For those interested. The California Culinary Academy has recently lost it's priviledge to award the Le Cordon Bleu diploma along with it's AOS degree. I have a young lady in my class who left the school. Her opinion is that it's not worth it to go. As far as the diploma thing goes I don't know specifics yet. But somewhere in the admissions department paperwork got botched and thus no diploma. So if there are any students looking at the CCA for culinary education, look somewhere else. I emplore you to seek greener pastures. If you are spending your hard-earned money for a degree try the Culinary Institute of America or NECI (New England Culinary Institute). There are a host of others and not just these two. A big draw for the CCA was that they were offering the "coveted" "diploma". Maybe now they can offer directions to a more reputable school..........
