#46 Never underestimate the power of design.
Will I become an architect after I graduate?  Is this really what you want to do?  Am I ready for the commitment, the all-nighters, and the sacrifices I will have to make to become an architect?  Will this all be worth it?
Who knows?
But one thing that is undeniable is that the power of design is getting more noticed and more substantial every day.  Architecture school teaches you more than just how to design space and how to make drawings and models, it teaches you how to think like a designer.  It teaches you how to look deeply into things and create something from absolutely nothing. You learn how look at the world in a different way, and being able to see the world through the eyes of a designer is such a powerful tool in life.  You get to expand your imagination and the experiences and things you will learn through school will open up so many avenues for you later in life.  
Yes, the end goal of architecture school is to become an architect, but there is so much more to it.  A keen sense of design, especially in a world driven by an aesthetic platform such as the internet, will allow you to pursue more than just architecture.  
It is almost as if we become doctors of the visual realm to make the world a beautiful place to live.
Its pretty cool.  :)
“Life of a designer is a life of fight, fight against the ugliness, just like a doctor fights against disease. For us, the visual disease is what we have around, and what we try to do is to cure it somehow with design.”   - Massimo Vignelli
