"don't forget the great book - Stairway Walks" in SF, I think the author is Balalinsky or something weird like that - but Stairway gardens, and it's set up so you can do a great tour - reallly fun, some are famous.."

It is technically 10mo, july to may, though there is a new dean (who also has a maud from harvard) and there are whispers of extending it or changing the layout. My suggestion would be to visit as many as possible to get a feel. there aren't many programs that aren't attached to a MArch or MLA so you have to see how their curriculum is set up. I found urban design to be an easy transition for those coming from LA(other alums have mentioned the same thing) so you may find yourself ahead of the curve in some cases as arch's aren't used to dealing with the large scale/planners with physical design. UM does a lot of travel, is very diverse in the make up of the studio, and i found being in a part of the architecture school to be an excellent benefit coming from an LA background. The faculty either has a MUD equivalent degree or has been practicing UD. Like I said make the trips even if it puts you behind in your undergrad studio work. Since UM is relatively close I would call and ask when their having a review and see if you can't make it up during one the reviews to see what their working on. this semester. I know they went to turkey for two weeks for their fall design project so it would be interesting to get a glimpse of it.
I am excited to hear that..our registration should be up on October 15th and sorry about our website it is in the process of getting fully updated for the october 15th registration opening... Early bird registration is 175 and we recommend staying at one of the hotels we suggest to keep your costs down and they are the closet to the university on the strip. I think for a hotel you shouldn't pay no more than $80 a night here in vegas there is a lot of good deals you can even get strip hotels for $35 a night....we will suggest rooms but you can always stay where you want but our public trans is not the greatest unless you are renting a car. Also is everyone coming with you over 21?
I'm thinking about attending grad school for LA and I am looking for advice on being educated abroad? I really want to live in Europe again (Scandinavia ideally), but getting my master's there would mean not being a certified landscape architect in…Continue
Sadly my computer I bought during undergraduate landscape architecture days is being laid to rest. I've been comparing and looking at different macbook pro's and am really not tech savvy enough to know what would be best and wanted to see if anyone…Continue
