What can you compare architecture school to? I would compare architecture school to a parent’s crying infant. They both require an immense amount of time and effort, especially when both are screaming to get something done that you may or may not know the answer to. You begin to question as to what you got yourself into, but you know at the same time that you love what you’re doing.
