The topic and milestone-based schedule are great; you are free to take many decisions but still get enough guidance to avoid straying away from the project goal. Instructor and student commitment is a bit low; there is very little feedback in the forums and submissions are sometimes so shallow that add little value to the reviewer.

An interesting problem to tackle. I really liked that you started with very raw data and needed to work on many cleaning methods. Good practice for real data science.

This course introduces data science with a emphasis on large scale processing. The project was challenging and very interesting. Applying with I learnt throughout the specialisation to a real problem is very exciting.
