My experiences at Lynn have been absolutely miraculous. Now, I know that at the very beginning starting your college experience, it is hard to adjust to how different college is from high school and your "past life'. However, at Lynn University people were absolutely friendly, open and helpful. I was an international student who could not even speak English well at the beginning, but the Lynn community was never judgmental. I will never forget my first semester and ALL the amazing people I met and lived with. My floor, my RA, my roommate, and my neighbors gave me the most amazing experience.
I really truly loved living on campus the first few years, and I loved it. I met so many people from so many different backgrounds. I remember I used to love waking up at 6 am to go to the cafeteria and meet my Lynn friends for coffee and small talk before venturing to our next amazing class.
I think I was truly blessed to find an undergraduate experience like Lynn University. The amazing fun memories I made, the amazing professors who helped me build character and grow stronger, the rich and diverse curriculum who help me get an amazing internships in two of the most metropolitan cities in the world, are thing I cannot trade for an Ivy League school.
After all, it is not the tittle of the school, but what you get from your experiences and the choices you make. Every choice can lead you to different outcomes and I am deeply thankful to Lynn University for shaping the women I have become. I have already had two interviews with top companies including the Disney Company. Dreams can come true if you work hard.
The program WILL give you the solid fundamentals of video production that are universal. They teach Final Cut Pro (now I think they also have Adobe Premier) they give you the fundamentals of camera operating, sound, lighting, even writing for the screen and you can check out equipment when you want (provided it's available)
But it is up to you to make the most of these tools, that's where the real learning happens. Alot of things about working on a professional set they wont teach you, but neither will any of the other schools. I've met many kids who went to USC, UCLA, LMU, the "ivy leagues" of film schools and the knowledge base was comparable, but still far away from working in a professional. That type of stuff you can only learn by working on sets and interning on films is something I highly recommend.
And for the record, yes I personally know of several SOU alumns who are "making it" in LA, but these people are very motivated and have to the means to live in LA, which is no cake walk.
Put simply, you get what you put into it. Howard Schreiber is a great instructor and has the patience to personally help you with you projects. The best advice I could give you is create an impressive demo reel (you'll need one when applying for production jobs) and if you can own any equipment such as a camera or editing software, it will make finding work easier.
