Thanks to the new GI Bill, I am separating from service and joining the National Guard to finish out my service and earn my golden nugget (retirement). I am 36 years old young, and, thank to the American taxpayer, completely open to my choice of culinary education!
While I understand that CIA and LCB probably get a lot of interest based simply on the premise of name recognition, I am interested in Kendall College in Chicago. I read they had won an award for Culinary education back in 2008, so I guess my question is:
How much (if anything) do I lose by not going to one of those self titled premier institutions? I am a Father of three, so if attending one of those two institutions would help me in the industry by virtue of name alone in procuring a job....I'm all for it.
That being said, I keep hearing that Chef's absolutely love the experience at Kendall College. For those of you that hire...or with industry experience...what do you think?
I am probably a minority in the fact that cost, is no issue, so I want the best education I can get my hands on with the best post-graduation opportunities!!!
Thanks in advance
