There are two steps to getting into Y Combinator: The application and the interview. This class will cover how to write a good YC application (and the most common mistakes people make doing it), and how to prepare for your interview (to the extent you actually can).
We'll go over examples of real and successful YC applications and see what makes them good. Additionally, we'll cover what YC looks for in founders, strategies for preparing for the interview, and tips for recording your application video.
This class will be interesting to anyone who wants to know what applying to YC is really like, but it will be most helpful to anyone who's actually applying or intends to apply, because the advice will be direct and practical.
Note: This class will be co-taught by Nicholas Bergson-Shilcock and David Albert
