J&W Miami is it hard to get in ? Thinking of Transferring from LCB

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Ok so even though i really have been having a great time in School and really love it 
i have switched to 2 classes i was in the morning that class was full of children that where grown adults 

so then i switched to the Afternoon 
I am doing ok im a  A/B  Student i have a GPA as of the end of Spring break that was a 4.0  but the new instructor in foundations 2 it is much harder but i live the guy don't get me wrong Chef is awesome but not easy to work with but he is fair i am currently in the A when you put all the grades together but i have been getting more Bs this class then last 

 

but anyways now im stuck in a class with a few pepole who i like are nice but the other 4 that i can't stand are some imature adults who act like they are from the hood and getto always talking trash 

pretending they are some thugs   2 who talk about drugs  1 who claims to be a crack dealer 

and 1 who i am always get witts end with and want to just do something to him but im not 

i have complaied several times i just spoke with the Exectutive chef today i called him on my drive home 

and he said he would deal with this  class mate so i hope that this crap gets taken care of but if it doesn't 

I am ready to switch to a Different school 

I am thinking id like to apply for J&W in Miami but wondering how hard is it to get in 


Currently 

i am a honor student in LCB i am a Student Ambassador for the school i put in alot of over time Volunteer time to help out and i am always trying to be better 

do i have a chance ?

JWU isn't very hard to get in but it will cost more than LCB. If you go for it I would suggest the Providence campus that school is built predomenitaly for Culinary and Miami is mostly for criminal justice.

admisions at JWU  told me it 25k and change   per year

i don't mind spending more 

it comes out to like 13k more then LCB  but with my Pell Grants it's only like going to be 3k more a year out of my pocket i think 

but not sure if i want to move all the way up north again just moved to FL from Ohio a year ago 

 

i am currently on Leave of Absense aproved from school for the next 2 week and maybe even longer if it takes longer for my foot to heal 

i was in much pain last week went to the Podiatry Dr and he told me i have a Fractured Metatarsal bone in my foot 

so thats why i am in so much pain 

 

Dr told me could take up to 6 weeks to heal 

i put in a 2 week leave of absence from school hoping that i will recover by the 20th when the next class Module starts if not then i will have to take an additional 6 weeks off untill the Next Module starts and i hate to have to do that 

 

but hey atleast fracturing my foot got me time away from the jerk in class lmao  but no seriously this just sucks 

 

I am going to speak with the Executive Chef if not well in 2 weeks and see if perhaps he would consider bumping me ahead a few classes and put me in a Gen ED class and then after that i can move back to Foundations 2 where i should be right now 

 

but atleast ill be in  school  working for what i want in life in a class where i don't have to be on my feet so i can let my foot heal 

so i hope that they allow me to do that if not better for the next class

That's the cost per year. So it's 2 years for our Associates and 4 for the Bachelors.

On a side note I wish you a speedy recovery. Injuries like that are never a good thing to deal with.

im not going for the Bachelors atleast not now  im going for the Associates so yes 2 years at 25k per year   so 50k  

about 13-14k more then LCB   

but also i think JWU  is 2  full years  where LCB is just 18 months not including the 3 month externship
