So I've ruled out PICA in Vancouver because it would be far too much a pain to go through moving across North America, into another country, and all the red tape that comes with it just to go to culinary school for a year. I'm now debating between NECI and JWU - Providence. Both are going to cost the same and both have very good reputations. I've been looking at student-teacher ratios, the cities of Providence and Montpelier, graduation rates, student satisfaction, and other necessary details. I'm open to hearing the pros and cons of both, especially from those who have/are currently attending these schools and who has lived in the areas of both cities.
Also, I'm considering a career as a food editor and am wondering if it would behoove me to reconsider doing Baking & Pastry Arts and do Culinary Arts instead.
Thanks in advance for any help.
