University of Oregon / safety architecture schools
I'm looking to go into a B.Arch program and my list so far includes VT, IIT, and UO. I have a 1350 SAT (might be retaking) and a 3.6 unweighted gpa with 6 APs so far (more to come senior year) and decent extracurriculars with leadership and drafting experience. I'm working on a portfolio. UO's site says that their preferred gpa is 3.25 and preferred SAT is 1190, and the example portfolios don't look all too hard to match, but I see good things about their program so I don't know how easy it really is to get in. Is UO a good safety for me? Or should I find some more? What are some easier colleges to get into with a B.Arch program? (I'm from Washington and both UW and WSU offer M.Arch only. I'd be willing to do that as a safety, but if it's more competitive than UO I'm not so sure. I'd love to hear feedback about those, too.)7 replies
