My son is interested in the National High School Game Academy program through Carnegie Mellon. It appears like a very attractive program as we have no been able to find anything similar anywhere else that compares to it’s 6-week game development program.
My only concern is the website indicates it will be online again for the summer 2021 program.
Has anyone done the 2020 online CMU Pre-College NHSGA? How was your experience and was it worthwhile? In addition to working with peers on a deliverable, I really want my son to experience taste of how of college/dorm living is plus be immersed in a good intense program with like-minds. Did anyone successfully defer their admissions to the following year?
The NHSGA is growing to be very competitive ( It is the only game development in the US that spans 6 weeks). Has admissions to the NHSGA program been even more competitive and highly regarded in recent years such as— 2018, 2019 2020 (online).
