As I narrow down my application focus, I’ve started to become very interested in Landscape Architecture. I’ve had experience within the field—I’m a part-time GIS planning technician for my town—but I’m wondering if my academic record would line up with Landscape Architecture.
I only took one year of art courses—freshman year, I took Graphic Design (full year class). I’ve taken lots of performing arts, but that’s the only studio course I’ve taken.
My transcript is strong in the social sciences and humanities, but weaker in the mathematics courses (but I performed well in geometry, and I’m doing fine in pre-calculus).
My EC’s are full of music, but I’m also working on my Eagle Scout award. I have a few large projects (Eagle and non-Eagle) that are related to cartography and urban planning, but nothing directly relating to landscape architecture.
Would I have a shot at Landscape Architecture? I would be looking at non-portfolio required schools, including UConn, Penn State, SUNY-ESF, Rutgers, etc.
