I have decided that I really want to do planning and will take whatever consequences that my follow out there in the job market.
Now I am just looking for planning schools I can get into (my GPA was not the best in undergrad, 3.2). It was a top 20 undergrad, but I doubt that matter much.
Two schools I am looking to apply to are Hunter College-CUNY and Boston University's MET program in City Planning.
It seems like one can get a lot of good experience from either city.
Hunter's tuition is a big sell for me. BU's flexibility is a bigger seller to me.
CUNY's program seems really technical and practical. Plus CUNY to me sounds like a UCL (University College London) in the UK. Big City, well regarded university.
Does anyone have any info. on the reputation of these schools in the planning world?
The BU program is not accredited. The CUNY program is not even ranked in the top 25.
So which one would be a better pick? I would really like to hear from grads of either school or people who know grads from either school.
