    If you had to pick based on experience and word of mouth from co-workers which Le Cordon Bleu campus in the USA seems to turn out the best students. I'm looking into Ottowa but since it's hard to get a loan to cover foreign schools I might be stuck using my gi bill for a campus here in the US and just wanted to attend the best campus. Willing to move anywhere!

    I'm a veteran too, be careful. If you ever plan on  owning your own restaurant, it'd be wiser to get a business degree instead of going to culinary school.

    That being said, it's all up to the attitude of the individual, sure teachers can teach, and there might be some really good ones, but as the saying goes: You can lead a horse to water, you can't make it drink.

    I saw a lot of students graduate only to work at outback steakhouse. Taking an internship/apprenticeship/stage in a kitchen is more beneficial in my opinion.

    That being said, I would go to school in New York since they have one of the best culinary scenes in America, and your classmates and chefs you network with may be able to hook you up with an entry level position somewhere nice.
