Architect

Odds of Getting In

If you go through the appropriate channels–study hard, get your degree, and pass the license exam–you’ll be able to find work. The number of jobs for architects is growing, mainly becaue all of the old, crappy buildings are falling down from shoddy craftsmanship and need to be rebuilt. That, or the population is growing (in number and, probably, girth–been to Walmart lately?), so there are more people who need places to live and work, places with sturdy floors.
