Seriously, I cant stress this anymore than this, go visit architecture departments...figure out which colleges that are close to use and visit them. Use naab.org to get an understanding of what is offered. And the most important thing is to have an open mind when it comes to learning architecture. You wouldnt go to Med School and tell the teacher you know how to medically treat patients, and you wouldnt go to an architecture school and tell your teacher you know how to design architecture. Being a fan of styles and knowing how to practice it are two different things.
