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.

"It will be hard but it will be worth it!"

I remember when I got my admissions into Lambda school in late 2019, one of the slides as part of the orientation read something like, "This is going to be hard!". They weren't lying, as someone who has gone through a five-year undergrad engineering course.... Read More

"Lambda is a great option to learn code with realistic tuition expectations and offers more than any other bootcamp."

I love Lambda school! The only con is that when they make changes, it can take a minute to be able to get everything in order. That being said, all changes are to make Lambda's experience better for students, and it's impressive with the growth they've... Read More

"I can't believe this, I feel scammed"

After I was a few Units in (3) and thus financially obligated to pay the ISA, they removed core components of the program. There are no more assigned team leads. There are no more standups with your classmates so you can discuss the same project and see... Read More

No upfront cost, you can sign and ISA. Sounds like a dream, too good to be true even! That's because it is. They will change up the curriculum mid-way through your learning experience and expect you to just accept it and not complain. If you make to much... Read More

"Lambda School is a nightmare with good marketing"

Cons:
1. Lambda School presents itself as a risk free choice to break into coding but instead they play favorites and defames anyone who gives feedback they don't like. Several students were removed for questioning the eratic school and its staff.

2. They... Read More

3. The CEO claims that he routinely will download all data from the Slack, including your personal inbox, so there is zero privacy in the school.

4. They make up things on the fly without set policies based on them doing whatever they can to make it seem like it's rosy to their investors.

5. The CEO was formerly homeless and now his school is being given millions, he seems to think being dishonest about the school justifies the means.

6. They protect toxic and abusive students claiming they "can't police freedom of speech".

7. The grading is arbitrary by students who may or may not fully understand what they're grading.

8. The students who become TAs aren't necessarily trained in anything, even the curriculum. They're given a book of the answers and told to be confident even about things they don't understand.

Pros:

1. You have access to the CEO if you want that..
