Hey, I am 31 years old and have always wanted to go to school for music production. I almost went to Full Sail 10 years ago, but decided to do some traveling, goofing off, etc.
Now that I'm somewhat settled down, I decided it was time to do what I always wanted to do. So I signed a contract to attend Full Sail on August 1st. Like I said.
I almost went 10 years ago because I heard so many good things about the school back then, that I didn't think twice about it.
One night I decided to search the internet for opinions on the school....my excitement turned to panic, worry, regret, etc. because of all the "Scam" claims. Then I came across your site.
I just want to thank you for your unbiased opinion and response to others that post on this site. It has really given me back the confidence in knowing that I am making the right decision, and more so, given me back my excitement and motivation to attend Full Sail.

You're welcome, Adam.
People are people. They have feelings and they are taught to beleive that a school of any kind has their best interests at heart.
Many private schools take advantage of this and earn money by giving nothing back to trusting people who associate educational institutes with the Holy Monestary.
Full Sail is like any other business. They have some of the best tools in the industry and they realize that successful alumni is the key to their growth or demise.
I am shocked that you waited to inform yourself about the school AFTER you'd already signed a contract.
I never recommend signing up for such an expensive program without doing your due diligence. Would you buy $50,000 of stock in a company before educating yourself first?
Attending Full Sail or any other school should be looked upon as an investment in yourself by growing your knowledge base.
Invest poorly and you'll lose. Invest in what you know and you can't lose unless you don't hold up your end of the bargain.
Your end is to supply the brains, attitude, motivation and passion.
No one can stop you if you get into a decent school and uphold your end of the bargain.
Absence of any of these and your chances for failure jumps dramatically.
