I am an undergraduate student of architecture in Detroit. Needless to say, my prospects are dismal.
I also believe that I'd be happier in the fields of urban planning and urban design rather than in architecture, so I plan on going for a MUP as soon as I get my BSArch.
I'm currently scoping out urban planning grad programs to apply to. I'd like the program to be a part of the uni's college of architecture as well as be in a large city, since the networking connections I make in school will probably be what leads to my first job. I chose to stay in Detroit for my undergrad which was the worst decision I've ever made in my life. However, I'm excited to start a new life in a new city.... I'm currently looking into Chicago, Austin, and the west coast as well. I am very open to suggestions.
So that is where I'm coming from. Its great to see such a lively, helpful, and centralized community for urban planners here. I'm glad to be a part of it.
