  • Hey, sorry it took me over a month to respond..
    Yes I did get admitted for 2010 and they allowed me to defer for 1 year.  I had the same plan as you, but got cold feet about moving to a new city without any money or a job.  I am planning on saving up money while living with my parents back in Michigan until the move. 
    Hope that helps. Mess…[Read more]

  • One thing to consider about UC-Denver is that after one year of school you can establish residency and then pay in-state rates for the rest of your time at school.

    I am attending UC-Denver for my MLA I in Fall 2011, so if that’s your choice ultimately let me know, because it’s a new city for me too!

  • I completely agree with this: “allowing for a little more kookiness in the designs, a little more roughness around the edges.” I think balance and symmetry are vital to any design, but it is a framework not a maxim to be applied to every element of a place.

I don’t have any frame of reference on how the industry views degrees from various schools other than the publicized DesignIntelligence rankings

  • I’m aware of MUDs but Im not looking for that because I want to stick on a 3-year schedule pretty much. I’m thinking more along the lines of an MLA program with a concentration in something related to urban design (sort of like OSU’s community and urban landscape design concentration)

  • I haven’t looked at ASU but unfortunately, UT & Berkeley have app deadlines that are too soon (Jan 5-8th) for me to get an app in. I am considering working for a year if I can find a job in which case I would apply there for sure.

    Does anyone have any knowledge of UC-Denver in terms of quality or what kind of experiences other people had there
