The Culinary Institute of America Reviews
However there’s aspects of the school that irk me. The lack of communication between different areas of administration and staff is astounding. Personally, I experienced this firsthand when applying for Bachelors classes. I spoke to my advisor about testing out of a class, and she assured me that I’d be able to register for the rest of my classes. However, when I tried to register, I found a series of hoops I now had to jump through that hadn’t been communicated. Hoops that could have been avoided if my advisor had talked to the person in charge of class registration. Or communicated to me so I could avoid them.
