After reading quite a few of the posts over the last week I have finally decided to join. I stumbled across this site after looking for Virtual Cheektowaga which is of sadly no more. I looked through here and saw that my hometown seemed to be mentioned quite a bit, especially by Dan. Looking through the galleries I even saw a picture of my own street.
I am from Buffalo, NY (actually Williamsville, a village in Amherst) and am currently a second year student at SUNY Binghamton. I am majoring in history but have aspirations of getting my masters in urban planning. I should be able to graduate by next year so thus I need to start looking at graduate schools. I may end up going to Uuniversity of Buffalo, although I would ideally like to live in another part of the country for a while and expierence a region other than upstate New York. I have not formally started looking but I am interested in schools in the state of Oregon.
Looking through the job listings I noticed that they all seem to require some sort of expierence. What I would like to know is if it hard to find a position in the planning field.
Thats all for now.
