I was hit by a car outside of UCF. I had to go to therapy to even move my arm. This conflicted with my school, and they didn't care. My tuition and loans ran out, and that was it. They kicked me out because I had no more funding and I was unable to get a halt to classes because I couldn't even pay rent.
I'm now a soldier, and I pay almost $800 a month on my loans still.
Do I regret the education. No. Do I regret the school. Yes.One VERY common thing you will hear here, is that you can get this exact education from books. Go invest in Lynda.com or Safari books online, and you will get JUST as good of an education. For learning art and design though, you're on your own.

Full Sail is a business before a university, plain and simple. I am two months away from graduating with my BS in music business and I feel that my experience here has been just that, BS. All of the classes are way too easy... Like STUPID easy. I am amazed at the number of people who drop out; not the ones who are smart enough to transfer to a REAL school before they have wasted too much time/money here (kudos to them), but the morons who actually FAIL so many times that they give up. I maintain a very active social life, show up to almost all of my morning classes hungover from the night before, sleep through lectures, give a maximum of about 10% effort, and procrastinate on every single project, yet I STILL manage to maintain a 3.7GPA... HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?! This place is an absolute JOKE. I am $108k in debt, even though I only took out loans for my first year here, and I am going to have to get ANOTHER bachelors degree from a REAL university before I can even think about applying to graduate/law schools because EVERY industry professional I come into contact with (that doesn't have some kind of financial ties to Full Sail) chuckles at the fact that I expect a halfway decent pay-grade after graduation... AWESOME. I wish I wasn't in a constant drunken stupor for the first eight months that I was here, otherwise I would've realized what a MASSIVE waste of time and money this place is and gotten out of this awful town... Seriously, on top of Full Sail being the very definition of absurd, Orlando is one of the least desirable places on the entire planet. I have become accustomed to calling it 'the armpit of the earth', and nobody here has tried to correct me yet. Here's some advice: if you want to be mediocre in all aspects of life (education (ha), income, social standing, etc.), then apply to Full Sail. Correction, give Full Sail permission to rob you blind in exchange for a third-rate 'education', because they will accept any idiot who is capable of signing on the dotted line, but if you want to be successful or actually learn something then look elsewhere, this is not the place for you.The student body passes around random memes/jokes about Full Sail in an attempt to brighten up our long, miserable days here, and the saddest one also happens to be the most truthful: "Full Sail, where dreams go to die..."
