Hi, I'm a new user here. Forgive me for starting a thread right away just about myself. I was wondering if you all could weigh in on my decision I have to make soon (and hopefully start some good conversation on some schools that others are thinking about.
Right now I have narrowed my choices for masters planning programs down to Cal Poly and UC-Denver and am completely stuck on what to do. I enjoyed touring both campuses and have talked and exchanged emails with professors from both schools, who all seem very nice. I like Cal Poly's hands on approach and favor their program a little more than Denver's.
I noticed on the Planetizen Guide that the median salary for Cal Poly graduates was around $62K which seems remarkably high. Is there a chance this figure may be false? The California budget crises worries me with finding a job and would actually rather live in Colorado than California (unless its the Bay area) after I graduate.
Basically, I am just wondering if there are any students who have committed to either schools and would like to share why they chose them. Thanks!
