I think this should be posted in another section but I am not sure where. I am considering attending FCI soon and I wanted to know the average starting salary of someone who graduated culinary school and starts working in NY. I have heard from people online that starting is 19k but it goes higher with time. Then I read online that in ny its 16,000 but i think that cannot be true cause youd never be able to survive. So I just wanted to know before I sign up for an education that will leave me in debt that when I finish will I be able to take care of myself at least?
