starting with getting a job (the most important part). I just went through a job search, and the support I received from the career counselor (Garrett Schaefer) was really fantastic. He helped me to think about what to put on my resume and how to best format it. He also helped me consider negotiation, interviewing best practices, and general order of operations throughout the process. Metis provides great resources for setting up an...
Pros
- Project focus forces you to build a portfolio - Good instructors with industry experience - Touches on a variety of machine learning topics - Great resources for job search and career counseling
Cons
- Surface level at times - Some class time is used on installing packages / software - Not every instructor is top notch (try to get the good ones if you have the option)

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 on one...
Pros
One on one support Hands on instruction Relevant curriculum
Cons
Not as much help getting your first job from career center as advertised

Metis was overall an amazing experience. From the application through graduation the staff and instructors were supportive and responsive! The course content was well designed and mostly clear. The most valuable part of the Metis experience was the peer support and 1:1 instructor/TA meetings. My peers and I still keep in contact for job searching job and networking. Additionally, the 1:1 feedback from TAs and instructors was pivotal to my learning. I also really appreciated the post-bootcamp...
Pros
Career support Peer network Well written curriculum Projects for post-graduation portfolio
Cons
Full time, so may not be possible for everyone to leave job

Super impressed with the program and my own progress

Just a forewarning: I'm probably going to sound like an informercial, but it's just because I'm thrilled about my experience with Metis. I completed the Data Science & Machine Learning track at Metis a few months ago. My decision to apply was pretty impulsive. My background is primarily in linguistics, with some computer science. I knew nothing about data science or machine learning, despite having worked alongside data scientists and machine learning engineers for a couple of years. Metis...
Pros
- Instructors are extremely knowledgable and supportive - You have the option to do the bootcamp entirely remotely - Awesome career support at the end of the bootcamp - Networking ! You're immediately connected with students in your...
Cons
- It's expensive - A big time commitment. If you're like me, you may not have time for a social life until you finish the bootcamp (if you do it full-time) - There is still a lot of self-learning, so you need to be motivated

An excellent challenge that sticks with you

The Metis DS bootcamp was life-transforming, in the best sense. Perhaps no other three-month period in my life was so distinctive. It was tons of hard work, which I always felt glad to do, all day, late into the night, and most of the weekends too. (If there were more than 7 days in the week or more than 24 hours in the day, I would have spent the additional ones on the bootcamp work.) Ok, so I’m already unusually inclined and motivated to learn (I had a PhD already) and I’ve been keenly...
Pros
• Rigorous material • Practice problem solving • Builds a project portfolio • Make professional connections w/ fellow bootcampers and alumni • Gain familiarity with professional software tools
Cons
"Clear the decks" because you won't have time for anything else while you are in the bootcamp

An okay course, but not worth the money

Overall, I liked the bootcamp, but it didn't meet my expectations, and based on the price point I think independent study would be better. There was also far too much time dedicated to independent project time instead of actual instruction, which I think really minimized how much I learned in the end. I also think the bootcamp is really weak on SQL. I understand the desire to teach Python and machine learning algorithms, but from my experience that is not the skill set that helps you find your...
Pros
- Great cohort of people of all backgrounds - 1:1s available at all hours of the day - Pair programming
Cons
- There were a couple good instructors who were willing to take the time to help you understand, but overall I don't think some were that good and their lectures were confusing or convoluted. If the good instructors had taught the whole...

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 help you...
Pros
As above - robust admissions process, curriculum and support.
Cons
No real cons. As others noted, there are some areas of the curriculum which felt rushed, but that is expected given the length of the bootcamp. Metis arms you with a solid foundation which can be built upon post-bootcamp.

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, Metis...
Pros
Supportive community of students, teachers, advisors, and program managers. Excellent curriculum and guidance during projects.
Cons
Tuition was at the high end compared to other programs. I found it worth it, but the high cost + full-time commitment isn't feasible for everyone.

A prudent investment in my future that has paid dividends many times over.

Metis delivered on all my expectations. I decided to explore making a career transition to Data Science after working as a postdoc for 3 years after completing my PhD in Political Science at Cornell and feeling less than satisfied with my academic career prospects. After teaching myself some basic Python and brushing up on my linear algebra, probability and statistics (I had done a minor in Math in undergrad just for fun but that was over a decade ago and all my Poli Sci research was super...
Pros
Incredible career support, comprehensive and cutting edge curriculum, many opportunities for 1:1s with instructors and TAs.
Cons
Some instructors assume students have more of a background in DS than is reasonable

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. Metis is a...

Insightful information, vast amount of useful knowledge

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 course,...
Pros
-Amazing instructors and TA that will help you at every step of the way -Tough but fair curriculum that really pushes you to meet the demands of learning difficult concepts -Project-based, allows you to finish with a portfolio of data...
Cons
-Since the curriculum tries to cover a wide range of things, some topics can feel rush or not in-depth enough -Job assistance team, while the the resource is invaluable, felt like it came a little too rushed at the end.

Metis is on point. They are constantly updating their curriculum based on industry standards. They offer as much 1-1 support as one could desire. They support big ideas and help them come to life. I found a Data Scientist job within 30 days of graduating (it was with a company I'd worked for in the past, but never in data science/technical roles). They also help tailor resumes, and part of the daily routine is preparing students for technical interviews. The people I met at Metis - both...
