Recommended MLA programs without GRE

Hi guys! 

Im in the process of applying for MLA programs, are there any recommendations for good programs that don't require the GRE?

Quick look-

Boston Architectural Center

For others- it's not stated in the Council for Educators in Landscape Architecture, or any other easy access database. You'd be best served finding schools of interest and looking at their requirements. Once you have a sense of what they expect, start contacting the chair for graduate studies.

Two MLA programs that I was considering and happen to not require GREs are Cornell (GREs recommended but not required unless you're applying for a fellowship), and RISD. MIT also has several masters that overlap with what they call "landscape and urbanism" which seems to be a combination of landscape architecture and urban design, I don't think any of them lead to professional accreditation as a landscape architect, and I'm only assuming they don't require GREs because the M. Arch. program doesn't. I wasn't specifically looking for programs that don't require GREs so I'm sure there are plenty more out there.

Incorrect. Both Cornell and RISD offer accredited degrees. If there’s and question all of the programs are listed in CELA (link above).

I was referring to the MIT landscape and urbanism programs that I mentioned directly prior.

Gotcha.

Why? You're severely limiting your options because of a test?

I'm guessing because it was posted on Jan. 5 they were trying to get last minute applications in for Fall '20 and didn't have time to write the test. Though international students might have limited access to testing centres and don't qualify for fee waivers if it's cost prohibitive, and some people just don't perform well on standardized tests.

Yea, it was quite limiting, I just didn't have the time to take the test this year.

I got into UCB, Cornell, Columbia(MSAUD), OSU, AA (Landscape Urbanism). 

Token scholarship from UCB and a decent ride from OSU. Without enough money, I cant possibly go, so still figuring that one out.
