There are a lot of things about the BAC that prospective students should carefully consider. First of all, you must work in an architectural firm (or related) and start accumulating hours of credit. In addition to that, students must advance in what they call "skill levels" which have to be updated every so often. After the second and fourth year, you must submit a portfolio which includes design studio work and examples of work produced at the firm you are working with.
At those times, your skill level should be at a certain number before you can progress in your academic studies. You must also pass your portfolio review before you can go further. Although, you can still take courses towards your degree, you are not allowed to take the next design studio until you can meet the skill level minimum and pass the portfolio. This can cause delays in getting through the program and graduating. Students who fail the reviews end up attending extra semesters to meet whatever needs that the reviewer expresses.
My biggest disappointment with them is that you CANNOT GRADUATE until you've made it to skill level 8 (as of this writing). This means that even if you've met all the academic requirements but have not met the minimum hours at an architecture or design related firm or advanced to level 8, you won't graduate. You can still schedule random practice assessments after you've completed the academic program, where they evaluate your professional work to see if your level can be raised, but until you reach 8, you can't graduate.
The school does not give you a job somewhere. That is up to you to find. Even though the school's practice department offers help on resumes, how to write cover letters and other helpful advice, there is no guarantee you'll be given a job, especially if the economy is poor. Too few jobs, too many students seeking employment.
So, the question you must ask yourself is whether or not you want to spend a lot of money at this school when there is no way of knowing you'll be granted the degree you seek simply because the firms chose not to hire you. I spent the last 4 years trying to get my master's degree in architecture and finishing up my thesis next month and I'm told I can't graduate because I haven't attained skill level of 8 yet. I start paying back on loans in a few months, no degree, and no job.
By the way, the school does not tell you about these requirements until after you've paid your intent to enroll deposit and attending the orientation at the beginning of your first semester. I would strongly advise students who want to enter into architecture as a profession to seek a traditional college or university that offers the professional degrees (B.Arch, M.Arch) because they are more streamlined. Also, find out from the school you are looking into attending what the turnover rate is. How many entering students ultimately graduate from that institution? The higher the percentage, the better, which means the more satisfied the students were with their education. The BAC has a low percentage of about 20 percent. Only 1 in 5 entering students eventually graduate. The others gave up on architecture altogether or transferred to other architecture schools. Make no mistake, the BAC is risky business. So with that, I do not advise enrolling at the BAC.
