"Hi Craig; Though, I know you and I don't agree "politically", which is fine....I think we can agree to disagree on that issue. However, as (2) LAs, I believe you and I are on the SAME page here. Landscape Architecture has a "very…"

"Great advise here, Joey. Since you have an MLA.....you're in a better situation to discuss that issue for "Gia".  My thinking is that....if a person does not have an undergraduate degree in "Landscape…"

"You're welcome! I actually just checked up on a former colleague who recently attained a senior landscape architecture position, six years after attaining their masters degree. I will ask around and see if any of my former classmates are…"

"Hello Gia; 20 yrs. of 3D graphic design experience is very substantial, in deed....and should open many doors of opportunity for you....even at age 41. I'm not sure that an MLA would be the way I would go.  I would think there are many TOP…"
