    hi again, i was wondering what classes J&W have for Freshman...and if you need any expieriances in cooking before you go there. so you think it would be a good idea to go to a Boces school before i go, or would it not make a differance :confused: .
    thanx for all your help. :p

    Ashley,
    You may want to get in touch with the Admissions folks at J&W. They are very helpful and can give you some guidance. At my school, we have an articulation agreement with J&W and, as such, they provide our students with some credits. So, perhaps a vo-tech program prior to attending may be to your benefit. As for experience, I do not think (somebody correct me if I am wrong) they require prior experience to attend. Good luck with your schooling.
