data how on earth did you come to know so much about post secondary education?

Data 03-07-2011 00:14

Wikipedia, my friend.

i think the real point of full sail is that you don't need any kind of entrance exams, essays or good grades to get in

it's basically a school for lazy idiots who think they are "too smart" for real college. newsflash, any kind of normal successful life (monetary and otherwise) involves years of hard work, brains and a bit of luck. you can't "skip" one of the intermediary steps and expect to get anywhere in life. validuz is a clear-cut example of this

interestingly, most state schools have pretty lax standards for admission and in some cases have programs to subsidize your entire tuition fee if you keep up a decent gpa. like i said you have to be some kind of idiot to go to full sail

Never said it was. The courseload is the only "hard" factor of it. The coursework itself is narrow, focused, and limited in scope.

is this one of those threads where everybody laughs at validuz for making **** up and being a retard that got stuck on a hill?

Yes, but is it redundant?

Yeah what kind of engineer doesn't understand that objects in motion add to their relativistic mass due to the equivalence of mass and energy.

:lol: And another angry retard says **** he can't back up. I never "flaunted" any part of my education. In fact, I've explicitly stated that it was a mistake going to FS and that I don't even use the degree.

Deal?

Keep backpedaling, children. Far-left and far-right retards alike can group up as you please. Nothing will ever change the fact that you're morons, not even my lack of physics-related education.

Your rage only boosts my ego and reassures me that I'm right.

wait, what engineer doesn't understand basic principles of physics?

do you know how gravity works?

Actually you do, but if you have a proper high school algebra/calc education, it's not difficult.

All ironic, considering this **** used to brag about how easy Cornell was and that he didn't have to attend classes, just show up for the tests because everything was so dumbed down and easy. He complained about how even the dumbest people were getting A's.

Now that he graduated (on his father's dime of course -- because he never worked a day in his life), the school is suddenly prestigious and honorable. :lol:

They are located in Winter Park, FL.

Gave development = game programming = C++/C#. Not design. Or at least, not when I attended.

Harvard is $160k vs 50k. Don't know exactly what math you're using, but of course, this is coming from the fat loser who had half-naked anime/pedophile images in his sig that he meticulously placed his name on over 400 of them to show everyone what a basement-dwelling loser he is.

Yes, all engineer fields are the same, they just have different categories for flavor!1

:rofl: Jesus Christ out of all of the things you could've possibly asked.

Do you?

Result of thermodynamics? Gravitons? :shrug:

Let me know when you find out.

(p.s. Also not my field. I'll at least give you that, even though it should be obvious.)

Special---K 03-07-2011 01:53

well..Cornell is prestigious

the point of those schools is that it's difficult to get in because you have to to have demonstrated a pretty high level of academic success and cognitive ability (for a 17-18 year old) to even be considered


from Full Sail's website:
Admissions - Requirements : Full Sail

Prerequisites

Bachelor***8217;s Degrees:
You must have a High School diploma or GED from a recognized and accredited school to begin a degree program at Full Sail. You***8217;ll also need a letter of recommendation. Your admissions representative will provide you with the form for this letter, or it may be downloaded once you have enrolled.

Computer Animation and Game Art program applicants should possess artistic skills. Traditional art classes are recommended prior to entering these programs. A foundation of sketching, sculpting, and painting are important for the animation industry and are essential in developing the 3D artist.

Game Development program applicants must meet specific eligibility requirements by demonstrating a minimum foundation in Algebra II. Advanced math classes such as precalculus and trigonometry are strongly recommended. Introductory programming courses are also recommended.

that's it
no minimum GPA, no SAT, no SAT II, no extracurriculars

val explain to me how pointing out that you're full retard means that someone is either far left or far right. political ideology is completely irrelevant

hey val

why don't you tell us the sob story of why you couldn't attend a community college and then transfer to a state university instead your best option was a non-accredited technical school that ended up costing you 75k

this oughta be good

If you're a moron, you probably would believe that.

Bush must be more intelligent than all of you. His school was better after all. And they only accept the best of the best.

Reading is fundamental. I never said that there's an SAT/etc. requirement. I said you have to take a high school math test (alg/calc).

4-5 people out of the 30 that took it when I was attended, failed it, and weren't "accepted."

Not stringent for sure, but still true.

can you define "prestigious" for me pls

why do you defend full sail

we could be laughing with you instead of at you

thats usually what differentiates outright losers from non-uptight normal human beings

Excellent question! I should've!

p.s. It didn't cost me 75k though. Way, way less.

I don't defend it. I don't need to, nor do I want to. You're just incapable of reading properly.

Why do you confuse facts that conflict with your preconceived notions as support for the opposition or subject at hand?

That's also true. Had I known anything about gs or gd.net I would've.

The opportunity came up, and I took it without thinking it through clearly. Young and stupid. :shrug:

i'm going to go ahead and bet money that you (and most people) have the issue of being too dumb to get in rather than being able to afford it

also if you're smart enough you don't need money because the school gives need-based aid grants to people.

val why not just admit the school sucks and that u were 19 and made a dumb decision

its easier to manup and admit it then get keep going on like this getting trolled

seems like were 19 and admit u were on your own, seems reasonable to make mistakes

Nah, grade-wise, I was fine. I just didn't give enough of a **** back then.

I already said exactly this many times. Stop reading what the retards say.

And I'm not getting trolled.

so what are you up to now anyway?

on a related note i got an electric engineer coworker to make an iphone app and in a month from not knowing **** (except a little scripting he did as a kid) to making a basic game... granted the game was an incredibly stupid and unoriginal idea, had 0 advertising, it worked and he actually made a few hundred $.

this started from the point of him whining about how miserable he is at his job as an EE lol

streetwi$e 03-07-2011 02:12

where u go to school at age 18 has a lot to do with your parents and social/family environment

even if your smart you can be in the wrong direction, **** happens most people regret what they picked at age 18, no one will admit it though

i respect people like ayz that went to duke and had their act together but ayz is also asian and probably had a strong family network pushing him

val from what he says was basically left on his own

im not an eknight for val im just being realistic about it, if he admits it was a mistake then fine his biggest error was trying to pass it off as a real degree and lieing about his "other" degree

it would also help if val was not such a douche on a regular basis
