From what we've seen - there is no such thing as BEST, especially among the top schools with strong reviews and placement records. There is only such a thing as a good fit. Here are some general tips:
1) Try to assess what your own career goals are and find the school that caters to those needs.
2) The other thing to pay attention is cultural fit.
3) Finally - we'd recommend talking to instructors and alumni from the schools and getting their opinion/vibe. Those things are very important since you will be spending 100s of hours with the people at the school.
4) Make sure you pay their campus a visit too. The environment can have a big impact on your ability to learn.
Lastly, we have assembled a shortlist here - https://www.switchup.org/locations/nyc-coding-bootcamp - It is by no means comprehensive, but it's a good start and we hope that you find what you need!
Fullstack Academy is on a level of its own.
Flatiron and Dev Bootcamp cannot really compare.
