Wanta BE a Chef
I attended AIMS off I35 in Dallas area. I was one of the few who paid my tuition in full before I started classes when they were in the Downtown school. Upon starting class I was told if I decided within half way through my school I didn't want to finish I could get half of the 18,000.00 back, I did decide that it wasn't the school for me, although the instructors were really great. It was the administration and the Owner of the school that left a really bad taste in my mouth. It took me over 3 months to get a refund and if I had not been at that school every day asking to speak with the owner and wanting my money back I would have been swept under the rug and been out 9,000 dollars. I drive by the location where I attended the school almost daily and the banner they had above the door is draped falling down and not a sign of anyone there for a very long time. One of the BIG selling points for the class was that you could return at anytime and retake a class at no charge....How can that happen when there is no School??? I wish you all the luck in your culinary venture, I actually had clients before I left the school and have continued to work as a private chef for some of Dallas' best.
I know this school was shut down for Fraud but not sure exactly when? Does anyone know? I wouldn't recommend it to anyone at all. I went back in 2006 for the fall semester and we had instructor after instructor and one of them was a student that had just finished his last day my second week there. I don't think I really learned much at all.
