Full Sail was founded in 1979 by John Phelps and initially it was a place where students could learn everything about recording, mixing as well as marketing music. But over the years, the school has added a host of programs in a wide variety of entertainment, media and computer based careers.

    It is intriguing to see the mentality, demeanor and character of those who disapprove of Full Sail University. The prevailing lack of grammatical refinement is just one of many attributes of such individuals.
    Full Sail University’s curriculum as well as it’s comparably lax academic restrictions (i.e. no minimum ACT/SAT score required) combine to form an inherent appeal to prospective students with less aggressive work ethic (i.e. lazy).
    Full Sail Admissions Directors meet personally with each student, either over the phone or in person (or both) prior to admission, to determine student-to-school compatibility and passionate desire for success.
    The students that succeed are those who are capable of success in the industry. Those who are self motivated and aggressively pursue their goals and dreams will greatly succeed at Full Sail University.
    Employees of various companies within the actual industry are expected to do their job professionally, on time and without complaint. Full Sail University expects no less from the students it invests it’s time in, and who will one day bear it’s name as their institution of education.
    For examples, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_Sail_University – see Full Sail University Alumni & Productions.
    Full Sail University weeds out the amateurs.

    I’ve tried posting here a couple times…. maybe third time’s a charm.

    Eric, what the heck are you smoking? Full Sail sets the academic bar incredibly low. Sadly, some graduates write at the level of a sixth grader. This has little to do with the student, but a lot to do with the quality of instruction. I’ve sat though Full Sail’s “creative writing” and “storytelling” classes and they are run like a daycare. Little to no interaction between instructor and student except for reminders to stay awake and stay off facebook. No one should pay $2400 for that level of education. Full Sail charges $80,000 for a subpar education. Students are graduating with worthless degrees and a huge burden of debt. A lot of the debt is federal loans. And as a taxpayer, I find this offensive.

    It is interesting to see corporate tools hired by FS show up on random sites and still try and play up this scam of an institution.

    The students that succeed are those who are capable of success in the industry.

    Ya think that one up by yourself there, Chomsky?

    Like Eric Chomsky says, if you are motivated, don’t waste time and money on Full Sail. You already have all the tools you need to succeed. Get a non paid internship (FS counts those as after school placement). They totally prepare you for that, teaching you to make coffee with bottled water and for the inevitable SSL9000 “ET Phone Home” trick. There, I just saved you 30 grand. Now spend 4 hours practicing rolling up audio cable lol. An absolute joke of a school. It would be interesting if their insurance company would force random drug tests on the staff…
