Let’s face it; getting an architectural license is hard. There’s paperwork, bureaucracy, expenses, time–all in addition to studying and proving that you have the right stuff to be an architect.

On Tuesday, March 20th, the Emerging Professionals Group and the Young Architects Forum hosted a panel discussion on the licensure process.  This video highlights how seven recently licensed architects (and one soon to be) made it through the storm (relatively) unscathed.  These panelists answer questions regarding everything from study strategies and resources to logging IDP hours and the benefits of having a license.

The video is split into 4 parts.

Part 1:
Which test should I take first?
