I've been looking into Full Sail and its Digital Arts & Design program, and I've drawn great interest in applying for it. It seems like a broad and hair-straight-back degree, and word is pretty big about the place right now as it's fairly accredited. But I'd like to hear a bit more.

Is there any graduates of Full Sail occupying these forums who could put in a few words to an eager undergrad-to-be? Every time I say "Full Sail", I get told "Digi-Pen", but admissions are closed and my transcripts seem to agree with Full Sail a bit more. Any advice from someone in the know would be great!

I did the game design course at Full Sail.  It's a pretty good program, but I'd recommend you get a four year degree in computer science first.

Yeah, game education doesn't necessarily mean you'll get a game job.  If that's what you're after, what you actually need is a portfolio, and that goes for both artists and programmers.  Game design jobs are accidents, so you should never bet on them.  After all, you can "learn" design from a book.  Not to mention, design is mostly common sense.  If you're determined to be involved in games, go art or code, or just make games.
