Well I've had to officially cancel (or at least delay) my plans for VFS. I can't get a good enough cosigner for the loan I'll need. DigiPen looks like a good alternative. In fact, before I set my heart on VFS I was trying to decide between the two. I'm just really regretting even applying for VFS, because it's cost my dad $2500(student services fee) already that he won't get back.
Although I'm not excited about delaying my schooling for another year, or about having to go for 4 years instead of 1, or having to take the classes necessary for a degree like English, Soc, Math, etc. But, going to DigiPen would open up financial aid and scholarship options I wouldn't have with VFS. And a lot of the big technology companies around here hire people right out of DigiPen.
In the meantime I will keep going to Everett CC because I'm taken care of for another year and would like to get an AA degree to show for the tiem I've spent there. Who knows, maybe some of my credis will be transferrable and I won't have to spend 4 years at DigiPen... maybe more like 2 if I go during the summer. *fingers crossed*
