After I knew I wanted to change careers and learn UX/UI design I did a search for the best ways to learn online. There are plenty of options but there always seemed to be a catch. For example, the Google certificate from Coursera was peer graded, Upenn doesn't actually give you access to their network and is run by Trilogy, GA doesn't give you as much support, some want you to do 3 bootcamps to get the job guarantee, etc. And none of this info was easy to find.. I made a whole spreadsheet and...

Cohort - My entire team is amazing and when you're full time online all day this really does matter. You'll meet great people that support you. Instructors - You may connect with some more than others but overall they're all very helpful,...
Cons
Cost - No doubt, one of the most expensive programs around. But from experience (I'm in month 4/5), I do think it's worth it. It feels like a college level program to me and I transferred schools several times so I know what college has to...

My main problem with Thinkful is how the curriculum is designed. Study material feels more like a high level summary rather then a detailed explanation. Overall concepts are not well explained and there doesn't seem to be a natural flow from one section to the next. On many occasions I had to use other sources to understand what the module was about or how to complete the assessment. For all the money they are charging, the modules should include more tutorial videos. Specially the sections...
Pros
I idea of meeting with a mentor twice a week to good. The session you spend with the mentor allows you to ask questions and go over assignments.
Cons
1) Too expensive 2) This is a problem with every bootcamp. I don't understand why they need to cramp all these material in a six month period. 3) Think chat is not very useful. Few times that I tried to use in the morning, I was asked to...

$12,000+ to self teach… 90% self taught. You get a chat room for help. Chances of them knowing is copy paste or they’re confused because the program was worded horrible. You will learn more on free courses. Because you will use that more *Bonus* = I had help from a person with “20 year experience “ and he said this place teaching wrong and bad habits and a lot of mistakes … He also worked there for a few… crazy… smh
Pros
Part time Don’t pay unless hired option or refund in 6 months
Cons
The whole course. If your visual learning don’t join. $12000 for self teaching style is RIDICULOUS.

An introduction to the data science space that under delivers and leaves a lot to be desired. Would I do the program again knowing what I do now? Absolutely not. Most of this material can be found online for free and what you get from the program does not justify the cost at all.

I joined Thinkful in August 2020 taking the full time Engineering Immersion course, and I was very eager and excited to get going. The prep course was great, and gave me a pretty good window of what I was getting into. Enrollment wasn't really an issue, and the process of getting into a rhythm didn't present me any trouble either. The coursework itself was good, and any confusion could be cleared up by either the personal Mentor, the TAs(arguably the most valuable part of the program) or the...

Thinkful's ISA payment plan allowed me to finish school and land a job in less than a year! Before Thinkful I was struggling to make tuition at community college and taking out student loans that accrue interest. When I decided to go to Thinkful I felt I was taking a leap of faith by signing up for an educational and payment model that was unfamiliar to me. Thankfully I can say the training I received from Thinkful has really paid off! This week I started working in my new role in tech as a...

Cons
If you don't learn well by reading and taking notes, this might not be the program for you. I loved my experience but I do think the curriculum could benefit at times from a more hands on approach when it comes to learning different tools.

You will have to do a lot of extra research and practice outside of what is provided but being able to figure stuff out quickly by yourself might be the actual skill your learning more than just coding.

With that said, I have heard a few things about Thinkful that I will share. I also want to preface this post: these are things that I have heard and are in no way meant to be damaging to Thinkful's image. There are many good things about them as well.

How do Thinkful's Living Stipends work?

It's a 5-month program, every month they distribute $1500 over 5 months to cover some of your bills. The stipend gets added to the loan and you repay after they find you work. If they're unable to find you work or if you don't get a job that pays you at least $40,000, you don't pay back the loan.
