4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The science program is new and top notch. It's designed to train the next generation of Culinary scientists

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of classes doesn't really exist. you either have early morning class or slightly later class. Also, when I say early morning, I mean 6 am class.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: The professors are there to teach and some are very open to any kind of issues you may have; however, some are entirely the opposite.

5 College Freshman

Career Services: The alumni network is huge. The alumni are everywhere, and not just in the U.S.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are harsh, just like they should be in the real world, but some tend to take things above what the situation was.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Career center is very large. There were so many places to explore.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The workload is astronomical, but it is worth it in the long run

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: You mold to their schedule. You are either am or pm. Only way to change is if you have a job or you ask first to be assigned to it. No guarantee on changing times if you don't have a good reason.

4 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: The career center is very helpful in helping you find a job. The school has 2 career fairs a year.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The maximum number of student in our program is about 22 per class. The bad part is the limited number of chefs available to teach the same subject. We only have one chocolates chef! And truthfully the class duration even though they are a few days longer than Johnson & Wales are still too short. You only learn the basics in each class. There really isn't an option for you to take another higher level class once you decide what you want to specialize in, except for breads which offers two classes in the subject.

Overall Experience: The networking is why you are really here! The culinary part can be learned in any school with a good program. You are here because if you have the drive to excel the CIA name can get your foot in the door of practically any Michelin star restaurant.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The number of Baking and Pastry Chefs is very limited! You get stuck with whomever they give you. There is no choosing classes or picking your professors. They decide what time you start and with whom. That sucks!!!

Overall Experience: There are several school activities students can become involved in, but you can't loose perspective of why you are here. Whoever said chef school was easy, is very wrong. It's a lot of work and very competitive. The duration of classes are between 13-14 days. There is a lot of material to cover, but there is also lots of hands on training.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Some of the classes were harder than others but the professers and chefs were always there to give extra help to those who needed it except chef rowan johnson.

Overall Experience: Although the school is listed as one of the best there are still things it could improve on. I had both good and bad experiences at school but it doesnt change the fact that i want to be a chef.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: the workload is very manageable, I have learned a lot on how to manage my hw and study time wisely. the internship opportunities is amazing.

Overall Experience: It is a great school, I have only been there for one year so far, but I can say this past year has been a very educational and I have learned so much. It is very stressful but it is so worth it.
