I was recently accepted into the Master in Urban and Environmental Planning at Arizona State University. However, I have the undergraduate urban planning degree from that same school and have found it to be good for certain areas but completely worthless in others (redundant classes, not so good teachers, etc.). The school is going to be combined with geography into a new program and the current MUEP and urban planning undergraduate program will be changed. It sounds like a positive move and they're heading in the right direction with emphasis on different areas and, as far as the MUEP goes, offering more flexibility for students.
Due to me having an undergraduate degree in urban planning (and another in geography), would it be wise to choose a different graduate program? My main thought process behind this is that the two programs, from what I've heard from people who have done the undergrad and grad programs, are closely related (I know that's obvious...).
I was contemplating going for a juris doctorate here at ASU instead (focusing on environmental and land use law), but have read and heard terrible things about law schools in general and the legal profession.
What do you think would be the better option? The planning graduate program even though I have an urban planning undergrad? Law school (I know the degree of difficulty, time, tuition, etc.)? Perhaps a different option at another school? Nothing?
Thank you very much for your time and all responses. I can provide more information on the programs or myself if needed.
