Student Body: I'm Going to school this November, and while I was there the students were very accepting of me and had high praises of the student body. Socializing and taking new students under their wings to make them feel like they are accepted.

Tuition & Financial Aid: From a lot of hard work and studying. I learned in my first class that your own drive and dedication is the key to your success in any venture you take in life.

Campus Resources: The physical library is a little lacking. They do have an extensive online library though with scientific journals as well as recipe books. The ironing room is very useful for those who don't own irons at home. The line can get pretty long sometimes though. They also have vending machines with coffee and snacks with a good variety.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school has many clubs you can join for a range of things. The wine club, Sauce club, Molecular Gastronomy club, etc. They also have volunteer tutors who can help with a range of things from math to knife cuts. They also keep you up to date on volunteer events to help you gain experience as well as helping secure externships. They have an ironing room, library, lots of computers, etc to help students.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is well worth it. I learn a lot every day. It was pretty east to finish the financial aid process. The FAFSA took forever to go through though. Which wasn't the school's fault. The FAFSA needs to be finished early on. They provide some easy to get grants and scholarships so just ask the financial aid representatives for help.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: There are three different class times in a day to choose from. Morning, evening and night classes are all available, as well as online. Many credits transfer over and the teachers and administrators will make a good effort to work wit you.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Sometimes a computer or to won't connect to the internet but there are many available to use. They provide a printer, wifi, many computers, etc.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe that the education that I am receiving is great, and going through the process of financial aid was really easy, because someone was there to help me every step of the way.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The teachers make a reasonable accommodation, like if you have a family emergancy some teachers will let you either make it up in an earlier class or later class. Though sometimes they can't really do anything about it. The administration they are very professional and they will and can do anything in their power to help you to your goal.

Tuition & Financial Aid: If you are a Vet its worth it because you are more out to find a job. Financial aid has been complicated at times but not because of the school. I feel the Tuition is fair I have check other culinary schools and they are way more. I feel the education is worth the tuition. My tip to financial aid is sta on it with Fafsa and get them done. Then email the financial aid office or call to just let them know you are done doing it.

Career Services: For those who have graduated from Le Cordon Bleu that I have talked to have been able to move on to great chef jobs in Las Vegas Casinos, Florida hotels, Some are working in Utah at ski lifts, and then you have thoughs who have gone to work for Sandals Resorts. The career center does help you with finding jobs by giving a weekly list of Restaurants in the area that are hiring. They also help you get your Resume done in professional way.
The Alumni Network has been great for me I have met alot of chefs that have gone to Le Cordon Bleu. I have my foot in the door because of that. Job prospects because of the Career Center, Alumni Network, and Donating time to Ronald McDonald House also joining in the clubs and doing extra free classes they do on the weekends really helps. Its what you put into the school on learning is how much you get out of it.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education is well worth the almost twenty thousand dollars they ask for tuition for their Culinary Arts one-year program.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The main reason I chose this school is because the main focus of Le Cordon Bleu is it's Culinary Arts program. I have wanted to become a chef for a while now and im finally on my way to acheiving that dream.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Everyone there wants you to be the best you can be. The staff works hard to make sure you are having an excellent experience and will do as much as the can if you aren't, to make it better. The encouragement at LCB is really awesome. The Chefs are very knowledgeable and really want to be there sharing their techniques.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Showing up everyday, taking complete notes. Asking questions and making an effort to be the best you can be will earn you this grade. Tutoring is available if you find yourself needing more time in certain areas, its all about work ethic at LCB. Those who put the most time into their craft, gain the most reward. It is a very fair system.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: I'm not attending online courses. I attend the school on campus. The overall experiences was ok but I wish I could have been told more about paying for college. I'm so passionate about my future that I didn't allow no one to stop me, so I took care of my business.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I really like my instructor, she's very helpful and gave me the tools I needed to start my first week in school. She make sure she explain the lessons for you to understand. Thanks Chef Suzie. As for the the administration, they could have been a little more helpful instead of shutting me down.

5 College Senior

Career Services: The Career Services at Le Cordon Bleu was very helpful even before I became a student there. They gave my options for employment because I'm currently out of work. I'm thankful to have Career Services at Le Cordon Bleu.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Good People, Horrible Phones. I have not had any issues with the Financial Aid department when it came to my Grants and Loans. What I did have an issue with was the communication while on the phone. I had repeat myself more then once as well as ask them to repeat themselves. It's just a horrible time trying to communicate with them when you can't hear what they are saying.

Academic Experience: High Expectations – I'm a new student attending the Le Cordon Bleu College online course. It's a 21 month program for my Associates in Hospitality and Mangement. So far my Admissions Councelor has been above and beyond, listening to every questions and concern I had and making me that much excited for the program. Even Financial Aide has been very good and it's been a no stress process from day one. As far as the professors, they are easy to reach and open to any questions a student might have as well as great personalities!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Still Happy With My Choice – I moved halfway across the country to go to school here and I still love every minute of it!

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Pretty Good – The school has a private library that is filled with computers which any student has full access to and that has a printer for just the students
