We want to get to know you!

Thanks for your interest in COOP (that's koh-op, by the way). We're excited to keep growing in NYC, where we've already run ten cohorts, and expand to the SF Bay Area this fall.

The program runs 200 hours spread over four months, and cohorts meet every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening, 6:30 to 9:30pm.

We are now accepting applications for Fall 2016, and we'll start interviewing in June.  Offers will be made on a rolling basis—apply early to secure a spot!

But enough about us—let's talk about you

Please take a few minutes to answer these questions. Some are goofy and others are more serious—we're just trying to get a sense of what drives you and how you would contribute to your cohort.

In any case, thanks in advance for your thoughtful and candid answers!
