    Grad School advice

    Hello. I'm new to this site. I have a B.A. in Environmental Studies and I'm starting to look into grad school for urban/city and regional planning/design - I'm interested in both policy and design. So far, Pratt, UCLA, Columbia, and Washington are my top choices. I'm interested in sustainable communities and transportation. Any one want to give me advice on these schools or what the trends are in the field? Anyone currently at these schools want to comment?

    I'm also interested in UCL - in the UK - for Town and Country Planning for sustainability. Is it problematic getting accredited and employed in the US if I do go there? Sorry, this is alot, but you know how it is...
    Thanks.

    There is a wealth of info in previous posts in the Student Lounge on the forum. If you search through them you will find a lot of what you are looking for. Application Blues is a great thread full of info. Decisions....Decisions is also another that has a lot of info on school visits etc.
