From what I've heard the architecture program at CMU is amazing.. but intense.. They spend a lot of time in the studio, so if you're not ready to make the commitment, i'd say Cornell (which I'm sure is no walk in teh park).. CMU has an amazing program though.. and graduating with no debt is pretty hard to turn down..

CMU's architechture program is top notch. It is true that it is intense. I can't tell you how amazing it is that your son has a full ride there. If he is willing to work hard the benefits 5 years from now will be worth it. My son is a first year acting student at CMU and he LOVES it! He says that when you love what you do it does not feel like work. So if your son is passionate about architecture I would think CMU would be the place to go.

Almost ALL architecture students spend their life in the studio. On the tours of nearly every college we visited with an architecture degree, the guide usually had some reference to the lights always being on in architecture studios. CMU and Cornell are most likely no exception, nor that different from each other in this regard.

This article on the new Cornell dean, formerly head of Harvard's M.Arch program, might be helpful:

Wow, thanks for the link Rogerevans - that is very impressive - my son arrives from Cornell today from a weken visit and he's in love.
Next week he'll go up to CMU???? And back home again for a few days to hash it over and decide!!!

Carnegie Mellon is a well-rounded, professional program, while Cornell is more theoretical. Also the attitude at Cornell is reportedly cutt-throat competitive, which is not the case at Carnegie.

Cornell has the 2nd best undergrad architecture program. Harvard has the best. University of Cincinnati has the 3rd best. syracuse, risd, are 4th. carnegie is 13th. these were rankings based on architecture/design firms.

Contrary to Nycityman's post, Harvard doesn't have an undergrad architecture program. Their first professional degree program is the M.Arch.I, offered through the Graduate School of Design (Now called the Harvard Design School). If Cornell and CMU were costing you the same, it'd be a toss-up. Both are great schools of architecture. Beyond the major: Cornell is prettier, but there's way more to do in Pittsburgh. Ithaca has worse winters. Given the scholarship, I hope you and your son came to your senses and realized that CMU's the right choice.
