    Howdy from Vermont

    Hello Cyburbia-folk.

    I'm an aspiring planner currently living in Vermont. I applied to the University of Illinois at Chicago for Spring admission a few weeks ago and am anxiously awaiting their reply.

    I am most interested in transportation and sustainable development.

    Welcome from the SW region of the Champlain Valley.

    Why in the world would anyone want to voluntarily leave Burlington?
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.

    Haha. I've got to leave Burlington if I want to study planning though I wish it weren't true. Chicago is not such a bad place to be either though. Glad to hear from some fellow New Englanders on here.

    Greetings. Has it started snowing up there yet? Ninety degrees on the Florida panhandle today.
    Annoyingly insensitive

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Thanks for registering and see ya round the forums.

    Off-topic:
    So, I take it UVM still doesn't have their act together with a solid graduate program in planning? I find that really surprising and disappointing, considering the continued growth of the profession in Vermont.

    No snow (yet)

    No snow yet, but I tend to welcome it since I am a snowboarder.

    Burlington is indeed one of my favorite cities in the world, but unfortunately UVM doesn't quite have a real urban planning program yet. They do a Community Development and Applied Economics masters that isn't PAB accredited. Oh well. I figure Chicago has got to be the best location in the country to study planning anyways.
