Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Full Sail's credibility (important)

    Woah, never thought i'd see this thread again.

    If anyone's curious, I found another school that I actually think is much better than what I was originally going for. Tuition is less than $10,000 U.S. dollars a year, a 40-50 hour a week drawing/painting/etc curriculum, a 16-to-1 student to teacher ratio, and an 85% hiring rate right out of the school makes this one hell of a school. Every one of the teachers in this school are professional animators/concept artists/etc and teach because they want to (instead of the cash like most other schools do).

    This old timer worked for a company that sold exorbitantly overpriced digital recording gear to FS back in the late 80's.

    FS was BS then, and appears to have since graduated to Pure Grade A BS.

    Don't waste your time on a bogus "degree" from a skool that is no more accredited than the local diesel engine repair "academy".

    When you're in your 40's, balding, stuck with a fat boring spouse and couple of brats, you might want to go back to school, if for nothing else than to just get out of the house. [NOTE: that does *not* describe me. ;-) ] That is when you'll wish that phony "degree" were an acceptable basis for the real graduate program you will find that you are closed off from.

    Go to a real university, get a REAL degree with REAL transferable credits.

    I know, because I transferred from a state university into a fledgling commercial music program at another college I know all about the flaky unprofessional "instructors", most of which are too irresponsible to show up regularly, and are generally no more qualified to teach a course than is the janitor. Thankfully, my college offered a REAL degree that was ACCREDITED by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. With that degree, I have since been admitted to a REAL graduate program.

    Once again, for the unbelievers...
    go to a real university, get a REAL recognized degree with REAL transferable credits.

    The last post in this thread was 4.5 years ago. How did you even find it?

    Age of the thread aside, and despite previously hearing lots of terrible things about it, the game company I work for has quite a few Full Sail grads that are quite skilled. So did the place I was at before this.
