Ok so here in a few months i have decided to go to Full Sail for Web Developing/Designing and after i finish that im going to go back and take Game Developing/Designing classes. I have good html knowledge and somewhat ok php knowledge(still practicing)and little css knowledge. but i want to go to these classes because i love doing this i wanna make a future out of this. i can literally sit here for hours and hours on end doing nothing but practicing my html, php, css i love it.

but anyway im getting off-topic here. Im trying to find out have any of you guys gone to Full Sail? if so was it fun up there? where the classes actually fun? Did the teachers actually teach you or just give you stuff to do? And one more question, should i go to the campus or take there online classes? Id really love to go to the campus and get the full experience of going to collage and actually living on my own and everything but i also think it would be better to just take the online classes(as i can stay home, keep my job, and keep my girlfriend lmao)

please give me some actually student based information on Full Sail. thank you guys

and sorry if this was to long for some of you to read i get carried away sometimes and also sorry if its not in the right section this just seemed like the most reasonable place to post this

Well, you could always: Though, I won't hurt you that much. I did some research, and although I didn't attend FSU, I found several reviews. Here's one of the better ones I found.

I just spent a year in the Education Media Design program and it was great! The online program is the best one out there. Personalized instruction, guidance, counseling, and feedback that is unparalleled. Cutting edge ideas, projects, and expectations. Not easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.

This is a private school, so a bit pricier than any other public university options. Remember, you get what you pay for. I have amazing colleagues all over the country, a supportive career specialist who helped me transition back into the workforce, respected professors who continue to inspire me to do great things.

Definitely check it out. I'd do it all over again!

I also found this (relatively) truthful review..

Full Sail is not accredited by a regional accrediting body, and so credits taken there will not transfer to a real college or university. Your money will be better spent almost anywhere else.

Furthermore, do not trust the preponderance of positive reviews here without looking at the filtered reviews. Something odd is going on.

Remember, I didn't write any of these reviews, but these seem like the most truthful ones. Good luck, sexychicken.

Web Design? I highly doubt that..

Web Developing. i looked into other schools and the only other school i think is good is one my cousin went to in florida. they only offer Game Design, Game Developing, Graphics Design. My cousin said it was a great school now he is getting offers from universal and blizzard he said to design and develop there games/applications. but i really want the web developing skills too

IMO you should get yourself a Computer Science degree from any accredited university or college. That would give you a far better backbone for web development or game development.

But hey, I've only been doing web development for a living for over 10 years now with a BS SC, so do what makes you happy.

A Computer Science degree will give you the background or backbone to code anything. I don't think the school matters as much. So any accredited (credits transfer) college or university. Then you understand control structures and algorithms, you can do anything. PHP is C based after all.

My roommate went to devry, sounds like full sail, I wasnt impressed with his coursework, they taught him specifics in most cases, not general programming. Maybe you should take this to coder's Paradise and ask their advice.

I'm about to go into a double major of Advanced Mathematics and Computer Science. It's probably the most pliable strategy to getting work after you're done in college, and creating many more (much needed) friendships throughout this cruel world. It doesn't matter what school you receive your degree from, anything under MIT is virtually equal in learning environments. I mean, think of it like this, the harder you study outside of school, the more you'll have under your belt when reality witch-slaps you later in life.
