    Hi guys, I've decided to apply to Bartlett for my RIBA Part 2.
    I did my Bachelors at Westminster. I did have a lot of family problems during that time (my dad died), I even though of quitting, but somehow I kept going and I actually managed to get 72% (First) for my third year, but my final degree mark was 68%. Anyway. I got back into architecture and I even started an architectural YouTube channel ("Let's Architecture"), but I'm not sure if I'm good enough for UCL. I love science and technology and hate dissertations, so UCL seems to be an ideal place for me. I'm updating my portfolio at the moment, but I've attached the current version below. I would appreciate some constructive criticism, and maybe even your examples.

    Also please tell me what is your application situation.

    You have to write an essay in the first year of the MArch and a thesis in the final year. If you got 72% in your final year you will be good enough. I just about scraped a first in my undergraduate, but got a distinction in first year of the MArch at the Bartlett.

    Hi, I accepted my offer, so I'm UCL-bound! I did my BArch at UT Austin and I've worked at KPF in New York for a few years now. I lost my mother my last year at UT - I know how hard it is. I'm sure if you touch on your experience in your essay next year it will help shed some light on your situation and your perseverance despite hardship. It sounds like you did even better that last year despite your troubles, which is impressive!
