Major: Architecture (This Major's Salary over time)
There is no question about the quality of the education here—it's amazing. The only problem is that it's not automatically uploaded into our brains, which means that there is *a lot* of work. Sometimes we think about how much easier life would be or how much more free time we'd have if we just went to a different school—but in truth, I'm glad I'm here. The environment is enriching—I am surrounded by astonishingly brilliant people that I constantly learn from, almost as much as (if not, at times, more than) my professors.

About architecture—since it is a Bachelor of Science, not a B.Arch, you'll need to go to grad school anyway for a professional degree. There are definitely better schools for undergraduate Architecture, but I feel that here I've gotten the chance to get a really strong overall education, and then will get to focus on Architecture more when I do my Masters.
