comment How can I learn practical applications of software engineering principles?
I've been programming for 5 years before school. I applied to a job that said "Sr. .net developer". I'm not great, I just was saying that I got a job that requires slightly more experience than most people get right out of school... That was said to explain that I have the responsibility of a "Sr programmer" in my bosses view so I am trying to work with that. My boss was savvy because he knew I don't know what a sr level programmer knows so he hired me for less pay than he planned on for the position. Don't be so rude by making assumptions.

comment How can I learn practical applications of software engineering principles?
I agree. I'm "sr. programmer" in the sense that I'm senior to the other 2 programmers. Not by my definition. I'm terrible compared to the real sr programmers. That being said, there has to be a resource that gives pointers for this that I'm unaware of. I get that I'll learn better where to use architectures in practice, but surely there is a place that will list out the common architectures for common problems or common approaches. I disagree with the programmers that say this must come from experience only, if I knew of MVC in the beginning I would have used it alot sooner for web apps.
