I’ve recently attended a a/A webinar which compared the 16 and 24 week software engineering immersive. The presenter allowed for a Q&A after their presentation and so one of the questions that I had asked was: “What are the acceptance rates for the 16 and 24-week program?” I was told that these rates hover around 4%. That is staggeringly low! I’ve also come across many recent a/A alumni Linkedin profiles which indicate that he/she completed a program with a 4% acceptance rate. A distinguishable achievement, indeed.
My question here is: Where do these statistics come from? Are these rates recent? Also, have (acceptance) rates increased (or perhaps decreased) since this figure was once established?
