5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I began the Creative Writing For Entertainment online program in 2014. I was told by everyone that I talked to that it was going to be fast paced, so there were no surprises. Each month is a different class, so there's a lot of information that's crammed into the weeks leading up to the finals at the end of each month. It is hard, but the resources you are offered are limitless. You are given a Liaison that calls you every month; they'll tell you about your upcoming class and advice other students have given to prepare. Your instructors are more than willing to work with you; you can call them, email them, or meet with them online to have a one-on-one if you wish. I'm certain I wouldn't have learned as much about the industry as I have at Full Sail. The classes are taught by those who also work in that industry, and have first-hand experience that they're more than willing to share.

Overall Experience: I've only taken online classes so far, but I can tell Full Sail is going to be a totally different, new experience for me.

Academic Experience: I didn't want to leave! I first arrived scared and confused if I should ask everybody about their experience or what it takes or slow down and go with the flow to see what they wanted to say exactly for their own experience .

Overall Experience: The recruiters are amazing. When I first requested information on my major, they gave me someone with experience and knowledge in my degree program, they explained and broke down the information in great detail and made sure it was the right program for me before getting me started on my application. They asked me questions and made sure that any questions I had were answered directly and precisely.

Overall Experience: So far, they've made me feel included. Although I am an online student, they give me the opportunity to be apart of events that normally only on-campus students could do. I have access to campus if I were to visit, and they treat you like they treat all of their students whether you're online or on campus.The only thing that kept me from giving the 5 star rating was the financial aid process. It has been very stressful and at times confusing. But other than that, it's an amazing school

Overall Experience: Full Sail University is an amazing school. All of the instructors have years of experience in their field - not just teaching, but actual real world working experience.

Overall Experience: The tuition is very expensive but it is a university with a great reputation. So far the program that I am has me learning a lot and I really do love the way that the online courses are set up. Every month I am focusing on one class at a time and dedicating that month to that one class.

Overall Experience: My overall experience with Full Sail has been amazing. I absolutely love the fact that you are learning from professionals who have actually worked in the career field that I am pursing. The teachers are very down to earth, and genuinely care for the student. My only critique is that while applying, I was not eligible to be considered an independent student, when in fact, I am paying for my tuition without the help of my parents. But, the campus is beautiful, the teachers are great, and you are going to get an education focused on the career that you choose.

Overall Experience: I enjoy my school very much. Theses classes are so unique. Most of the teachers take the time out to help their students and figure out what is making a student struggle in a specific area. The only thing I dont like is, not fully understand my tuition cost. I thought I was paying $17,750 for the whole Game Art program but after six months in I was told that was for just one academic year. Now I have to try to borrow more money. That's the only thing I don't like about this school. Other than that, I love going here and I'm proud to tell everyone I meet about Full Sail University.

Overall Experience: I have been an online student for about a year. I love the experience and help I am receiving. For an online student, there has to be self motivation and time management! The resources provided are the best, there are so many opportunities to learn and network! Whatever effort you put into it, will be what you receive. Instructors are always willing to help.

There is one thing I do wish the school would be able to help with and be open to helping financially, offering scholarships. Yes, they do help with the financial aid process.

I currently have an invoice in which I am currently looking for income means to cover the balance or I will have my classes interrupted.

Otherwise my experience at this school has been great! :)

Overall Experience: The school is unique because ALL of the instructors actually care. They may be teaching two or three other classes, but they love their jobs, and it shows in their teaching. They actually take the time to help you if you need it, but if they can't help, they will send you to someone that can. The school itself is full of students that all share many things in common, so it's very easy to make friends.

Overall Experience: It is hard but that is to be expected. The school could do a better job integrating the online and campus students.

Overall Experience: So far here is all that I have to say, if you do not like the accelerated schedule, then why are you here in the first place? This university is meant to teach you your major and help you build up personal skills that will help get you a job. I will say that attending classes at times are rough and if there is no snack in my backpack and i'm in a five hour class in the evening, let's just say I am never screwed.

Overall Experience: This school is a joke. There is in support or help whatsoever with helping pay for school, all they want you to do is get loans.

Overall Experience: So far everyone that I have come in contact with has been amazing at providing updated information and answering all questions and concerns that I have had. I can tell that this will be a lot of work but if they are consistent all around with the support I've received thus far I am sure I'll be just fine.

Overall Experience: I fully enjoy Full Sail university. Its a great college for people who are interested in the Arts Program! I am an online student there and I have learned so much in such little amount of time. I almost have my Bachelors Degree and I thank Full Sail for it!

Overall Experience: I really like how the school is. Don't come here if you aren't willing to work for what you want. I'm not a fan of the scheduling, I've had 5am and 1am classes which aren't fun but I feel like having this crazy schedule will help me when I go into the entertainment industry. I have learned so much since going here, they really teach you from the ground up. I have a friend that told me he learned more in one month of degree-specific classes at Full Sail than he learned in 2 years of his other school. People that complain about this school just don't have what it takes. They don't have the work ethic. The teachers are good and the classes aren't hard, I currently have a 3.91 GPA, people who drop out of this school are just out right lazy. The one thing that this school is really missing for me though is the lack of concept art classes, if they included more concept art classes this would be the perfect school for me.

Overall Experience: I've never seen or been enrolled into a school like this. What they offer doesn't even compare to other schools. I wish I had come upon it way sooner than I did.

Overall Experience: This school Im so glad I tumbled across it while reading a Game Informer magazine. Honestly by that point no school really offered what I wanted to do specifically. I had went to AI but they were getting such a bad rep from the whole stealing money situation I knew it wasn't for me. It was like it was a sign, I told myself that Im going to stick with this and finish. Through out my 9 month journey I was fortunate to have helpful staff like Sylvia J. contact me and give me a pick me up. My professors Ive stayed in contact with some because they've also helped me as well. Overall this school is awesome and its online program is amazing. They really want you to succeed and its not about the money, these people genuinely care. For them, my family and myself I will do just that.

Overall Experience: This University is expensive, and isn't getting any cheaper. It costs me $77,000 for a bachelors. This University offers both campus, and online courses. Wither your coming here for film, animation, game design, ect, goto the campus. One of the great things about attending a campus for the entertainment industry is Networking. Over everything else, networking will land you a job better than a piece of paper showing your degree. I would have to say, Full Sail having a student population of 20,000, you'll get to know a lot of people. Being surrounded by so many like minded people will also give you a sense of community and will help to keep you pushing. Whats also great about Full Sail is the accelerated courses and you can get a bachelors in 22 months rather than 4 years. Amazing experience so far. Be prepared to work. Lots of late night classes and some 12 hour work days. Which of course gets you prepared for the industry.
