My review

The Good:

The best thing about this school is the intangibles the school teaches you without realizing it. I have been in the field for four years now and I can tell you the greatest things I learned is how to debug, how to find answers, and how to learn rapidly. I think those are assets every company looks for.

As for learning how to program I think they do a phenomenal job, you get a broad variety of technologies to try and learn which helps you figure out your personal strengths before you hit the job force. You also are ready to contribute your first day on the job.

In terms of the career service I think they do a great job. In every graduating class most of the graduates have jobs lined up.

The Bad:

There are many things that are considered bad about the school most of which I don't see as a problem. I actually think the worst part of the school is the emphasis on female students. I understand that based on their statistics that females make more money after graduation then males. I also would like to point out that number of women graduating are significantly fewer then the men. It's not a fair comparison. Also because of this marketing women students get a stigma and have trouble during their time at Neumont. My wife is also an alum from Neumont and I am fully aware of the struggles she had to deal with from other students. The guys would try to keep her from working on things just cause she is female or a stigma that she isn't very good or other personal stigmas that aren't very fair.

In terms of the tuition, yes it's steep. It's a heavy price there is no doubt about it. When I recommended Neumont to anyone I always highlight the tuition as a warning. More to make them aware, if you aren't serious about programming I wouldn't recommended going. It's horrible to drop out and have a steep tuition to pay. Also if you haven't programmed before, try it before you come. You would hate to have a price for something you don't end up liking. But I do have to say the school is worth it if you make it through it.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I think the knowledge you learn from the school, peers, and just from having to survive more then prepares you for the real world and makes you a valuable asset for the real world.
