"I went to Full Sail for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s. A year later after my Master’s I have nothing to show for it. I even got certified in Avid Media Composer and that didn’t help. All the leads that career counseling gives out are jokes. Most are unpaid internships which only benefit the students with rich parents since Mommy and Daddy will pay for everything any ways."

"I feel that the college was very knowledgeable about the information they provided, however, they had not adequately prepared me for the professional world. That, and they are not regionally accredited, only nationally accredited. This means that anyone looking to switch industries, like becoming a teacher or some other professional position, would not be able to go into it without other adequate education, which is what I had to do in order to switch gears and become an educator. That, and it was very expensive, not really telling students how much it would really cost them overall."

"As the business school is fairly new, I was ready for the worst. I just about get that. Class after class, Im presented with work and assignments that literally do NOTHING for me. Some assignments require me to find information that doesnt exist. Others are simply a waste of time. I want to do REAL. WORK. Have real experiences under my belt, real things to show! Isnt that what Full Sail claims to offer? Real world education? Plus, Ive experiencing true evil, such as getting scholarships taken away just for switching degree programs. I worked hard for a $20,000 scholarship and lost it just because I had a better idea of what I wanted to do with my career. Also, dont get me started on their beloved Hall of Fame week. Full Sail has studios that are literally falling apart yet theyre able to pay for thousands of dollars worth of staging and fireworks for their award ceremony and Apple TVs and drones that they just give away for free to buy their students love. Yet, they cant take care of their rusting school or offer us students more to enhance our experiences and skills. God, I could say much more but its not worth my time."

"Full Sail is a great University just like all others. You will need to be an really driven to succeed in the entertainment industry. With a degree from Full Sail you will be able to get employed in both the private and federal sectors. Be sure you live in a state or city where there are plenty of jobs, and where the career development department can actually help you."

"As I'm progressing each month through my program, I'm falling more and more in love with my school. The course work is rigorous and the schedule is challenging - and that's exactly the kind of pressure I thrive under so I enjoy that it's not simple. If the content were so simple, I wouldn't feel as if I was really learning. My brain enjoys being made to think. I do warn that the schedule and the standard of the courses is not for everyone. Semesters are crammed into month long time periods, which is very unlike a standard university where semesters are usually 4 months long. Moving on, I applaud that the professors here are all people who have been in the industry, or, in most cases, are STILL working in the industry alongside teaching. They have experience in working with their material and I believe that gives them edge. They have a passion for what they do and it shows in their lectures when they can not only teach the material but also give insider information or tips from their own experiences. Another thing I've come to enjoy about this campus is the networking opportunities. Guest speakers will often hold seminars for students to attend, and we are given the chance to see what it takes to succeed in our fields, to ask questions, to see what success looks like, how to get there, and we are able to network with these professionals - many of whom are graduates of Full Sail. The final thing I want to mention about this school is the mindset of the students attending here. Everyone is so passionate and very excited to get out into our respective industries. There is a drive to succeed and it's very motivating to be surrounded by like minded individuals."
