First, it would be helpful to show them that you could honestly have a career in the culinary arts. Perhaps recommendations from a home eq or baking teacher would help. Second, you'd have to show them WHY a normal college would not benefit you. Third, I'm sure they're concerned about the cost of a culinary school, as that is a special vocational college. See if there is either financial aid, scholarships, or other programs available for you. Fourth, location. Try finding a culinary college that is somewhat close to you, so you can convince them that you'd be able to visit. Show them a 'normal'college that you'd be willing to go to, and pick it far away.

What makes a school a college or a university?

In modern higher education the distinction and use of college as opposed to university is a semantical term, rather than one based on objective naming criteria. In simplest terms the nomenclature of college or university is the choice of its leadership. By precedence a college was either a singular school of a discipline or distinct unit/faculty of a university. Thus a university was/is/can be comprised of individual colleges. That being said a school named a college can still have individual faculties/departments demonstrating the ambiguous nature of the term.

Where is the college Wheeling Jesuit university?

Wheeling, West Virginia If you follow interstate 70 it will take you right to the exit ramp which will take you to the University. I am a student there pursuing a brand new nursing program - An accelerated 2nd Degree Nursing program to obtain my BS in Nursing in just eighteen months. WJU is a small private university located in the suburbs of Wheeling. There is plenty of parking and it is never a hassle to find a spot. The campus is well groomed and is quiet. Class size is around a twenty person average, so the chance of your professor knowing your name (as opposed to being just a number if you were to attend a larger university) is very good. I attended Carnegie Mellon University (in Pittsburgh PA), Seattle University (in Seattle WA), Point Park College (Pittsburgh PA), Westmoreland County Community College (in Youngwood PA) and other than Carnegie Mellon where I graduated from, Wheeling Jesuit University has been the best University that I have attended. You will love it there.

What are the top academic colleges?

One of the best colleges is Harvard but for the ambitious woman i would have to say Mt. Holyoke college.If you're trying to find the right college, there are a number of considerations that are at least as important as national ranking, such as program strength in your area of interest (the top University for sociology is ranked 9th in public schools; one excellent private college that boasts 100% admission to student's first choice of law school is only ranked regionally); student life and academic atmosphere (how much pressure is there to perform well; how you fit in with the other students, both academically and socially); enrollment and student:teacher ratio; percent of classes taught by professors (as opposed to graduate students); tuition cost, financial aid, scholarships; sports programs, location, and cultural diversity. These all contribute to how happy you'll be with your choice of college, which can enhance or undermine your success.According to U.S. News & World Report, the following lists represent the top 10 colleges and universities in each of the following categories: National Universities (mostly Ivy League) Public Schools, and Liberal Arts Colleges (smaller, private schools).For more information, see U.S. News & World Report's"Best Colleges of 2009", available via the Related Links section, below:National Universities# Harvard # Princeton # Yale # MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) # Stanford # University of Pennsylvania # Columbia # Duke University # University of Chicago # Dartmouth Top Public Schools# University of California -- Berkley # University of Virginia # University of California -- Los Angeles # University of Michigan -- Ann Arbor # University of North Carolina -- Chapel Hill # College of William and Mary # University of California -- San Diego # Georgia Institute of Technology # University of Wisconsin -- Madison # University of Illinois -- Urbana-Champaign Top Private Colleges# Amherst College # Williams College # Swarthmore # Wellesley # Middlebury College # Bowdoin College # Pamona College # Carleton College # Davidson # Haverford

List the differences between associate's degree AND Doctoral Degree?

An associate's degree is an academic degree conferred by a two-year college, as opposed to a bachelor's degree from a college or university (typically 4 years of study in the United States, for example). A doctorate is one of the highest ranking degrees conferred by a university, and the number of years of study varies from three to ten (excluding previous bachelor's or master's studies). It used to be that those pursuing the title of Doctor were required to first attain their master's degree, but some programs accept students straight out of undergraduate studies.
