Which university is more prestigious, Georgetown or University of Washington?

Which school, Georgetown or University of Washington, do you think has more name recognition and prestige? I got into the Masters program for Computational Linguistics for both universities but I'm not sure which one I should go to. It's okay if you don't know anything about the actual departments or linguistics. Just want your overall impression of both schools. Thanks! [more inside]

After much though, last week I decided that I will definitely not be continuing my studies - and now I am struggling to motivate myself to finish the semester. How can I get motivated? Or should I just not bother (secretly want to hear this but know it's not sensible, and I should at least try to pass so as not to burn bridges) [more inside]

"Game Art" universities in Montreal?

Do you know of any schools in Montreal that offer programs in Game/3D Art? So far my results only show character-animation based schools, and I'm looking for something less specialized in the field. (The Game Art & Design program at the Art Institute is sort of my reference point.)
