D got admitted for the B.Arch program to Illinois Institute of Technology/RPI/Pratt Institute/Syracuse/University of Miami/Sci-Arc/Auburn and Iowa State.
Can anyone elaborate on the pros and cons for each of these programs. Specifically we are looking for:
2.Career center/internships after graduation.
3.Tie up with any architectural firms for summer projects/internships.
4.Study abroad semesters.
5.Any help offered after graduation with the ARE (Architect registration Examination).
We researched the DI rankings for the above schools too. Looks like Syracuse is at the top followed by Sci-Arc/Pratt(in a tie) then Auburn and then IIT-RPI ( in a tie). At the end of the list is Iowa State.
We are OOS for any of these schools. Auburn and Iowa State seem to be in the same price range whereas other 6 have a similar scholarship and price structure. Our only concern with Auburn and Iowa State is they have a pre-arch course after which you have to compete for a spot in the architecture program which essentially means going thru the admission process again.
Any opinions are greatly appreciated.
She also got admitted to Cal Poly SLO which was our first choice but she got for Landscape Architecture. Changing majors at SLO isn't easy though not impossible. Has any been successful in changing the major at SLO from LA to Arch.
