    I am gonna stop you there and say that BEFORE you enroll in any culinary school you need to go get some experience in a kitchen FIRST!!
    This is beneficial in two ways:
    1) By getting a job as a dishwasher/prep cook (starting points in the industry no matter if you have schooling of not) you will learn what it is like in a commercial kitchen, the lingo, the pace, the hours, etc.
    2) By getting the experience you will be much farther on than most people that go to culinary schools therefore when you graduate you will have a better chance at better positions. Also this will allow you the opportunity to see if you really LOVE cooking as a career in commercial kitchens. If you don't like it then you have saved thousands of dollars spent going to school learning a career that you will never use.
    Hope this makes sense and helps you!!
