1871 Chicago Scholarship

The Bootcamp Prep Guarantee

This course prepares you for the technical portion of the Fullstack admissions process but completion of this course does not guarantee acceptance to our Software Engineering Immersive, Remote Immersive, or Flex Immersive programs. Fullstack's admissions is one of the most rigorous in the industry, and we look for many qualities beyond just technical expertise. You will still need to complete the same coding assessment and interview process as all other Fullstack applicants. If you are accepted into any of Fullstack's immersive programs, then $2,250 of the tuition from this course will count towards your tuition for the immersive program. This also applies to tuition for Fullstack's partner school Grace Hopper Academy.

How does the guarantee work?

If you successfully complete Bootcamp Prep, you should be prepared for admission into one of the following schools:

  • Coding Dojo
  • Dev Bootcamp
  • Flatiron School
  • Fullstack Academy
  • Galvanize
  • General Assembly
  • Grace Hopper Academy
  • Hack Reactor
  • Launch Academy
  • Turing School

If you make a good faith effort to apply to all schools listed above within 3 months of completing this course and are not able to gain admission, we will refund 100% of your tuition.

Admissions for Bootcamp Prep

Bootcamp Prep at Fullstack has a light admissions process. Although the course is designed for beginners, the curriculum starts with the assumption that students have basic familiarity with JavaScript syntax. This allows the class to move at a good pace and yield quality outcomes for students.

There are 2 components of admissions for Bootcamp Prep:

  1. Several short application questions, completed when submitting a deposit
  2. A short Coding Admissions Assessment, completed after submitting the deposit

The Bootcamp Prep Admissions Assessment has “easy” level questions on topics like Strings, Arrays, and Loops. Completing the Codecademy JavaScript track is likely enough preparation for it, though taking a video-based course like JavaScript Jumpstart is even better. You get access to JavaScript Jumpstart when you submit your deposit for Bootcamp Prep, and can take that before completing the admissions test.

Admissions Process

  1. Submit a $450 deposit, along with admissions questions, to reserve a spot in your desired Bootcamp Prep cohort
  2. After submitting the deposit, you’re invited to the admissions test, and given 1 week to complete it. You’ll also get access to JavaScript Jumpstart Online (typically takes 10-12 hours to complete), which is very good preparation for the test.
  3. After you take the assessment, Fullstack gets back to you in a few days to let you know the outcome.
  4. If you pass the test and are accepted, your spot in Bootcamp Prep will be confirmed and you’re ready to start class on Day 1.
  5. If you do not pass the test, you will have the option to defer to the next Bootcamp Prep cohort (free of charge), or can choose to receive a full refund of your deposit.
