An example would be having to do QA and/or level design in order to be hired as a game designer later on. A BA degree plus the QA/lvl design time (1 year?) makes the requirements quite daunting to consider and possibly dissuading new talent from entering the field. You can probably answer that but it is the only question I can manifest. But I digress, i'd love to read about your experience there and the topics discussed.
I agree. I've been scared for a while that the CS degree that I will obtain in 4 1/2 years will not be worth the same to the industry 4 1/2 years from now.

I look forward to your coverage.
