USC vs Cornell for Architecture
So I got into USC and Cornell for architecture. I'm Very happy and i'm still wondering how I managed to get into these two schools. Both are very prestigious schools, but I like USC better. My father says that Cornell is better because it has the ivy league name and it is ranked first on design intelligence. I told him Cornell is in the middle of nowhere and USC is in Los Angeles, a place where I can get plenty of experience in Architecture. Also, I told him that employers don't really care about where you get your B Arch degree from; as long as you graduated and are knowledgeable in the field, then you will have a great chance of getting employed by big Architecture firms. So, with that being said, I'm confused on which college I should go to. My heart tells me to go to USC because it has been my dream school for years, but my dad says Cornell because it has the prestige and the rankings. Do architecture employers care about ivy league status? Please tell me your opinons! Thanks.3 replies
