JUST MIGHT SAVE MY LIFE

FULL SAIL UNIVERSITY IS VERY NON TRADITIONAL. THAT EXPLAINS ME, TOO! NEVER FITTING INTO THE 'REGULAR' COLLEGE ROUTINE, AT 30 I EVENTUALLY FINISHED MY AA ONLINE. ONE DAY, SITTING ON A TRACTOR, AFTER THE CLOSE OF A COMMUNITY THEATER PLAY I DIRECTED, I SUDDENLY JUST KNEW I HAD TO FIND A UNIVERSITY THAT FIT ME AND WOULD LET ME DO WHAT I LOVED, NOT HATED. I WANTED TO GET UP IN THE MORNING AND SMILE.......READY TO GO, GO, GO. I FOUND FULL SAIL UNIVERSITY IN WINTER PARK, FLORIDA. I HAVE HAD A CAMPUS VISIT, LOOKED FOR HOUSING, TALKED WITH MANY DEPARTMENTS AND PROFESSORS. I'M READY TO GO, GO, GO! I CAN HARDLY WAIT! THE SCHOOL IS INTENSE, WHICH IS AWESOME, BUT A BIT COST PROHIBITIVE! I WILL SIT ON A TRACTOR UNTIL AFTER HARVEST, BUT BACK AT WORK I FEEL LIKE I HAVE ALREADY RESIGNED AND MY MIND IS ON FULL SAIL. IT'S THE MOST EXCITED I'VE FELT IN 10 YEARS. I BELIEVE I HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS - WELL, ALL EXCEPT THE CASH! I WILL FIND THE WAY NO MATTER WHAT, BUT IT WOULD BE OUTSTANDING TO EARN A SCHOLARSHIP TO HELP! THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

My Dream School

Honestly, out of all the schools I have ever visited, Full Sail was the only place that I ever felt comfortable. It's absolutely incredible. All the faculty, even admissions, receptionists, and financial aid were all kind. They weren't cold or indifferent. They actually treat you like you're a person. They don't have housing on the campus, but they are willing to walk you through every single step of finding housing in apartments that they have contracts with. The entire school is focused on creating real-life scenarios to help students adjust to the kind of life that they'll be living once they go into their respective careers. It's also beautiful. They have concerts and game rooms and drawing tablets. They have immersion rooms to replicate scenarios like flying a plane. It includes the runway with wall screens, smells, sounds, and wind to complete the entire scene. The school also has virtual reality testing with head gear games and machines that allow you to experience sky diving. The university is a place surrounded by art, games, and music, yet it doesn't disregard the importance of education.

Full Sail University 2012-2015

Full Sail University was the one and only university that I applied for when I was a Junior in high school. I didn't bother applying anywhere else because I knew that Full Sail University was where I wanted to be. Full Sail has amazing faculties, and the sense of community among your classmate peers whether you are studying online or campus. In my case, I was online, but never felt left out. I was well involved. Plus, when introduce myself to a new teacher each month, I make note to them that I am Deaf. They are super accommodating and considerate for me. If I could afford it, I would always attend there and complete all degrees.

Entertainment Industry... or Bust

Full Sail University has tons of fancy gadgets and bright lights to "wow" their visitors and bring in the big bucks. While I appreciate the experience, I also felt that the price I paid was more than my education is actually worth. My degree is nationally accredited, not regionally accredited (what most colleges are), and so my credits probably won't transfer. So in essence, I have a $85,000 piece of paper that isn't good for a ton of stuff. I also feel like the life-time assistance in career placement isn't all that amazing, and being tens of thousands of dollars in debt means having a job to pay back the costly loans I took out to afford school would be the best return on investment. Alas, it isn't all it's cracked up to be in that respect. I think they just have too many people to assist, with new graduates every month, and they slack on anyone who isn't in that 0-3 month window of post-graduation. However, if you're willing to take on the debt and permanent life as a "pixel gypsy", this college is for you. The skills taught were incredibly helpful for landing my first job working on AAA movie titles and feeling like I belonged there. I would definitely recommend this school for anyone who does ALL of their research and truly wants what this industry can provide for them - or whoever wants to provide everything they can to this industry.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

The stereotype at my school is that once you are done with your program, you will be fully knowledgeable and well prepared for the industry. As far as you want to go, you will go. Yes this stereotype is accurate, the success stories speaks for itself.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

I don't think I can say we have a most popular one, they all are equally popular, fun, exciting, and interesting. You equally learn from them all.

Describe the students at your school.

I'm doing online learning and thus far my classmates are the best. We are from all over and in different degree fields but we are starting off together, and its like our own little online family. We encourage, motivate, help, and push each other to keep going strong.

What are the academics like at your school?

Very fun and interesting.....Full knowledge and understanding of what I will need, and need to know in my field of study in the real world industry.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

It depend on what you here to do, I am in Recording Engineering, so I tend to hang in a community of students who are passionate about music.

What are the academics like at your school?

Because this is a 21-month Bachelors Degree there is no room for error. You should be serious as it is very costly.
