Hi everyone. I applied to the Cooking and Hospitality Intitute of Chicago which is an Le Cordon Bleu school and was supposed to start in Feb/08. Well, with this site and other sources, I kept seeing the great advice to get a job in the industry first before commiting to school. So I emailed the admissions rep and told him I would not be attending CHIC. He asked me why and I told him that working full time and going to school full time would be good for me and that I had to take care of some things and so I needed to know how to withdraw from the school. He responds to me saying that I was onboard to start in Feb and have 5 months to plan. Then he tells me that I have "one of the lightest" schedule (I had the option of tranferring some classes from my college). But what got me all mad was that now he "guesses the dream isn't as strong as [I]) told [him]". What is that supposed to mean? I know his job is to try to get people to come and stay, but he doesn't know me. I was considering going back to that school once I got some experience, but now I just don't know. It has been two months since I "applied". Was it wrong for me to wait that long to back out? Thanks for the opinions.
