I applied to four grad planning programs ranging from places like SC to OR, but I'm really interested in Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for its location and program. Is anybody out there a current student? Recent grads?
Reading over the program info, their "Land-Use" track says it focuses on urban design. Is this accurate or it simply general land-use? There's a transportation "focus" available to attach onto that? Anybody have things to say about it? I'd love to take that and try to intern with Calthorpe & Associates or something like that.
Also, I live in NC right now, so I'm really trying to figure out A) if my girlfriend and I can afford to live there B) if I'll find a job anywhere around there and again, be able to afford to live there. I suppose the real question is, are wages in line with the cost of living there? What do students think of professors, especially Vincente del Rio?
I appreciate all thoughts good, bad or otherwise.
