I am on the last leg of my decision process for graduate level architecture studies, and am currently deciding between
University of Pennsylvania (PennDesign) - 3 year
University of Michigan (Taubman) - 2 year
Both schools have offered money (the costs are about equal after consideration) so financially there is little difference.
Any words of wisdom/viewpoints that could aid in the final decision would be greatly appreciated
What are you interested in / what do you want to do?
neither. Umich grad here. applicants to umich romanticize the school because of all its useless technology that wont help you get a job or do anything in life. the school has ONE PERSON in its career department and its a joke. U ll be eighty thousand in debt and start out if your lucky at 37k with no med or dental. Really consider that this is what you want to do. make a fake resume with umich mArch on it and send it out, see how many replies you ll get. If you want to "build buildings" get a 60 hour builders license, start your own company and go ham.
or be a douche and change your name to dave Z.
Flip a coin?
I was trying to avoid getting at my interests, and was hoping to receive a broad overview of each school; my interests are a multitude of interweaving site integration, spatial overlap, place creation, light in architecture, and sustainability (through an interweaving of modern technology and older, simple techniques).
Thank you Dave, as I said I have received assistance with aid from both schools, and understand that cost is also a factor, I was hoping for an opinion on the schools' academic quality and techniques however, the cost of each has already been taken into consideration.
