M Arch Questions


I’m applying to m arch programs for fall 2023. I’ll have a bs in architectural studies from the University of Missouri. I feel like I’m going in kinda blindly and I have a lot of questions. 

  1. What are m arch programs with high acceptance rates? 
  2. What programs will practically take anyone with a pulse?
  3. What schools are theory and research vs practice based? I know you can tell by the courses and descriptions and everything, but tried looking at them and I still couldn’t tell.
  4. How easy is it to get into a dual degree program?
  5. Ideally I’d like to get into a 2 year program, but after talking to some other people, it turns out no one graduating from my school gets into the 2 year programs, only the 3 year programs. So how do they decide if you get into the 2 year program vs the 3? Do you just submit an application and the school decides what program you’d be best for? I always thought you applied for the specific one you wanted, but now I’m not sure. I’ve looked on many different school’s websites and it’s not making it any easier for me. And I do know that some schools say you have to graduate from an accredited undergrad program in order to be admitted to the 2 year program. 
  6. How do I look into schools? Should I be visiting these schools and taking tours and meeting with faculty? Do I approach looking at schools like you do for undergrad? 
  7. I have a low gpa (under a 3.0 but above a 2.5). How hard will it be for me to get into a program? Do I have a chance? I know portfolios are looked at the most, but I have no idea how strong it will be.

Thank you!!!
