About V School

V School is a tech education provider that teaches through a responsive learning-based curriculum. V School online courses are unique because the curriculum is tailored to each student, and it takes their backgrounds and needs into account. There are two V School online programs, a web development bootcamp and a UX/UI design bootcamp.

V School programs are mastery-based, meaning students will continue to receive support until they are completely prepared for the job market. For students who have no experience with coding, there is helpful V School bootcamp prep work to complete before the program. There isn’t a V School job placement guarantee, but V School students build a robust portfolio during the course to use in their job searches.

The wide variety of V School payment options makes this school an accessible option. You can apply for V School scholarships, pay upfront, take out student loans, or pay with GI Bill benefits. You can also apply for the V School deferred tuition income share agreement if you’re ineligible for financial aid and can’t pay upfront.

V School Application Process and Interviews

The application process of this bootcamp is simple. Potential students are required to schedule a call with the admissions team of V School. Then they will fill out an application online. This form will contain your educational level, experience, and career goals to help the advisors customize your curriculum and learning experience.

Applicants also take part in an interview session and aptitude test. The test helps gauge your thinking ability to see how you handle basic logical functions and break down complicated problems.

How do you prepare for the V School interview process? According to a majority of user reviews, the admissions process at V School is a experience. Further, reviewers reported that the V School interview process didn't take long to complete before receiving a decision.

Easy interview difficulty

Not going too much into detail, my life circumstances are a mess and it tends to make me feel terrified to open up about my self and my situation in interviews. This last year I decided I definitely wanted a better life and to live more openly, which to me meant being open about my life and circumstances through the interview process. Having spoken with the VP as well as Debbie from admissions, I walked away from every meeting feeling that I'd not only been given a fair opportunity to...
Pros
A genuine sense of compassion and empathy from everyone I've spoken to who's connected to the school is definitely the thing that meant the most to me. This is reflected in the initiatives the school has undertaken in the past (highly recommend looking into their ethos, it's amazing) as well. The primary logistical strength of the school is in their flexibility. They model the school program after what I've come to understand is the typical model for a tech workplace, but perhaps with slightly more flexibility than I imagine is typical. If you plan on working while doing your bootcamp, this school is definitely something you should check out.
Cons
If you're looking for a structured course, more typical of a post industrial scholastic environment, this may not be what you're looking for.

It took me 1 month to really research what the best bootcamp for me to get my career in software engineering started. It basically teetered between Coding Dojo, and V School. I knew I was not going to be able to do a full time curriculum in person or online. However it came down to the selling point of V School's Mastery Based Learning and Flexible Times. It wasn't a sound bite, and they really enforced that to the benefit of the students. But enforced is a harsh word at this point, but the...

Curriculum gets critical updates to keep up with industry standards. Instructors are competent, and challenges students to be better.
Cons
TA shortage. TA's constantly gets hired, not sure its a detrimental con but its the only thing I can think of

Making the decision to make a career path or career change was daunting for me but honestly the staff at V school made it feel easy and we’re very supportive. After making the decision to start a Bootcamp I was still a little skeptical about the whole process but after beginning the curriculum with zero experience (other than the course pre work) it came along at a steady pace.

The V School family is amazing! Learning to code is very hard and you need a community of people to support you if you wanna learn to code while staying sane. That's where V School comes in.

Misleading and manipulative

Created 1 year ago
I was misled as to what I was "signing up" for. The coursework was decent and the instructors put effort into giving us a good experience (during the 12 week in person course). Anything they did teach would have been easier and free online. After the course ended, I was left to find jobs on my own. The best advice they had was to tailor my resume and to tell me every other week that "everyone is on their own journey."
Pros
Nice instructors.
Cons
No career, connections, interview help. Manipulative practices (ISA contracts). They tried to take the full 30k out of my bank account ("because I signed a contract") after my first contract role while I was trying to find my next gig...
