So, I have a dilemma. After being in the industry for 8 years, I'm finally ready to go to culinary school. I've worked in fine dining for about 5 years and I am currently general manager of a coffee shop. I'm ready to get back to the kitchen and I feel this will help me tremendously. The problem, however, is choosing a school. I'm married and my wife has a good job and is happy where she is, so moving isn't an option. I have to keep my current job, so it will pretty much be part time school and will be commuting. I live in middle Georgia and all the schools I'm looking at are in Atlanta. The big question is, if I get a tech school associates degree and then transfer to either Le Cordon Bleu or Georgia State for a bachelors, will this look worse than a full degree from LCB? I'm not going to lie, money is an issue, which makes the tech school option very attractive. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
