Academic Rigor
When I was at Wake Tech I learn a lot in the gaming development field.
Most if not all teachers had experience in the gaming industry. Those teachers earned every bit of their paycheck and then some. I learn numerous programming techniques and got to use several programs.
Bang for the buck
All the classes I paid for was worth it. The Wake Tech I.D allowed me to ride the bus free of charge and gave me some discounts at certain places.
Tips for prospective students
Don't lose you I.D especially if you plan on using the bus.
If you have eight o' clock classes I would recommend driving or catching 6:30 Wake Tech bus because any time after that buses will be crowded.
Explore the campus and get used to walking especially if you have classes in two or more different buildings.
