omg, so i went today, 3rd time this month, to DeVry. this time I talked with the dean of the field of study i'm looking to jump into. This guy is fucking amazing because he's got a shit ton of knowledge with him. I stayed there for nearly 2 hours talking with him about the school, the game industry, and many other things that came up no matter how strangely related it seemed. this guy gave me a warm fuzzy feeling in my stomach just hearing his stories and what the field of study is planning on doing if I join.
after talking with him we went to a class that was half an hour before starting and looked at some of the higher end programming that i'd be learning. Half an hour later I was hooked. I have a real good feeling about this, even though I don't have a real good grasp on my money situation. still, it looks like I may choose to hit up DeVry this fall for the rest of my college learning and i'll be learning from industry veterans in the game programming and simulation fields.
All I have to do now is go back there on monday and talk with the person i was talking with before and I should be fully set up for the fall semister at DeVry.
