With Architecture, I was required to have an alumniAug 24 2007Architecture
With Architecture, I was required to have an alumni interview, as well as submit a portfolio. If you think you can get a portfolio together, architecture is the best program (again) in the country, so go for it. Don't talk about playing with LEGO's as a kid, talk about enjoying public spaces or something a little more original.
