The homework is too much, and expected to be on time, and having clasess every day for 8 hours doesn't give you time to do so (unless after a 1 to 9 pm class you want to keep on studying or doing homework).
Admissions doesn't tell you this. They make you pay the admission fee, and enroll in the university giving hope of changing to a more relaxed schedule, but when you want to, they tell you no-can-do, because of your international status....
-Since the first math class is Calculus, gain a solid foundation in algebra and trigonometry to pass the math entry exam.
-If you've never programmed before, you'll want to buy a good C++ book (I recommend Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days 5th Edition) and learn as much of it as you can before starting, otherwise your brain will be very sore for your first few months.
-If money is tight, do all the general ed and math courses (Composition I, Ethics & Psychology, Public Speaking, Interpersonal Communications, etc.) at a cheap community college first, then transfer the credits into Full Sail.
-If you need to work, have a family to care for, or if you're lazy or a slow learner, I recommend doing the "extended" plan, which is half the normal pace (but still faster than regular university).
-If you're not passionate about the field, don't attend Full Sail for it. In fact, don't major in it at all.
I made sure to check out the school they have a great behind the scenes tour once a month. I applied about 6 months before graduating high school and applied for the schools creative minds scholarship, which I received. I spent much time on my essay and made sure it was perfect. Later I found out that everyone in my class who applied and met the deadlines got the 10k scholarship. The only downfall to getting the scholarship was that I had to start a month before I planned not the case for everyone though. Since I got it I started school 13 days after graduating high school, but since they have classes starting every month you can take your time getting in. If your not totally ready and get the scholarship you may want to take some time to think it over for it is very easy to fail for attendance and have to pay full price per class you have to retake for attendance failure, in some cases pay the same you would have with out the scholarship.
