This has nothing to do with Headphones but I just like to shout out to the world - I am going to be an Architect!!! (I hope I haven't jings it)

After 2 months of waiting, filling in forms and interviews, I finally got into Post Graduate Dipolma of Architecture. Now only 2 more years of studying to do................ (already done 3 years for my Degree in Architecture in University "college as you guys call it in the states")

Thanks joe, but i'll be so much in debt by the end of it, it'll be ridiculous.

But it should be fun and lots of hard work too!

Damn raymondlin, congrats. Looks like once you become an architect, you will be able to afford pretty much any piece of headphone gear you want. I hear architects gets a small percentage of the total cost of a project for their fees. It's usually a hefty chunk of change given that projects can be pretty expensive.

Thanks everyone.

Wing, we normally can get between 8 - 12% of the total cost of the project value (Thats on top of everything). But the bigger the project, the smaller the percentage.

Duncan - sorry to spill your beans, but I get a GRANT!

I started uni just before Tony Blair abolished the Grant system, so I still get one. I get one every year all the way through my studies but it doesn't mean I don't get into debt. Especially having this very expensive hobby & my HiFi and all!

And I already have BA(Hons) after my name, but by the time I finished, I should be Raymond Lin BA(Hons) Dipl RIBA
