To get into DS30, the team worked with data about either fish counts in the UK or restaurant inspections in New York. They all went with a long-form storytelling type of viz. Have a look for inspiration for your own application.

The quality of applications for a place in the DS has gotten better and better. It's not all about the application, but they do give you good insight into part of what we are looking for. Check out what DS27 created.

When you make it to the final interviews, there are four possible outcomes, three of which are positive: 1. You get offered a spot in the cohort you are interviewing for. 2. You get offered a spot in a future cohort. 3. You get asked back for the final interviews for the next cohort. 4

DS19 is finishing up their third week of training and DS20 final interviews are just two weeks away. It’s a good time for us to reflect back on DS19 and see what each of them created to get them into The Data School. As you look at these, you might notice the data sets are different

Let’s take a look at what it took to get into DS18. As you look at these, you might notice the data sets are different. Many of them joined us at different times. Some were offered positions when interviewing for prior cohorts. At least five of them had applied once before and didn’t get in

DS18 interviews are coming up next week, so I wanted to look back at what it took to get into DS17. We had another record number of applications for DS18, with nearly 200 candidates submitting their work. The benefits of our application is the diversity of candidates

It’s final interview day for DS11…20 interviews for two spots. I figured what better way to kick off the day than to show everyone what it took to get into DS10

With DS4 finishing this week and cohort 5 starting in less than two weeks, I thought it would be useful to see what it took for DS5 to get into The Data School. As part of the application process, we require people to submit something in Tableau Public. This can be with any data set they want

Our next cohort of The Data School begins their training in early October. I thought I’d share a bit of insight into their final interviews. First, let me explain how the interview process works. It’s a two-part interview, with one candidate in each of the two interviews, then they swap spots: 1
