I understand that the answer to the question, Which are the best urban planning schools is not an easy one, but I am looking for some kind of guidance. I am newly interested in the field, but the end of my senior year at Colby College is approaching rapidly. I have been looking into a few programs that I have heard of through word-of-mouth (i.e. UNC, Buffalo, Cornell,...) but I really don't have any good way of narrowing down the list of the rest of the schools. I don't have a particular path or specification in mind at the moment, so I'm interested in the most general programs. Is there any sort of publication that tries to sort these all out? And if not, how did you decide on the school you did? Any advice would be most appreciated.
