Academic Experience: This school is fantastic for more than one reason. They're always very warm and inviting and everyone is very helpful. Even the environment is wonderful. The chefs here are very knowledgeable and patient. If you have a question about food, they will give you an answer. I love that you can choose from different schedules so it fits your life. The school literally just sells itself. They didn't even have to tell me about their special connections and offers because I would be signing up anyways.

Bottom line: The ICC is fantastic and you should go. Now.

Tuition & Financial Aid: French Culinary Institute Review – When I decided to attend a culinary school, there were many schools to choose from. But the only school that made my heart skip a beat was the French Culinary Institute. The school tuition is really expensive and made me think not only twice but a million times before taking such a big leap. After doing my research( thank god for internet!) both on blogs, youtube, and random reviews; I decided to make an appointment and see the school myself. The financial aid advisor helped me through each step that I needed to take regarding my tuition, from scholarships, to grants, and most importantly loans. I was really scared to take such a step knowing that I would graduate with almost 55,000 is debt, even more! My advisor helped me with my FAFSA and made this step the easiest of them all. And I received an answer in just a few days! She also gave me a few loan options from a stafford loan which consist of a Direct Subsidized Stafford loan and a Unsubsidized Stafford loan, and the Salliemae loan to choose from. I called so many times and almost everyday to my advisor and I would get the same warm welcome! My experience with the financial aid office went quite smooth and my advisor contacts me till today informing me of new scholarships that I can apply to. In my opinion the value of education I'm going to receive is worth every penny since I'm going to be working with the most iconic Instructors in the field and I would be getting intensive training that will help me in the real world. And most importantly the FCI helps the student after graduation to find a job all over the world, and FCI students are wanted in the industry more then any other graduate student. My advise to any students considering the FCI is to apply to as many scholarships as they can, because every penny counts. Also if they are considering a loan they should start paying off their loan while in school rather then waiting after they graduate.

Career Services: Job Opportunities – One of the perks about my school is that you're connected to an alumni, and current student, website; after graduation, you can visit the site and view local job offers in your field. It's extremely convenient.

Academic Flexibility: French Culinary Institute – I've yet to have any difficulties concerning my school whatsoever. The curriculum has been easy to follow, and everything is straight-forward. It's also wonderful to have such a hands-on experience; I've learned so much more than I considered possible, and I haven't even gotten halfway through the course yet!

Campus Resources: The library is in the school and so is the Store room for all the extra food. It is very easy to get to.

Academic Experience: I love my fellow Chef's. We all learn what it is like in an actual kitchen. There is excitement and we all participate. The head Chef's make us feel equal. We are all given a task, sent out to do it, and then we all come back with different results. I appreciate what I learn there. The Chef's walk around and can give individual attention to any one person at a time. We are also learning skills to help us in a kitchen to understand what it is like to be there and do what normal chef's do everyday.

Campus Resources: Different Options – My school has no liberal arts courses which means that we start right into our program. We gain experience from the first day of class. We also meet people from different age ranges.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Not Alot of Options – There aren't alot of options which is why I'm trying to get scholarships. My parents couldn't qualify for the Plus loan so there aren't really any other choices for me.
