3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Classes are on a set schedule and there is a specific order in which the teachers want things done. So some basic classes like math and english can transfer but most other classes do not.

Online Courses: There aren't many online courses, and as new students it can be difficult to get into the system. The online platform often has problems, but there's a great team of people to help with IT problems.

Career Services: There's people in the school whose sole job is to help students go on to find work when they get out of school, the final term of school is actually an internship.

Overall Experience: The classes are as varied as the teachers, some of whom have a rep for being difficult, but as long as you do what you're supposed to and treat them with respect there's very few to no problems.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: As one of the top 10 schools a degree from here is very valuable, and chefs across the country are constantly reaching out to the school for interns from here. With more internships available than students to fill them we are spot for choice on where to go and finding the right place for each person.

Academic Experience: The culinary program is very defined and set to make sure all students are work ready when they leave the school.

Overall Experience: The schedule is busy and before you know it you'll be taking a final, but the atmosphere is great. Plus the groups are small enough that everyone is getting what they need out of the process. However, it's a small school and gossip travels fast.

Online Courses: I have not had any online classes yet.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Being a female in the culinary field and not baking puts me in a weird position. I feel the men in my classes look down upon me but the teachers love me, they push me harder and have never made me cry yet. All the men at the school are really tall, and I am short. I wished the non culinary classes for example tech/writing were more mixed up with students from other classes. Everybody is accepted because we all wear the same uniform in class so there is nothing to judge but personality, and all of us are there because we have a passion for food.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school is not at fault for my parents being poor, but hearing the word financial aid just gives me a headache. I am getting what I am paying for although I wish I could have some of the money for my internship so I could go to the places I was offered jobs at. They need more workers in the financial aid office. Save up your whole life for college that is my tip.

Academic Experience: I am going to school for my Bachelors in Culinary Arts, the workload will get larger as I continue to go through school but that's okay because I love learning all this information. The job opportunities for internships is amazing with the career fair but it really sucked turning down amazing job offers because I could not afford to go there. The facility is great with supporting you and helping in any way they can.

Academic Experience: I do not choose my classes, they are given to me. The schedule is set and I go with it. All the professors are amazing, my teachers have so much information to tell you, they tell you so much in a day its hard to keep up sometimes but you can not hold that against them. The volunteer opportunities at NECI are so fun, I always want to sign up for so many but I have class at the same time. The classes I take all have helped me in one way or another.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It is hard to have a steady schedule due to the often class changes, but I do not need to do other things. I moved to Vermont to get a culinary degree at a great school and fully commit myself to that. My only frustration has been loans, grants, paying for the school. Having to find co signers because my parents were denied, the school pulls you from class if your paperwork etc. is not ready in time which just flustered me because my family had to keep waiting on the loans, and it wasn't are fault it took forever.

Career Services: To be completely honest I am only in my first year at New England Culinary Institute and have not looked into this information fully. I have no doubt in my mind I will find a high paying enjoyable job very quickly after I graduate from NECI.

Campus Resources: My input on campus is going to be more difficult to answer because I live off of campus, but I have visited the dorms on multiple occasions. NECI provides each student a gym membership, the gym establishments are wonderful. The library at NECI is weak, I love to read and have gone to enormous libraries so it is disappointing but the library in town is across the street from the school building. NECI needs more activities to do that are not culinary related, other than that the school is great on resources on campus.

Campus Quality: New England Culinary Institute is not like any other college my friends are attending. There is no drinking, partying, late nights, or pajamas to class here at NECI it is strict but for all good intention. When you have a seven hour class, and than a three hour class after that, and your class schedule changes every three weeks exams come fast and time fly's by. NECI is unique in so many ways I tasted wine my first month in college at school for a class, the class to teacher ratio is incredible. The only thing I would change is having other activities to do on campus, but when your trying to become the best constant focus is needed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have a passion for what I do, and NECI helps me reach my goals of becoming a great chef, NECI pushes me to try harder. I did a volunteer day with the head pastry chef at NECI for the holidays where I got to decorate Christmas cookies with little children all day, it was an unforgettable experience. Along with my volunteer work with Chef Jim where I helped judge a junior chef competition. All of my teachers have made an impact on my life as a person and culinary student. I made the best decision of my life by choosing to attend New England Culinary Institute, small class to teacher ratio, all hands on work to show what the industry is exactly like, and the teachers care. If I could choose my college all over again I only would have changed my start date at NECI so right when I finished high school I could have started school the next week. I never complain about class, I look forward to going to school I love everything about New England Culinary Institute.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Phone calls and emails were not returned which was very very frustrating. If you are persistent you will get the answers you need.
