Default game development ms degree

I have graduated from computer science and currently I'm trying to find myself a school which offers ms degree in game development but there aren't many schools that is focused on programming part of the games other than art. I've found two schools so far which are DePaul(http://gamedev.depaul.edu/) and Rochester IoT(http://games.rit.edu/graduate). So I would like to know if you have any other school suggestions that offers ms degree in game development and focuses on mostly programming. And my second question is should I apply to all of the schools that I find or apply to only one of them. I mean if I apply more than one and say two of them accepted me and obviously I can only go one of them. So am I seizing someone else's position or do they have something to prevent this?

Apply to the ones you are interested in. Go to open days and look around the campus. Talk to past students. Ask questions about the quality of the course and employment rate after graduation. You are not 'stealing' someone else's slot when you apply.

First of all thanks for reply and clearing one of my problems. Also I am not living in US so it is impossible for me to visit schools. And lastly I'm still open to suggestions for schools that focuses on game programming and I really appreciate any opinions about the schools that I found. As I said it is impossible for me to see them at first hand so maybe people who have been one of those schools can share their opinion.

I'm presently doing MS in game development in DePaul University. They have a great program. You'll get a wonderful game programming experience by practically doing things. Btw, I'm also an international student.

If you don't mind me asking, how are you financing your master's at DePaul? I currently have a bachelor's degree. It looks like a great program, but I can't afford the 35,000 they want per year on top of the debt I have from my Undergraduate degree.
