Very easy interview difficulty

The process was very simple, it took about 30 minutes. I filled out an application form and then answered some logic/math questions, and got accepted within another 30 minutes.
Pros
Easy, straightforward
Cons
I was not contacted by an advisor. Also, I could not schedule a call because I'm not located in the USA/Canada. I would have preferred to talk to an advisor over the phone about the program instead of relying on email.

This is a review of the software engineering career track prep course, so not the full boot camp. However, because of the prep course I am way more prepared to dive into the full 9 month program. It was the perfect introduction to the video learnings, practice problems, mentor calls, student Slack community, and more that is part of the full boot camp. Colt Steele's teaching style is very clear and understandable, even for beginners. The practices were also very insightful. Overall, I had a...

- online videos means go at your own pace - weekly mentor calls - student community via Slack - practice content

I will start off saying that I was very reluctant to trust an online school BUT Springboard is legit. When I first signed up, I paid in full. I unfortunately had to drop out near the beginning due to a family emergency. They were very understanding and didn't hesitate to give me a FULL refund which I received within 2 days of my request. I was so pleased that I re-enrolled and Springboard even honored my original tuition rate even though it had increased. I enrolled in the UX Design bootcamp...
Pros
Student support. Easy to follow along and comprehensive curriculum.
Cons
Update programs to what is the current standard. Would like more time incorporated into the curriculum.

I was extremely hesitant paying this much money for a bootcamp program but I do believe it was worth every dollar. I finished this in over a year, full time and would definitely recommend doing it slowly to capitalize on the course material. The mentors and career coaches are outstanding, they are industry professional's who really have a passion for helping and have so much knowledge when it comes to UX content, resume & portfolio building as well as positioning yourself in the industry.

Pros
- passionate career coaches - industry design project - knowledgeable/responsive mentors

- UI curriculum could be stronger (this is hard to teach and comes with hands - on practice, though.)

I had an amazing time at Springboard! The learning curriculum is up-to-date, the instructor is a fantastic teacher, mentors are highly knowledgeable and students are given a lot of time - if they need it - to practice what they are being taught. Students are not being played false with the job guarantee and they are given all the information required to study and pass their 4 mock interviews to secure the job guarantee!
Pros
Great mentorship, fantastic instructor, and up-to-date curriculum

I really enjoyed the program! A few key factors on why I chose Springboard was because of the mentorship and portfolio help that they offered. The mentorship was really helpful, we would meet once a week and their mentors are really educated and experienced within the field, they would always provide good insights, feedback, and help you develop your next course of actions. The projects that you work on within the program all have different objectives so it doesn't feel like you're just...

The best part about Springboard is the ongoing mentorship and the on-demand mentorship calls. I am a data analyst who pivoted from sales. I upskilled into Python and SQL which required big mental shifts, trying to learn this stuff on your own is doable, but the projects you receive and get to showcase to recruiters is INVALUABLE. If you want to set yourself apart, I would highly recommend you consider Springboard as your #1 option. Good Luck!
Pros
1-1 Weekly Mentorship On Demand Mentor Calls (Once per day) Projects that you can showcase on your resume to get hired by recruiters Valuable Skillsets (Python, SQL, Statistical Analysis, Advanced Excel)
Cons
Sometimes the mentors don't show up on the on-demand mentorship calls you signed up for, this happened 2-3 times over 6 months. This course takes a lot of time to work through, time management is a must to succeed and chip away one day at...
