    From a B.Des in Toronto to a M.Arch in Chicago.

    I left the blog behind quite a while ago now, and to be completely honest, the lack of motivation os what made me ignore this blog.A lot of things have happened since graduation. I got accepted into 3 out of 5 school I applied for the M.Arch and decided for Illinois Tech. I was granted my B.Des. with distinction and even got a big chunk of money for going to IIT. In other words, it all turned out to work pretty well and the main concern I had about grad school (money) is now gone.

    I was hired full-time a couple of months ago by one of my OCAD teachers to work in his young and small firm for the summer, which means some more experience. I am learning a lot in here and having a lot of fun.

    I'll be leaving toronto in about three weeks from now. If anyone from Chi-town is reading this, I'd love to a chat as there a few things I'd like to know about/ask about the city.

    All the best for the rest of the summer. Hopefully I'll be able to post some stuff from IIT. (Alan and Tim, you know who you are and you know what you've got to do now.)

      Welcome Arnaud,

      Just thought I'd point out that I am an IIT alumn in Chicago.

      Good Luck.

      Hello Arnaud.

      I am a Chicagoan, and will be starting the 3-year program at IIT next year...with you?! If you have any questions, let me know - I'll answer as many as I can.

      PS- Chicago is an amazing city. I think you'll have a great time here. There is so much to do, if they ever let us out of the studio (hehe)!
