As someone contemplating urban planning once I finish my degree (BA in Geography), I'm interested in how useful / relevant have others have found their undergrad degree for preparing them for a masters program in urban planing. Has it been just non-planning specific skills like communication, GIS/data work, knowing how to study? Or did you find certain aspects of your undergrad directly related to your masters?
Secondly, do you recommend trying to find planning work before a masters, or drive right into to school/
Thanks for the free advice
