Im ophir, first year urban planning student at the Technion (Israel institute of technology, which is...ahhh...in israel )
I was just wondering, since Im not so happy with my school over here,if any of you is satisfied with the planning programm you are attending, and where that might be.
Since I have very limited options here (The technion program is the only one in israel) and i recently got admitted to the mup at Mcgill and Boston university, I was wondering whether transferring might be a good idea.
I find the planning profession exciting, so switching to something else is not an option for me, but the course is hard and is not presented to us students in a very coherent and professional way (just for example, i still dont know how to plan anything actually...every idea or concept i come up with i have to look up in the library or the net to see if it was tried anywhere and how etc...the professors dont really teach us any concepts or guide us through the process).
Have you guys over there at the states or canada any different experience? Has the school you went to or are going to really taught you how to plan? Any recommended schools?
Thanks a lot..help is appreciated and will be paid back by a free hebrew lesson
