All comments were interesting and had very good points. I went to UWM (4+2 program) which was a "theory/design" based school and when I graduated I felt very unprepared as far as practice was concerned. I also had to take additional classes at a tech school to learn AutoCAD. It's funny how something that's so pertinent to your career isn't pushed during schooling. But on the other hand, looking at it from an architect's view..I would say push theory and design mixed in with technologies. I've heard that architects learn most of what they'll need in the field. Unfortunately for us theory/design alumns, most firms are looking for interns that know how to put a set of CD's together and AutoCAD knowhow and are not really interested in your school designs.
