What type of job
I suppose it depends on what you are looking for. If you want to get into coding to beef up your resume for a different type of job or just want to figure out how to make your own app you might choose the free version. But if you want to get a job coding I'd want more info about the refund or job offer. If the job offer is a three month contract position it might not pay for the nine months of schooling and living expenses.

Placement or refund of tuition fee
"Online education pioneer Udacity on Wednesday said it will allow students to pay more for the developer-oriented course material it makes available for free on its website. In return, the company promises graduates a job within six months or a full tuition refund."

Thomas, it's a good model and can have a good attention from job aspirants. I think majority of students may willing to pay the higher fee because for them placement is more important.

Fire Sale?
Why do I feel I've landed in the middle of a Buy One Get One Free or 2 for 1 sale. 


I'd rather be in a training program at Goldman.
