What school of architecture did you attend? I am curious too!
I tend to agree with Ralph about your 3yr degree and portfolio requirements, but you need to give serious attention to the possibility of going on to graduate school. Historically, the architect has completed the required formal education with a bachelors degree, but this has changed. The qualified student is encouraged to consider very seriously courses to earn a masters's degree in architecture, urban design, structures etc. Another possibility might be earning a second bachelors degree in a field related to architecture and construction.
The architects field of interest is broadening to include every activity that affects our physical environment. This broadening interest requires leadership from those trained in multiple disciplines. If you have the basic qualifications for this leadership, it would be wise for you to train for this role by earning a graduate degree, while you are still young and learning. Don't give up on your dreams, absorb more, keep on learing, and good luck in your future career as an architect.
