Ok, I know this thread has been posted previously on the forum but I wanted to get people's opinions on the University of Washington's Planning program. I got accepted into their Master's program with the Urban Design Certificate emphasis. Has anyone here been through the Urban Design Certificate program at UW? How well does the program prepare students without a design background (such as myself) to go into an urban design profession? What's it like to study in Seattle? (I'm a Southern California native-got my undergrad planning degree at USC)
