Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The pro's are they really teach you real life things you need to be aware of in the industry and they give you everything you need for the learning experience for the most part, the cons are the school is ridiculously expensive and half way through the program you run out of money leaving you helpless unless your are rich or can be lucky enough to receive scholarships.

Degree: Visual Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

The Media Design Master of Fine Arts program is definitely challenging. You learn a lot throughout the course of the program, and I can already tell that my skills have vastly improved since I first started. The cons of the program are that it is pretty expensive if you don't have a lot of scholarships or grants, and you don't get as much of the interaction with your classmates as you would on campus.

The graduate program I am attending is beneficial to me in ways that will help me develop the skills that I intend to procure for self-employment or personal business ventures. I enjoy the challenges that the curriculum has to offer. As a writer I am looking for new ideas and ways to express my inner-most thoughts. This Creative Writing Program helps me to explore and expound on my ideas and execute my work process. I don't feel that there are many cons dealing with Full Sail University. I have always received prompt responses when dealing with faculty and staff in departments such as admission, financial aid, as well as student success services. So far my professors have been most helpful in making sure myself and my classmates understand the curriculum and that we come out on top of our class.

Full Sail University is an awesome entertainment industry institution. By rating it on graduateprograms.com gives me privilege and honor. I am elated to be associated with either of them. The decision to attend school on the graduate level is scary and graduateprograms.com makes that easier and more of an informed decision. I know it was the best choice of my life. Thanks graduateprograms.com and Full Sail University.

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2013

Full Sail's online platform is better than any other I've seen (like Blackboard). The teachers really want to help you improve, and are very encouraging. Most classes are structured very well and make it reasonably easy to keep up. However, as an online student, it is difficult to "participate" in Full Sail activities and therefore get credit for the GPA score (which basically gives you a rating on how professional you are). Financial Aid is a nightmare, and they only respond to e-mails if they need something from you or if your question is easy to answer. Otherwise, Financial Aid ignores you. That's definitely the worst part of Full Sail's program.

I attend Full Sail online, so some of the questions didn't apply. Overall, I think it's a wonderful school with wonderful opportunities.

Full Sail University provides very challenging programs. Some instructors respond quickly and do an excellent job of answering questions, while others take more time and leave generic comments. It took me a while to get in contact with Financial Aid, but they did try to work to resolve the issue of concern once they called back. If you are into making serious connections, this is a great place to be. They do grade students on professionalism and participation, so be prepared to work hard.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of my school is the technology, the instructors, the fact that they equip you with a MacBook Pro and the necessary hardware and software for your given program. The cons is minor. I only wish they had more webinar programs for the online students. Outside of that, I love my grad school experience at Full Sail!
