"Founded in the 1930's...the school developed a reputation as an ingrown community of Wright acolytes, and not as a serious player in architecture education....none of the fellows [who now run the school] are very well-known architects, and so the master-apprentice system continues without a master worthy of the title.Still, that graduation leads to multiple job offers, a prospect that students at most other architecture schools can only dream of."
