Unfortunate Student Loan debt.Super BrilliantFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Unfortunate Student Loan debt. Have placed over 50 calls since 2012 to Career Development and either do not get a return call or they are unable to find placement in the past 3 years. Simply gave up.Would love a refund.

This school is a complete scam, especially ifQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
This school is a complete scam, especially if you plan on continuing education. The only job I am able to receive with this degree is as a bartender. I am currently attempting to go back to school to receive a bachelors degree from a REGIONALLY accredited university. Then was hit with another whammy!! Even though Full Sail does not transfer and is not recognized as anything, I still technically have a bachelors degree. This means I am ineligible for financial aid assistance. Now I am stuck as a bartender. The only way I am able to receive a bachelors from a regionally accredited school is if I can somehow pay out of pocket. I cannot continue to law school or a masters program, nor am I even able to receive a real bachelors degree! I do not understand how this school is able to exist with so many alumni unemployed, and lives ruined!! This is a very expensive school. That is a lot of debt, with very few career prospects. This is a cautionary tale, and I hope that I can help at least one person avoid this nightmare.

Absolute waste of money and time.Quite BrightArt & Design Department
Absolute waste of money and time. I recently left and transferred out of FS and it was the best decision I have ever made. I was spending tens of thousands of dollars to SELF TEACH myself. They do not tell you going in that you need to be at somewhat of an intermediate skill level to be able to keep up. Yes, when I left, I had a 3.8 GPA, but that was also because the teachers just hand you A's. AND the final kicker to this whole ordeal... when I decided to transfer out and go to another school, NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING transferred over. All of my credits were lost. It's a specialty private school, so no matter where you go, nothing will transfer over. Please, I am begging you, if you are even the slightest considering attending Full Sail, PLEASE do your research. I hope future students do not make the same mistake I made by attending this school.
