Thread: Harvard - GSD career discovery program

    Harvard - GSD career discovery program

    Has anyone experienced Harvard's Career Discovery program for urban planning or urban design? If yes, how was it and how different were the programs? Was it worth it? How was the application process? Any suggestions? I have no planning experience and hope to partake in the program to look more competitive for graduate admissions.

    I did it this past summer. It's expensive, but I thought it was definitely worth it. The application process is easy and the acceptance rate is high. Not sure if it'll make you more competitive for grad school, but it'll certainly give you an opportunity to decide if that's what you want to do.

    There are some other people on cyburbia who also did the program and can chime in with their perspectives. There are also a couple of earlier threads about it.

    OK great. Thanks for the input. I am new. How do I access old threads?

    You can either search for them using the link above that says "Search" or page through the Student Lounge until you see something that looks relevant.
