Question Westwood College

I recently wrote a post about me attending Globe Institute of Technology. Looking at the curriculum they had to offer for game development changed my mind about going there. I'm thinking about applying to WestWood College Online. My career goal is to become a game programmer and the classes they have to offer seem awesome. Doing research on the school, I've found both good and bad things about the school. I'm honestly confused on what to do. It is a featured school on this site but hearing some of the CONS about the school really has me worried. What do you guys think about the school....Is it the way to go?

If you want to be a game programmer, you might be better off with a traditional Computer Science degree. You'll probably end up spending a lot less money and getting a much better education. You don't need a specialized "game" degree to get a job in the game industry.
