A bit of background. I got into IDG at MIT but may switch out to CDD if I go. I got into the MUP program at the GSD.
I am nearly convinced I want to work in the private realm or a pseudo-private environment - architecture firms, design firms, think Calthorpe. I am just getting into design and like the urban design certification scheme at MIT, but know I'd get the representational aspect hammered into me at the GSD, too. You are free to choose other independent variables, they may apply to me or other readers.
Also, I am really upset about no word on financial aid. From either school. And from absolutely none of the others I applied/was accepted to (Penn, Columbia, NYU, UCLA, USC, Berkeley). When do you think I'll hear back from MIT and Harvard, specifically?
Apologies ahead of time for repetition/possible spam.
