SXR's Adventures in University Empty SXR's Adventures in University

Greetings to one and all, I, SXR have taken the step towards furthering my career in animation by going to a University. Which University you may ask?

SXR's Adventures in University Full_s11

That's right, Full Sail University. Now, I was told going to Full Sail was a bad idea but... well, it was a little too late to pull out so I've decided to give it the best I've got. I've also decided to give you guys updates on my adventures here, projects I'll be doing and, when I get to them, I'll post a link to my wip projects here so you may watch and critique them.

This is an exciting time for me and I hope you guys will enjoy what I post.

While i'm here, I'll give you a little update on what I've been doing thus far. As you may have noticed, I've been gone the past few days. Part of that is because of my schedule being a little hectic thus far and the other part is that my apartment has no internet at the moment. That may or may not be fixed today.

Anyways, to begin, the first thing I got upon starting here is...

A mac... DUN DUN DUUUUNNN. a macbook pro to be precise. While it is an awkward machine to get used to at first, so far it's been treating me alright and I've started getting used to how it works. While I was opposed to using a mac at first, I guess the reason as to why i'm not right now is... well it's free AANNDD I got the entire adobe package along with it. So i'm not gonna complain all that much. I also got my schedule today for classes and so far all I've got are night classes. So i'm not gonna be TOO busy, but more so than I've been recently.

If you've got any questions I'd be happy to answer.

I feel obligated to point out that chances are the people there won't be too accepting of sprite animation

I would suggest showing them a Death Battle or two

Is Full Sail good so far? I was debating if I should apply to it soon.

i got an HP with Windows 8 (shit) and it fucking turns out there's no damn CD drive, it'd have to be external. so i'm super pissed and want to return it and i start to reboot the computer to factory settings since i'm gonna return it, and so we call Best Buy (we got a bundle for cheap) and find out they have another laptop for $50 more with a CD drive and its a Toshiba, but is like a pound heavier and .4 in thicker (which is barely anything). then my moms like we can just get an external cd drive for it and you'll have a really light laptop and can use the CD whenever you want, or just get the slightly bigger one with a CD drive. so i'm like shit i shoulda just got an external drive, but my laptop is already restarting, and i couldn't stop it. so i turn it off while its restarting and turn it back on and the computer is fucked up and cant work anymore, but we can still return it (i've had it for like 1 day). so now i have to get a new laptop and do all this shit all over again. fak mah lief
TL;DR: i just highjacked SXRs thread

I'm still in High School...can't wait till I'm out of it, it sucks.. I'm totally going to like College better. Still thinking about what it would be like. What made you so interested in this College, SXR? I need to know for some motivation on picking my college in 2 years. :/

what makes you look forward to college? its kinda depressing in a way. depends how well off you are/how much money you get in grants, or your situation in general.

"According to The New York Times, Full Sail is regarded more highly than many other institutions in the for-profit college industry.[30] They reported that some of the university's academic programs have high loan burdens and low graduation rates. The $81,000 video game art program graduated 38 percent of its students, who carried a median debt load of nearly $59,000 in federal and private loans in 2008.[30] The Times cited other Full Sail degree programs as having higher graduation rates, noting that the master's in entertainment business, "a yearlong program with a $36,245 tuition, graduated 80 percent of its students, nearly 63 percent of them on time."[30] According to Inside Higher Ed, "a closer look at the numbers reveals that graduation rates are not a major problem at Full Sail: the overall graduation rate is a fairly high 78 percent, according to federal data."[2][51] In the same article, however, The New York Times noted that Full Sail's own students have posted criticisms of the school, including some that call Full Sail a "scam" because of its high costs, low placement, and difficulties with credit transfer.[30]"

You live in israel?

So I guess i'm the only one who is happily going to go to the military, go to my MOS school(where I learn my job) for about a year, use the GI bill and go to college for free. Go back into the military as an officer for about 20 years and be making a around a 80k salary. Marry a friend and tell her she will get good af! benefits. And I will get a extra 1200 a month, which will equal out to 100k a year for a job where I will be 90% sitting around looking busy 10% actual work.
Retire at age 37 and I will be making around 40k as lifetime payment from the military Very Happy
I win Very Happy

Ouch.
I'm still trying to choose between going to work straight after I finish Highschool (I'm in one of those professional courses that basically get you a job as soon as you are done. You have 2.5 years of school and the other half is just internship in a company. After you're done, if they like you, they'll keep you, and you graduate. I mean you graduate anyway you just might not get the job. but they send your resume over to alot of companies so it's K.)
I'll probably go straight to work for like a year and then I'll go to college.
Sorry your thread kinda turned into our thread SXR
