5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The CIA is the best college for Culinary and Baking. It is really expensive and it is almost impossible to get financial aid or any scholarship if you are an international student.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Aside from the price, I absolutely love the institute. I have learned so much and can very easily see myself following in the footsteps of accomplished chefs. The burning passion everyone has for food is almost palpable. I would choose The CIA over again in a heartbeat.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you choose to attend this school, you already know how working in a real kitchen it and The CIA tries to mimic that as much as possible. The chefs are very helpful yet they push you to achieve the most you possibly can. The class sizes vary but it is up to the people in your class to make it work smoothly.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What is comes down to is the willingness of the individual to put in the effort to succeed. The school is very friendly and will help students who have career-aimed questions. They go out of their way to emphasize networking and strongly encourage attendance at career fairs held on-campus.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses at this school and don't plan to.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: There is a huge diversity of students but the one things they all have in common is their love of food. It is that love that binds everyone together. Whether you are speaking to someone for the first time or the tenth, most people are very appreciative of your opinion. The school itself has a pretty wide range of students since it is very renown.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid is determined by SAT scores, FAFSA and overall need for aid. Scholarships are given but depending on how much in need you are is how much you will receive. APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS!

4 College Freshman

Career Services: The institute provides and online data-base which is available forever once you have attended.

this gives you unlimited access to job offers all over the word. The CIA is fantastic about networking.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Since I attend a specialized school, the courses are not easy, yet the chefs are all very helpful. The workload is intense, the facilities are up to par and the curriculum is user-friendly.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: We are not given the option to choose our classes during the associates program but there is a decent variety offered for bachelors.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The facilities themselves are somewhat outdated yet the staff is very helpful.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I heard the schedule is very strict and is like traditional high school, but thats how you train a chef to be the best chef. You have to instill getting up early and knowing how to properly execute techniques without being slow, messy, or sloppy.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone is very friendly and helpful. It's like everybody is friends.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Haven't seen any yet. Hopefully very soon.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone has been very helpful in assisting me and they really want me to succeed in their school! They constantly call me each week to remind me that if I had forgotten a document or had not submit something.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: Im not sure there is an online course. Culinary arts is more of a visual and hands on type of study.

College Sophomore

Student Body: Haven't been but there is a Facebook page for all who are attending each year and everyone was friendly and communicating a lot! Very cool!

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its really expensive, but probably where I would get my money's worth. Other culinary schools are not too much cheaper and I have heard from fellow kitchen workers and managers that most culinary schools do not instill a proper education.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: First, you get a job in one of their restaurants! Then, they require an externship for a few months of vigorous training at one of their many restaurants around the world. This would definitely help a post-grad school.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I always hear that this school is the best and you will learn the most. When I visited the school, I saw the best equipment and it looked like they were very clean and organized.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: All the classes and clubs sound so interesting! Everything culinary related and more interesting than learning about common things which I would never use in my everyday life.

Campus Resources: I haven't started school yet. My entry date is May 4, 2015.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are a great number of activities on campus available for us.
