Navigation tips for M-Arch grad admission, non design background


Topic starter

Hello all!
I am a 33 year old NC dreamer with a non design background applying for a Masters in Architecture. I have a B.A. in history; post grad, my professional experience includes small business owner and corporate director of retail in hospitality. Professionally and personally I have experience in interior design, visual merchandising, and art; however, I have no formal design training. Currently, I am enrolled in a beginner's illustrator course, woodworking, and physics.

SO, what course or resource would you best recommend for fundamentals prior to entry. Spring/Summer 2022 is my target entry and I want to optimize my time in preparation.

Also, how can I connect with current M-Arch students, I would love to chat with someone with a similar background as I. 

I'm diving in, send me all and any flotation device.
Thank you,
