3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class style took some getting used to, from that being different than a normal lecture class. However, I've found that small class sizes and the teaching styles, although condensed is true to life training material.

Overall Experience: Although, I have not looked into job/internships prospects, the alumni network is expansive and very gratifying to know that as a student of Full Sail I will have most opportunities that are unknown to those pursuing the same degree, yet not afforded to do so because they are outside of the Full Sail family.

Academic Experience: The Recording Arts program is unique in that I'm learning more about "sound" than I thought was possible. Although, the classes change every month, I like the small, hands on environment learning style. The campus offers a lot of hands on experience and the workload is huge, yet keeps me engaged.

Overall Experience: Choosing Full Sail to attend was the best decision I've made, thus far. The flexibility to allow me to be creative in an environment of other like minded students is refreshing - at best!

Overall Experience: I love Full Sail. I know I chose the right school. I have had problems with the financial aid department post-enrollment. I have been bothered by instructors not grading on-time (aka grading a month after the course closed). Other than that, everything here is great. They give you the tools, it's up to you to decide how you will use them.

Academic Flexibility: You sign up for a 24/7 schedule when you enroll at Full Sail. That shouldn't be a surprise or something to complain about as a student. I haven't had a problem, but I'm sure my schedule will get more involved as I progress in the program.

Career Services: As mention earlier, the Career Development team is there to help you into your future.

Overall Experience: I love Full Sail. I think it's a great institution to be a part of. So much talent has come in and out of the school that I find it hard to believe that I'm actually here. As for the program (RA), it's been well so far. I do believe that RPR course should condense some of the activities spread across different lab times. For example one laptop lab would be dedicated to learning gate, while there's another learning compression. They could be combined into one lab session giving more time to possibly have the students delve into and get used to the analog mixing consoles within the studio. Some professors are extremely lackadaisical. I've had one who took over month to get all the final grades for each assignment in. That's ridiculous. As an anxious student I shouldn't be worrying what my grades are for the month prior while I'm trying to focus on the following class. Overall, the school has many educational seminars and GPS events as well as networking events to help push yourself to get out there. Not to mention, campus is quite appealing.

Overall Experience: Full Sail has a Career Development department that will guide you from the first day you start school. I have yet to contact them, but plan to next week to get a head start on my future and potential internship/job opportunities. The alumni this school has spit out contain reputable individuals who have made something of themselves in the industry. It's incredible to know that my instructors are those who have had experience in the industry. Some Academy Award winners work here so keep your eyes peeled and your smile wide.

Academic Experience: The Recording Arts Program has been well to me thus far. The workload isn't hard, but you get out what you put in. It's up to the student to make the best of it and take the opportunities while here. Full Sail gives you all the tools necessary, but it's up to you to do something about it. I'm doing something about it making my experience worth while.

Overall Experience: It is a great school. Most of what you learn is hands on and very easy to understand. They work with you and make sure you are on the right track.

Academic Experience: There is no specific program here that teaches me about everything I need to know about the one job I want. I want to be whats called a First assistant camera on a film set, but the school will teach you everything from theory, the importance of storytelling, lighting, photography, experience on professional film sets with your fellow classmates and more. They teach you to be a jack of all trades, and what path might be easiest for you to one day get the job you want. In the industry I'm going into, I can't show anyone my diploma and expect to get a job. It's all about being in the right place, finding a job, doing well, getting calls back and working my way up. Full Sail will teach you how to do that the best they can and to me they do a very good job at that.

Academic Flexibility: One thing you need to know about Full Sail before coming here is that there is absolutely no class scheduling flexibility. If you are an accelerated student, one days worth of class is the same amount of information and work as an entire week at a standard university. This means missing 1 single day is missing a weeks worth of information, and you could fail for attendance. If you miss 8 hours you fail. Showing up 15 minutes late surpasses tardiness and counts as 2 hours out. Do this 4 times and you could fail. If you fail for attendance and the class ends and grades go down in the books you are forced to retake the class before advancing to the rest of your course and you must pay to take the class again. Drop the class before the class is over then you technically withdrew and you can retake the class without a charge. Some classes are thousands of dollars to retake so you have to be smart about it. This may be frustrating for some students but I have never had a problem with it yet.

Online Courses: Before becoming a campus student, I took a handful of online classes. I found that the workload was very doable right off the bat. You just have to take a few hours or less out of everyday to do what you need to get done. The platform they use for downloading assignments and communicating with professors/students was extremely easy to use and very well organized which makes class simple to navigate through. One neat thing is you sometimes will attend live lectures with a message board so you can ask questions in real time and get answers just as you would in a campus class. Although i would much more prefer and recommend becoming a campus student, if I had to switch back to an online student I would.

Overall Experience: You can choose to be extended or accelerated in your degree. This means you can get a bachelors in 2 years for accelerated (with 2 classes a month) rather than 4 years which you would see at a normal university. Or the option of a standard 4 year time period for your bachelor with 1 class a month. Having to go through a class in a month means you can't miss a day because you learn so much. If you slack off and miss even one day you could possibly fail which a lot to think about and go through. But if you manage to show up everyday, you will learn so much from the highly experienced professors in your lectures, and labs. So to sum it up, if you put a lot into your classes, you get a lot out.

Academic Flexibility: I can access archives and classes anytime. This has been he most convenient school experience I have ever had.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: The classes are flexible, clearly laid out, and easy to fit into a working schedule. We do have lectures via go to meeting and I find that the only differences are not being able to read someone else's face, and that you can go to class in your underwear.

Overall Experience: Your degree plan and class order is set from the beginning so there will be no choosing outside of which degree you want to earn. Professors are proactive and clearly establish the schedule of deliverables, grading rubrics, and expectations. Professors make themselves available via chat, phone, email, etc.. All you have to do is ask and they will respond and provide extra guidance. The courses are outlined logically and it is very easy to see what is due, and what has been accomplished. Provided that one puts in a solid and honest effort, I do not see any reason to fail a class here.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I rate this school as OK because I am 43 and have a nice paying job now. I would be qualified to earn less than what I am now, in my current IT career field. If I am answering this question from the viewpoint of one who expects this degree to automatically equate to a high paying job upon graduation, that is not going to be the case. Additionally, The entertainment and media fields are highly competitive. I chose this school because I could attend online, and it has significant credentials for music production, recording, and engineering. I can earn a bachelors degree and move along to get my masters. Since it is not regionally accredited (it is nationally accredited), you must also show some creativity and flexibility when planning next steps, but there are good institutions out there that will accept its bachelors.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The school does not have strict admissions standards and you will encounter other students who do not have a strong grasp on grammar. The core classes you will take are informative but not too challenging, but are not the focus of your experience. The focus of the school is to get you ready to enter the entertainment and media field and hit the ground running. They are excellent at that. The classes are one month in length and are broken up into four week segments. You cannot work ahead outside of the current week. I highly recommend accessing your class as soon as it is available so that you are able to assess how much effort needs to be placed on specific parts of the week.

College Math is nothing to be afraid of. The way in which it is taught makes it easier to understand and build from lesson to lesson. I never earned a grade higher than a C in previous math classes and I earned a 96 here. I also tried harder this time.

Overall Experience: You will succeed if you put in an honest effort. Deadlines are strictly adhered to, as they are in the real business and entertainment worlds, so begin your week as soon as it opens. The faculty are experts and give freely of their time and talent. All one has to do is reach out and ask. I am pursuing a Bachelors in Music Production. It helps to being some musical experience with you and will shorten the amount of time you must put in to succeed. The gear that you receive is top of the line.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: At Full Sail, if you show you have any interest in working hard and show you are dedicated to what you do to one of your professors, he/she will get you jobs locally. If you put a lot in here, you get a lot out. Very many students with recording arts majors and film have come out the other side very successful because of what they have learned at Full sail.
