Arch School Questions


I am currently an English teacher working in Taiwan. I want to follow an architecture degree when I return to the States, January 2003. What should I be doing to prepare in the meantime? What will schools be looking for in a portfolio for undergrad? Also, does anyone know where a list of architecture schools can be obtained? And, since I already have a BA in English/French, do you know if there is anyway to cut out some of the core classes of the undergrad program? Last, considering the competition for good jobs in the field of architecture, are there any other jobs available to one with an architecture degree? Do any of you regret going into architecture and if so, why?
