Well, considering that the AIA (insipid, pathetic little club that
it is) has nothing to do with accreditation, I'd say your friend
was a little misled. WU does have a good reputation, though I've
never been there (plan to go this summer for a conference).

Accreditation *is* given by:
NAAB - architecture
ACCE - building science
APA - planning

A rather fun article about the AIA is in last month's
_Progressive Architecture_. It's just a club, kids.
