+ 0 Votes What does the school say? paul.cook 7 years ago I work in IT at an Architecture college and some schools have their focus on Macs, others PCs. Ours is mainly a Windows shop based on what the faculty request have requested. If we had faculty pushing for Macs we'd expand into that arena.Call up the Interior Design Department and find out what they recommend and support. Ask what software is used and can students get it at a discount. Many schools deal directly with software vendors to get discounts for their students.Hope this helps!
