Interesting for certain! $81,000.00 is a foolish amount of money for a 21 month program. Wow.

Anyone in the know has long been aware that Full Sail is a joke without the funny bit at the end.

Just to hear them actually try to spin that type of business as good for the average person is about as ridiculous as anything I've ever heard.

What are some other comparably ridiculous things you've heard? :mrgreen:

Seriously, the problem I have with the vast majority of these so-called "schools" is that it's a cash grab, pure and simple. The educational needs of the students seem to take a back seat to the marketing side of things.

What percentage of their entire budget did she say went to "marketing"? Scandalous.

I know, right?

Makes me wonder the same about other "schools."
