About BloomTech

Location: Online

Lambda School is an online coding bootcamp that trains people to become software engineers, data scientists, or backend developers at no up-front cost. The computer science academy offers full-time, 6-month programs for Web Development and Data Science,... Read More

Lambda School's mission is to "remove every possible barrier to a world-class education and become the best place in the world to launch a new career." To fulfill this mission, they offer a deferred tuition model, so students only pay a percentage of income after they accept a job, and only if they're making at least $50k per year. Other tuition options include tuition installments and discounted upfront tuition.

During the application process, prospective students must complete the precourse work or entrance tests as well as provide a high school diploma, GED certificate, or college transcript.

"Dishonest, total scam."

The recruiters said that no prior coding experience was required and that we would be taught what we needed know rather than having to teach ourselves. I became skeptical of both when I was doing the test to see if I could be admitted. Over half of the... Read More
