Make sure that you choose a school where you feel comfortable at according to area, and number of students. If you do not like to be away from home, do not move far away or you will get homesick, which willl affect your learning abilities and ability to enjoy your campus life. I was able to choose whatever school I wanted without worrying about cost. That way you chose on the merits of the school. I knew what I wanted to do and chose a school that specializes in that one career. If you attended a small high school, really think about wether you want a large school with big classes or the smaller school with small classes and where you will be able to get to know your classmates and professors. Whatever you do, enjoy the process and check out all the schools you can in person, chcking out the campus and towns around it.
Being able to just bake everyday and not have to worry about writing papers or taking classes not retaing to the art of cooking.
It is Far from home.
I wish I had known how strict they would be about behavioral infractions
The school demands highly from the students to perform well academically and in all practical classes. To survive the program, students need to have passion in the field of culinary arts and be able to do well in analytical subjects like maths and accounting. They will be in a more competitive standing if they have some experience working in the kitchen and restaurant environement as most of the courses involve food preparation and how to control its quality and cost.
The Culinary Institute of America is a highly reputable school filled with professional and highly experienced chefs giving you the knowledge you are searching for to become successful within your field.
Someone who is completely aware that the Culinary field is for them. Do not choose it if you are undecided! Know what you want and how you are going to go about acheiving it.
Many of the classmates that I have met on campus are determined, artistic, excited to be here, friendly and encouraging.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the limited transportation they provide. I often find myself bored on the weekends. Also I find my dorm bathrooms disgusting.
I didn't particularly look into other schools. However, I think its great that our students serve other students. I like the Kitchens on campus compared to others that I have seen.
The things I brag about to my friends are a grocery list long just a few are, meeting Anthony Bourdain after class one day just walking around campus and getting my chef hat signed by him next to his late 60?s sky blue Lincoln (nice classic boat!!!), baking recipes invented by Jackie-O?s personal pastry Chef, but the sickest thing I brag about is Chef Chang. Chef Chang does a demo on You Tube of her butchering a whole chicken in 12 seconds, she butchered five whole chickens in less than one minute with a cleaver in class.
Teaching students to perform well in culinary/pastry arts as well as in the hospitality industry.
