With all due respect, I appreciate the comment you wrote below my blog comment about Senior LA's who charge for L.A.R.E. And, as I know you will understand, I don't quite agree with you on this matter.
While it's true that I didn't take the U.N.E. exam via computer nor did I learn the many computer drawing software programs....I STILL had a very successful 35+ LA design career....and I produced every project "by hand". Too many University LA grads these days, have very poor hand drawing, sketching & graphic skills.
You might be interested to know....that the young LA graduate that I mentored for (3) full years (and continue to give him advise from time to time), was a 2007 graduate of The University Of Kentucky.
Personally, I don't feel that LA University Professors are doing enough to prepare LA graduates for the "real world". I don't really think I was ready when I graduated....but, I worked for (2) different LA firms for 14 yrs. (that included 2 yrs. worth of over-time), in order to learn everything I could before establishing my own successful LA Private Practice.
I believe that Head of every University LA Program should have a couple of very experienced Principal Level LA's visit and spend an afternoon with graduating Senior LA's...have an extensive Q&A session to ensure graduates are better informed on what is expected of them when they begin their LA careers.
Now, I enjoy helping younger LA's as I believe ALL LA's (regardless of their experience level) need a "Mentor".
Thanks for the add Ms. Landregan. I think you may have been after me in the interviews for an L.A. County parks position in March of 2008. You look familiar. Either that or I may have seen your name when I looked into the LARE review course some years ago.

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
