### Considering a Data Science Bootcamps program ? Here are a few questions to ask, things to look for and look out for

**Background**: Data Science is a hybrid role. Having a background with the right mix of Quantitative skills, Programming, Statistics, Math, Business Acumen, Databases, and Machine Learning would probably work in your favor. 6 or 12 weeks is a very short time to learn these things from scratch.

**Cohort Makeup**: At most bootcamps part of your learning comes from lectures and interactions with the instructors, TA's and guest speakers. The other half comes from working and collaborating with your cohort mates on the course materials and projects. It is important that a cohort have people with a diversity of past educational / professional experiences. Your cohort mates will become your friends, co-workers, collaborators and maybe even co-founders.

**Placement Rate**: This is a really interesting one. A bootcamp with 100% placement may not always be the best choice. I've heard some bootcamps drop students who they feel may not be able to find a job and don't include them in the numbers. Prospective students have to dig deeper on the placement rates and ask the following questions:

- Percent of students placed in actual Data Science roles
- Percent of students placed within one month or three months of finishing the program
- Percent of students placed through Hiring Day
- Percent of students placed through an introduction that the bootcamp made
- Percent of students actually looking for a job post bootcamp
- Median Salaries for students placed
- Salary Range for students placed
