We had whopping 68 applications for DS15! They’re now a couple of months into their training, so it’s about time I show what they created to get into the DS. Let’s take a look at DS15’s applications.

As you look at these, you might notice the data sets are different. Why?

  • Some of them applied early enough and showed enough promise that we brought them in for an early interview.
  • Some were finalists from previous cohorts, e.g., DS14, and were offered a spot in DS15.
  • Some were offered the role after the final interviews for DS13.

What should you take from this? Apply early. You get more time to iterate on your application and you have the potential to be offered an early interview. Don’t wait! Get your applications in!
