Maureen, You’re comment made me smile. I hope no one is doing this licensure thing for exclusivity and prestige. One person’s “exclusive and prestigious” is another person’s struggling profession. I would never go through all of this for exclusivity or prestige. Are you aware that most people do not know or care what an LA is? I was kidding when I said “I love throwing money away”. What I love is DOING landscape architecture. I keep taking the test for spite. Spite. Now THERE’S a good reason!
