I've always been pulled towards architecture growing up. But early on in high school I discovered urban planning. I went to a school that all my friends were going to for a year knowing it had neither. I thought that I'd eventually find something there that would interest me and was disappointed that i didn't.
After some thinking, I decided to transfer out. There was no point in going to this school if there was nothing there that interested me. Another reason was it's price tag. I can't stand the thought of getting into any kind of debt. Might even have had a panic attack once cause of stressing over the thought.
Anyway! I was thinking about being an architect but after touring other school's programs I realized that it might not be all that I wanted. I was going to use an Arch degree to get into an Urban Planning grad school, most likely U of Memphis. Which is still what I want to do. I'm considering Urban Studies, Geography, Sociology, and perhaps a Political Science.
I want to stay instate(TN) and my top choices are ETSU, MTSU, UTC. I'd consider UTK and maybe Memphis, but I want to get away from home for awhile. Also, I am technically accepted to Andrews University in southwest Michigan and can still spend 4-5+ years there (as well as loads of money) in their Architecture program.
So I'm curious to know what your undergrad degree was and If you found it helpful in getting your MURP. That is, if you are an urban planner.
Any advice is welcome!!
