Can the speakers talk about learning method during the pandemic? Are you all doing distance learning? If yes, how are students doing with such a hands-on discipline like architecture? Thanks.
Anne Ettley
Thanks for the question! Keep them coming!

ELAC is fully online, with some courses face to face, in surveying the students borrow the equipment and they learn by doing via zoom while modeling the instructor

Since USC is a private university and tuition is expensive, how likely are students getting scholarships after they are admitted? Are they merit based or need based?

Colleagues and ACE students! Thank you for the opportunity to share our different opportunities. I will need to excuse myself at 5:10 for another appointment. If wanted to share two things: if you have further questions about Cal Poly, you can contact me via email mcabrinh@calpoly.edu. AND, I forgot to share our Architecture Summer Career workshop which I run in the summer. We will be online again this summer, last year was amazing online!. If you are interested, please sign up on our email interest list here: https://architecture.calpoly.edu/about/summer-career

thank you Mark,

Thank you!

Sirajum: great question! Cal Poly admissions greatly recognizes that not all students have AP course opportunities, and in fact community college course count as AP courses for Cal Poly admissions AND, if you take one semester of math in a community college it will count as a full year. Many of our students applying will have 5+ years of math, and that is one way of doing it.
Humberto Gallegos, ELAC
If you have taken courses at a CC as a K-12 student, you are eligible for advisement from these schools, they can provide you with information with an ED. PLAN, basically a road map, you can take advantage, just have your school ID ready to provide the counselor with

Thank you! Mark

Why does it take so long to get your architecture license?
Humberto Gallegos, ELAC
took me x3 tries to get my PE, Kent was able to get his SE during his first try......
Kevin McNulty
Have to jump to another meeting. Amazing presentations, thank you all!
Humberto Gallegos, ELAC
I'll let Mr. Hamner know, thanks Justin,
Mark Cabrinha
@ Piper: please don’t let that discourage you. It just happens that as people get engaged in practices, they ironically don’t necessarily prioritize to take the eam. All accredited schools are equal in the requirements for licensure. It is up to graduates as well as their internship experience categories to take the ARE (exam). I have a student that graduated two years ago and just passed the exam! So you can do it if you want to, don’t let that discourage you, its just a matter of priorities, not a question of difficulty.
Piper Guthrie
Oh ok thanks
Mary Cliff
It sounds like Math classes (esp. Calculus) are important for admission. One school mentioned Physics and Chemistry. What are the important subjects high school students should definitely take in order to get in architecture school?
Aaron Gensler
Also, you can still practice architectural design without an architecture license - if you want to talk more about it feel free to reach out aaron.gensler@woodbury.edu
Piper Guthrie
