If the architecture programme reduced you to your knees - then there were two possible outcomes;
1| You would take this as a challenge and move forward
2| You'd move onto something more erm comprehensible
As a word of caution, design is very subjective. 10 people might like it while a 1000 more will diss it while the same could apply inversely. You'd need to defend your self in the event of the latter and you'll need to keep yourself in check in the former - I've seen people spiral out of control dealing with their ego's out of praise
Whatever you do mate, keep moving forward!
and if you'd need any help let the Brotherhood know since you now have 80~ bro's and sisters to share your course of action
That would have been really great to collaborate on projects! I really thought architecture was the career for me but I guess I just don't have the creativeness or abstract thinking that is required to really excel in this major. Plus, you have to "certify" into the program and it is based ONLY on grades, and the cut off is a 3.5 GPA. THREE POINT FIVE GPA. That's ridiculous... safe to say I would have to get above a 4.0 this semester to be able to certify into the program which isn't going to happen. Oh well.

I don't design electronics, but I mainly do coding and architecture... the software kind.
For me Architecture was not so confusing and I really liked the theory for the most part. (even though I still do not know why we had to watch Battleship Potemkin) It's those drawing classes that were bothersome. Not so much that I didn't have design ideas, but the workload was heavy. We didn't use CAD freshmen year so we did all technical drawings with a pencil and pen and making one mistake makes you want to curse at the top of your lungs. I'm not super old- CAD was very much available in my high school but seeing my college class not use it felt like a step backwards. Good luck to you in getting back on track with school!
Yah, I took the drawing class last semester, not too bad because I can draw well enough. I wish we would have jumped right into CAD freshman year because then I could have REALLY excelled but nope, they feel drawing is more important than CAD which in a way makes sense, but 99% of it is on computers now they tell us. Plus, it isn't CAD anymore, it's BIM. I tried out the program we were going to use, it's called Revit by Autodesk and it is amazing, hands down one of the easiest programs I have had the pleasure of using, almost as easy as Chief Architect, another personal favorite BIM program. Revit has huge solidworks integration and I love it. Will still dabble with it in my free time along with Cinema 4D, Adobe Creative Suite, and other 3D design programs.

So I'm watching now....just to see how.
I know I'm late....but it's going to be great.
It will slow down with school....but that is still cool.
Rub a dub dub...you know that I'm subbed.
I'll stop now. But only for now.....
That has to be the most creative sub I have ever received. I sure hope I can please! Lots of ideas floating around my brain.

Be prepared to work your tail off if you want to be done in 2 years...just saying.
This is great news to hear! Unfortunately, some of the classes I took this year and during Running Start don't count towards my major sooooooooo I am looking at three years to finish so on track with everyone else, which sucks
oh well, more time to enjoy the campus and everything it has to offer!
