We get free laptops from school to do 3D and programming, if the school where to get MSDN AA, would every student get win7 pro for the laptop?

Theoretically, yes. I'm not sure if every student is eligible, or if it is limited to engineering students. I'm in engineering, so I don't know if non-engineering majors can get it or not. If I had to guess, I would say all are eligible...but I do not know for sure.

Here is the Student Use Agreement. It might provide some insight. :huh:

How do I know if my course is a credited one?

There is some framed things in the hallway that says something about "Microsoft IT academy" or something like that, but I think that is something else (and they already expired)

My school is there, just says "no department", because our school hasn't a subscription for it. I suggested my IT admin on getting a subscription, but he insists that we aren't eligible, therefore I made this thread xD. I also mailed Microsoft about it and they replied that the IT admin needs to email them, which I know he wont do.

If your school has an MSDNAA account, then yes, you can get Windows 7, among other things. If your school does not have it and wants it, I can possibly help arrange for your school to get 3 free years, but it has to be administered by a member of faculty, and it has to be in one of the following departments (and in the US):
Science
Technology
Engineering
Mathematics

Awww it isn't in the US, it's in Sweden, and I don't really know which department my school/course could be counted as
