    I am planning on going to Fullsail…eventually for game dev. My only programing exp. is in HTML and my Math is a little shotty. Do you think I’d make it? I heard a lot of negatives especially where fullsailsucks.com and other “full sail is a scam” threads and sites. Those have barely dettered me but I just wanted to know first hand and in the school, you get weekends off, right? Also, where did you live during your time there and now, if I’m not mistaken, that you have a job, paying off the loans is easy, right? Any other info you can give me is helpful. I want to know as much “insider info” as possible before making to commitment. Right now I am at Job Corps. in Mass. so anything has to be better lol. Thank you very much in advance —Seth

      First off, if you think your Math is shotty improve it! Brush up on your Algebra, Linear Algebra and geometry. They will help you catch up on those at the school but there is no reason to not try and be prepared. As for the programming if you have time look into Lua, Python or Java, just something to get you thinking in code. It isn’t a big deal that you don’t have experience I didn’t when I went.

      As for the fullsailsucks stuff, these people had bad experiences with the school I’m assuming because they didn’t put much into it. The school is what you put into, if you work hard they will help you learn and make great contacts. I got 3 job offers on leaving the school so I don’t think it was a scam :p

      Yes you get weekends off.
      I lived at an apartment complex called Berkshires about half a mile from the school.
      I wouldn’t say paying off loans is easy, you have to know how to manage money, if you know how to do that then yes it can be easier.
