Hi, Kemist. I'll be beginning classes at CSCA in Pasadena in early April. While I can't yet tell you what's to be expected from day to day life as a CSCA student, I can tell you that the program appealed to me for a variety of reasons, not the least of which were location, practical course lineup, a nice middle ground as far as program length goes, and the fact that the school appears to be well connected as far as having its finger on the pulse of the SoCal restaurant and hotel kitchen employment scene.

There's a student orientation coming up for the Arpil 7th start date students. It's being held on March 29th at 10:00am. See the school's site for details. I'm told that unenrolled students are welcome to attend as long as they reserve a seat, and it would be a nice way to get an in-depth guided tour, meet some of the chef instructors, see the classroom facilities, and meet some soon-to-be students.

You two will have a fantastic time there!!!!! I wish you all the best in your studies. I toured the school with Jon Wilder and was very impressed. I wish I could've gone but it wasn't meant to be. Let us all know how you are progressing.

As a general rule and for your personal safety: Keepeth you buttocks out of North Hollywood. Find a nice pad in Rancho Cucamonga and freeway into Pasadena. Green street is fine but you have to get to it. The streets on the way there are not as "nice".

Seconded. I have a horrible sense of direction and get lost very easily. The streets quickly change from quiet and suburb-esque to ghetto and mean looking.

The student handbook reads like a Los Angeles "scared stiff" program. :lol:
