We're open to other cities as well, but we know the market very well in NYC and San Francisco area. We want to encourage people to seriously consider relocating to NYC or San Francisco area because companies in those areas are great places to kick off careers. The types of people you'll meet and the types of projects you'll work on will set a strong foundation for a rewarding career no matter where you move to years in the future.
That said, we realize not everyone can relocate. In general, admissions to Capstone considers the student and the location in conjunction. This means that no city is automatically disqualified, but the more remote the location, the more excellent the student must be. It's not possible for us to say whether a city can be considered for Capstone without also talking about which student it is that we're considering. Again, the location and the student are considered together.
As a general guidance, we want to encourage people to relocate to NYC and San Francisco area and will give preference to those who can, but please reach out even if you can't and maybe we can still work with you.
Besides NYC and SFBA, we are also optimistic about Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Toronto.
Please note that if you're new to Launch School, it will not be possible for us to answer any questions about the city because we do not have any information about you. We only have information about you after you complete our assessments in the Core Curriculum.
