hello there,let me just first tell you how much i love ur account!! you make me wanna get into the field everyday a little more ! i'm a senior civil Engineering student and now is considering architecture for my hopefully masters degree. the two fields are so different and i don't know if it;ll be a good idea to jump directly into architecture though i really want to :/ i kinda don't know what to expect. do you have any recommendations ? how do i know its the right thing for me?

Thanks! I hope you understand that its impossible for me to tell you which is the right thing to do. I don’t think the two fields are that different and if anything they are collaborators towards a common goal. If you can have both degrees (B.Engineering + M.Architecture) you can probably get licensed on both disciplines which will make you a double threat! If you choose to pursue only one of the careers you will have an invaluable insight into the other one. Anyway it seems to be a win-win situation.
