    At home cook
    Hello, I am strongly considering enrolling in the CIA in Hyde Park,NY for AOS in pastry and baking. Right now I am in the process of fulfilling my required 6 months of work experience; as an assistant at a local bakery.In addition I have worked as bus boy.expeditor,runner and a short stay as prep cook. My questions are

    (1) If I do enroll at the CIA what would the approximate cost of everything including an AOS,books,living expense ect. ?

    (2)Do I need a car if I am living on campus?

    (3) What are the dorms like(single,dbl,ect)?

    (4)what is the overall feeling you get from the instructors?

    (5) Does the CIA have international connections for students who want to study abroad?

    -Thank you in advance for your help.

    There are a lot of scholarships available, I think it's around 8k a semsester.


    (2)Do I need a car if I am living on campus?
    Not really. There are plenty of people with cars that you could hitch a ride with, however there really isn't anything within walking distance other than a bar.

    (3) What are the dorms like(single,dbl,ect)?
    Not many singles. I think there are 3 on the whole campus not including the RA's rooms.

    (4)what is the overall feeling you get from the instructors?
    I can't say much for the Baking and Pastry instructors but I've loved my Chefs so far.

    (5) Does the CIA have international connections for students who want to study abroad?
    Yes. You can go abroad for your extern but you must speak the language.

    -Thank you in advance for your help.
