    “So what do you do in your free time?”

    Oh crap, not that question...

    So things are going great, I was flirting with tall dark handsome man from Boston when he comes up with that question. I didn't have a good answer, I never really do. I'm an architecture student people! Even though he was a mechanical engineering major and he thought he may have some kinship with the architecture profession, he still didn't really get it.

    Not only am I an architecture student, I chose to go to sciarc for undergrad, and according to many people in the discussion forums this makes me almost certifiably crazy. Why on earth would I want to sacrifice my college experience? Well my answer is this: that so called college experience is not really for everyone. And to suggest that everyone needs that in their life is an incredibly narrow view of the world. I am getting increasingly indignant and the suggestion that somehow my life experience is lacking because I decided to go to sciarc for undergrad and not some other school with other disciplines besides architecture.


    Rant over...

      How do you know you're NOT lacking? You'd have to know of/done both. Food for thought, greeneyes!

      Some people just don't understand when one has a real passion for architecture. Although I do enjoy going out from time to time, most of my friends don't understand my lifestyle, and always mock me when I say I want to sleep early on weekends. I personally can't manage working a lot for school and partig as much. I made my choice and a lot of people just don't respect this, I absolutely hate that. On the other hand I know it's going to payoff some day. And I keep doing it.

      So don't bother listening what other people have to say if they don't try -at least- to understand things from your perspective.

      BTW, what does it means to be an undergrad student at sci-arc?

      It means that your still very impressionable brain becomes completely brainwashed by the philosophy of the school. And since every attempt is made by the administration to keep sciarc from a single philosophy, I think we become entirely schizophrenic.

      I'd like to know about their graduate program, I might apply for it next year. Is there any resource out there that could help to make my choice (other that biased school pamphlets and whatnot)?

      Well I think you've already found it, archinect is where most of the pro or anti sciarc rhetoric seems to occur.

      What are you looking for in a graduate program?
