Though the school is full of very snooty

Jul 19 2013Other
Though the school is full of very snooty students, CIA does offer an okay education, the price is pretty ridiculous since most of the people there will most likely never make more than 50k a year doing culinary work in the real world. I have met some good people here though, but I wish I had went to another school.

The Culinary Institute Of America is by far

Oct 03 2013Other
The Culinary Institute Of America is by far the worst school, for one its said to be a premier culinary school but the food here is all nasty and disgusting. I've never had a good meal from this place. the food is like high quality dog food.

this places has the stupidest rules and is strick as anything for no reason.
in kitchen classes you have no creativity in your own mind to create something good. your forced into making there nasty food with the some old out dated recipes.

the teachers are condescending and are not very nice.
the facility truly sucks.this place puts you in the whole 80k for aos and 160 for bps and it is not worth it it is a money pit to no end. you do not get what you pay for hands down

This SCHOOL is SIMPLY NOT what it used

This SCHOOL is SIMPLY NOT what it used to BE PERIOD. DR RYAN has and will CONTINUE to Tarnish the Reputation of the CIA.

For the MONEY, 100k++++ there are MUCH better options. Look at what the students are doing NOW. IE a tow truck driver, postal worker etc.

The CIA presents it self as the Pinnacle Of the Best However it fails to meet those standards.
I was a studnet when MR. Metz was President and again when DR Ryan became president. the arrogance of the current admin is appaulling and frankly very sad for a hospitality school

IF your into partying and NOT having to do homework this is the place for you.
ITS a FACTORY not and Educational Insitution.
DR Ryan will only be able to ride on the coat tails so long.
I would NOT and WILL not HIRE a CIA alum. and I have the power to HIRE several EVERY year for many different postions and I see CIA and I pass it overa SAD state of Affairs.
