Default Re: Need Help!! A critical decision in my life

You're trying to decide between 2 schools.
a. Stay at SFU and finish your IAT degree, or
b. Transfer to Digipen, maybe not all your credits will transfer, maybe start over again? Or maybe some or all of them transfer, but anyway: obtain a Digipen degree.

I recommend you make a decision grid. In doing that, read these:

Also, you wrote: "Since if I want to pursuit a game industry related career, I will definitely need to attend a career training school after graduation"
Where did you ever get that idea? What makes you think that?
