I think AppAcademy you dont' have to pay. You only pay a portion of your starting salary if you get recruited for a job through their program.
AppAcademy's fee is as follows from their site...
You only pay us if you find a job as a developer after the program. In that case, the fee is 15% of your starting salary, payable over the first 6 months after you start working.
At the end of the course we run a hiring day. If you choose to work at any of our partner companies, we will refund $5,000 of your tuition. Of course, you are free to accept a position with any employer.
So if you get a DEV job you owe AppAcademy 15% of your salary no matter...BUT if you get hired by one of their partners they refund you $5k. Bottom line is you could still end up paying something around $7k
