Hola, Gus. Many other people have asked the same question here -- if you look through other items on this board, you will find many answers.

My opinion is: first ask yourself what you want to learn, and what you want to do with the information and skills you learn. Then look at the schools, and talk to people there a lot, to find out which matches what you want better. And which one makes you feel more comfortable that you WILL be able to learn a lot.

How much time you spend in cooking school is not as important as how much you learn -- and that depends both on the school and on YOU. :)
