Thread: Undergraduate anyone?

  1. #1

    Undergraduate anyone?

    I am a High School senior in PA. I am looking for a solid urban/community/regional planning program in the Philadelphia PAa region. Urban Studies or some other related field would be fine but I want to be able to get into a good graduate school. I have an 1850 combined SAT score and a 3.8 GPA on a 4.0 scale so my academica are decent. Any suggestions?

    UC Berkeley has an Urban Studies major. It just sucks that they're about to crush dreams and rip everyone a new one with the proposed tuition increase...

    edit: oops just reread you specified PA region, my bad

    If you are willing to go a few hours away, the Bachelor of Science in Urban and Regional Studies at Cornell University is an awesome program.

    Like PlanningCanada said... if your willing to go a few hours away, the University of Cincinnati has a great Urban Planning degree, it is in the art college so it is more design based but they also have a Urban Studies program that has no design studios at all and just focuses on policies, economics and the such of planning. Its a great school with great professors

    Rutgers has an amazing undergraduate planning program. The Rutgers graduate planning program is rated number 3 by Planetizen and if you are looking to stay in the PA area Rutgers might be a good option.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Yes? That's where I got my masters... What do you want to know?
