About this livestream


If you're interested in arts, engineering, and aesthetics, architecture might be the major for you. Maybe you're exploring the subject for the first time, or perhaps you're already an expert and designing and prototyping various structures.

Regardless, Elias Miller is here to help you dive deeper into the architecture major and learn all about how to choose a school that will support your endeavors. We'll cover high school preparation, what to expect in college, as well as the various forms your future career can take.

Don't miss this opportunity to get an insider look at the architecture field. And come with questions - here at CollegeVine, our goal is to demystify higher education to better help you determine - and achieve - your goals.

Your host

Undergrad College: Harvard University '17

Major: Music

Graduate College: University of Michigan, M.M.

Work Experience: Now in my fourth year at CollegeVine, I have helped dozens of students gain acceptance to their top-choice schools and have also advised and mentored thousands more through my livestreams. Apart from my work at CV, I am also a professional conductor and a multi-instrumentalist. I currently serve as the music director of the Apollo Ensemble of Boston, and I have led symphonic concerts and operatic productions throughout the United States.

My Admissions Story: Initially interested in pursuing a career as a performing cellist, I applied almost exclusively to music schools with dual and double degree options and ultimately enrolled in the Tufts University/New England Conservatory Dual Degree Program. Unhappy with the combined program and worried I'd never feel like I was fully a student at either school, I logged back into in October of my freshman year. I can't say I went about the transfer process in the smartest way (I only applied to two schools!), but Harvard miraculously accepted me (or 'excepted me' as I wrote in a celebratory Facebook post that day - no one ever let me live that one down), and the rest was history.
