Architecture and real estate

brookskindt

Hello to you all, I have a question. So, I am 20 years old and I recently made the bold decision to ditch my degree for dental ( that I was only a semester away from obtaining to go into my year and half) and go into Architecture. I enjoy the field, now AutoCAD and Revit are ...well let's just say we are going to counseling to fix our relationship. Anyways, I have also been interested in real estate. I want to get a B.S in arch and a minor in real estate what job can I do that will utilize both? Or am I wasting time?  I plan to later go for my M.arch but for now I am curious on what type of work I can do that will utilize both. I am also a first-gen so trying to look for advice has been hell. I also have one more question! I am currently in a school that only offers a B.S in construction management and Buliding design ....is that even worth it? Sorry my thread is really long and disorganized.

Real estate is typically a few classes @ a cc then an exam

Yeah I'd say that's worth it You could be design build sell

But also consider what you like most I was considering doing design build And I haven't started yet But if the commissions overlapped then I would have to sacrifice 1 or the other

Hold on,The architecture Licensing board asks for experience and education and you can put your construction on there so you might be able to if you double majored be able to be an architect straight out of college

Brook... pay no attention to Jawknee above.  He's a disillusioned fool who's never had a single cohesive thought.  

As for your question... you have a lot of ground to cover.  First, you need to understand the academic requirements and what accreditation means.  If your current school does not offer a B.Arch or an accredited M.arch, then yes, it's a waste of your time. Besides that, architecture school is much more than just debating CAD vs BIM...  It's about thinking/solving problems through design + building science.  It's not easy and you most definitively need to inform yourself on the realities of the profession before dreaming up joint real-estate and architecture futures.

You probably should have finished your other degree tho.  At least you'd have something to show for that time.  Like Jawknee above, perhaps you need real counselling instead of asking random internet wankers.

Must be because of another McKayla Maroney rejection. Of wait, she must have blocked you by now anyways.

You must love all that work you've never done and will never do and will at the end of whatever regret it so much
