My daughter is looking to enroll in the Art Institute, the culinary arts in particular.  Is anyone here an alumni or did any of your kids attend?  I would love to hear your thoughts/opinions on the school.  Thank you!

The Art Institiute doesn't have a culinary program.

That said, I can get your daughter in touch with alumni, and talk to her about life in Chicago. Send me a message offlist...

Actually they do, they have 4 areas of study: design, fashion, media arts and culinary.  They aren't all available at all schools however.  So it depends on what school she's looking at whether it is available or not.

We are looking into the Sacramento one, we are 1 hour north of there.starlight1968 how was job placement?  Being near Sac and the Napa valley, along wth San Francisco we have some huge pluses, but with that said, so does Chicago, so how was job placement assistance?

 Dallas DOES have Culinary.  My brother in Law graduated from it over a year ago. 

TO POSTER:  The one here in Dallas is very good.  My BIL had a job the whole time he was attending, got a really good one when he moved to Seattle (the schools try to link w/each other to help the kids find places in other states).  AND, when he got back here to Texas they moved to Austin and he now works at a up/coming place. 

It seems to be a respected degreed place to busi. as he's had no down time between jobs when moving really, even state to state.

My dd wants to go to culinary school.  Dad says she has to get a bachelors degree in business, then culinary school after if she is still interested.
