I have one more semester to graduate community college as web design major. I’m not entirely “content” with this major I mostly chose it because its was close to the arts per say and possibilities of their being better job opportunities however I’m not a big fan of coding.
I’m more into the visual/design side of things and working with my hands and drawing. In the beginning of the course I’ve had to take few graphic design classses on typography and I’m not very aspired by making posters, magazines, brochures etc.
Almost turning 21 and feel time has flew past me and didn’t pay much attention to the calender for registering to transfer schools and deadlines to do so are about 2 weeks away and I’m still undecided which is why I went to CC. I’m from the nyc area and there many great architecture schools majority of which are kind of expensive such as Pratt, Parsons,
Cooper Union. As for Cooper, If I were to apply the half tuition discount would save my parent a ton of money. But thats if Cooper is even a “reachable” school considering how competitive it is.
For CU I would like to have my Sat scores waived but in order to do so I have not taken my college math class yet in request of a waiver. Those scores I took 4 years ago in highschool are horrible! But from my research most say it’s all in the take home test. have around 3.6 GPA and going to have a self portrait published in a magazine soon and was chosen for book cover redesign contest. Does that help? Also, If I were to apply i forgot to ask for letter of recommendation from a professor if that could help my application.
I understand the job market is tough for architects and the risks and how long it takes to become one. I also want to make the right decision and not burden my mother with more debt due to an older sibling who attended private uni. I just don’t want to make a bad decision and waste time and money. I don’t really see myself majoring in graphic design or coding, I just like drawing and hands on work. Time is going by and I need to act now if I want to enter for schools fall 2018. I don’t know what to do any advice appreciated!
