I haven't taken classes with them myself, but I know a few people who have. I don't have a particularly good impression of GA. I'm a graduate of another bootcamp, and it worked out great for me but I'm very cautious about recommending bootcamps in general and if I *were* recommending bootcamps GA would not be the first on the list. I'm most skeptical of programs like Project Management etc.; the pure tech programs and even the UX/UI programs seem less sketchy.

I graduated from another web dev bootcamp and I considered GA for a while. While I was doing my research, there were few negative reviews toward their program, and it's largely due to the camp rapid expansion and unable to maintain quality. 

With that said, my friend went thru the camp a year ago and landed a job with no issue.

Where do you live? Have you check out other Bootcamp in the area? Talk with recent grad and alumni. Ask them about their job hunt.
