hmm... Dallas really limits the amount of people applying to the program, i would be really up for it... if i wasnt going to SCAD next year and if i didnt live in Washington D.C........

Replace that with 'If I didn't live several thousand miles away and had bothered to get good at one single thing instead of dabbling with everything'.

Oh oooooooh, hehe smart!

Cogs, gearbox, now I get it, wow took me a while <- I think that makes me not qualified :D

I'd apply if I was living bit less in finland and tad more to dallas or somewhere near.

Nice program tho, hope more game devs start to notice how hard it is to land a job in games industry (esp. people who DON'T live in usa).
