Very information rich. Focused on the core concepts. The instructor is very engaged / engaging and brings a lot of energy. The program is fully focused on skills preparation so that you can wrap your hands around problems and come up with working solutions.
It is definitely worth it. The project based curriculum works and the type of people handling the class are very open to inputs - they almost require it. Having the bootcamp in key cities is also a big part of the experience - especially for me, an international student.
Talk with Metis graduates
- Hello, Do you offer ad-hoc tutoring services? I will be undergoing a data-science project and have a good base level of SQL and R, but I would like to have access to one of your tutors every once in a while for when I am encountering specific bugs in my code, or would like to understand what sort of model to apply to my data, and would like one-on-one help. If you do offer these services, can you give me an estimate as to how much it would be per hour? Thanks! Alison

The course is very fast paced. Definitely do your homework before it starts. There's also lots of extra material that you can learn on the side and come back to again and again.
Know what you are getting into. Think about what learning environment works for you - MOOC, Bootcamp, formal classes, etc. Each has its own pros and cons. Go in with the drive to learn and do great things - I understand that jobs are important but good jobs will follow a great project portfolio.
Casual, fast paced, you get out what you put in. Students are all friendly and non-competitive. Very supportive environment. If you need help, you just have to ask - but its up to you to be proactive.
Very friendly and open. Everyone is eager to help out and that makes for a pleasant learning environment. It is competitive in some ways, but you compete with yourself wanting to do a great job. The staff is really open to feedback as well - there's daily feedback and you can be very open.
Sergey is great. Very knowledgeable. He brings obvious expertise to the class. He also is all about getting the material into our heads. Never gets flustered. Answers every question. He has no ego about the learning process and encourages the class to find different approaches.
Hmm..I think the instructors could have been better at least for my cohort. Instructors shuffle every cohort so it really is hard to say. The TAs were awesome though. And with most things, how much you learn is largely a function of how much effort you put in. Then again, having the best instructors would help.
