Full Sail University is a wonderful four-year college. I currently attend online and my current major is Creative Writing for Entertainment. My career advisor has been with me every step of the way throughout my academic year, and my instructors are even better! They're always available if I have any questions or if I need any help. They always make sure that everyone is involved in class discussions and GoTo Meetings. The meetings are fun because we all get together and share our opinions, discuss the work, share our assignments, and the professors make it fun. Whether you're or not you're doing great in class, they always let you know and offer to help you improve. Outside of class are various resources to available to students, such as the library, the writing center, lynda.com, Safari books, and technical support.
Review Full Sail University
Full Sail University is a great school, academic-wise! The instructors know the subject being taught very well. They're always there to help you in any way they can. They push you to do the best that you can, creating professional works of art that you can put in your portfolio. It can be challenging, especially when you're an online student, but the way that each month just focuses on one course really helps with time management. You don't have to worry about two or more classes at once. You can find a way to balance work, school, and home life. Full Sail even has an accelerated program, which has you graduate earlier than a regular college. Now, the only thing that I would say isn't really great about the school is payment. They do charge a very high tuition, and they don't offer many scholarships. If you plan on applying to the school, I would suggest applying for as many of their scholarships as you can the moment you are going through your admission.
Overall, I have enjoyed my time so far at Full Sail University. The advisement team is supportive and willing to make sure you are setup for success in your program. The degree program I am enrolled in is very challenging compared to previous post high school education. The classes are very involved and often require working together will fellow students. I believe this school does an excellent job of preparing you for pursuing a position in your field after graduation. One area for improvement is the faculty is not always very prompt at providing grades and feedback on work submitted. Also, professors do not always respond to student inquiries in a timely or professional manner.
