"Hmm... although I find your view a tad (just a tad!) cynical, I do have to agree with you regarding the fact that we're not being taught real-world design solutions... although my professors are barely talking about the sustainability measures…"

"I really enjoyed this post and I totally agree with you; I think now more than ever we need to advocate for the importance of our profession. I'll give that article you mentioned a read, but do you personally have any thoughts as to how we can…"

"Before I do my own research, do you know off-hand if the Canadian SLA has a network that focuses on community-engaged design? I'm really interested in being involved in these kinds of conversations in the future, so I loved this article.…"

Jasmine Davis replied to Yushan Chen's discussion 'MLA - RISD or Cornell?'
"Hi Yushan,  This is totally unrelated to your question so I apologize! I was an environmental policy major as well but have so far not been accepted to any schools for an MLA (in Canada), so I was wondering if you would be willing to show me…"

"Yeah, the certificate program I want to take is actually offered by the Horticulture department at my university! All great suggestions, and I'm definitely going to talk to each school and ask how I can improve. Thank you so much for your…"

"Yeah, I thought that I would be an interesting candidate because my academic background is in a related field on the other side of the spectrum (environmental politics and geography), but I guess I didn't showcase that well enough.  How…"

"Classes you might look for to boost your portfolio: drawing (horticultural based one if you can find it), photography. Work experience that could be helpful outside of LA: construction, nursery work. If a LD certificate program is available, it may…"

"Right, I hadn't considered that because I didn't want to do another 4-5 years of school; I'm 27 so I'd ideally like to get started career-wise as soon as possible. I'll definitely look more into BLA programs though, and see…"

Andrew Garulay, RLA replied to Jasmine Davis's discussion 'Certificate in Landscape Design - Benefits? Drawbacks?'
"Any thoughts on going for a BLA? ... or one of the programs that has the 5 year BLA/MLA. You might want to contact one of the universities that has been offering the fast track MLA with the BLA to see if you can get it done in three years since you…"

Aaron Ackerman replied to Jasmine Davis's discussion 'Certificate in Landscape Design - Benefits? Drawbacks?'
"In my opinion, I don't think you necessarily need to demonstrate landscape relevant projects. Landscape is a generalist discipline, we must account for a broad spectrum of information. So having a different background is what makes you a unique…"

Jasmine Davis replied to Carmen's discussion 'CANADA - Masters of Landscape Architecture'
"Hi Carmen,  The program at UBC is a very sought-after, making it highly competitive, but from my impression I would say that it's probably the best program in Canada. One consideration that may or may not be important to you, the cost of…"

"Hi Carmen, Unfortunately, no! And I just found at that I didn't get accepted to UBC haha but if I don't get into any other programs, there's always next year! Good luck with your future application :)"
