Being in all that debt and making no money is not a recipe for easy living. And this industry is so topsy-turvy that applying a traditional concept like "college" to all of this ever-changing craziness is - in my opinion (FLAME SHIELD UP!), a little weird. If you're going to be a doctor, please, PLEASE go to school, but if you're going to be recording engineer, it isn't an absolute must. Why go through the Full Sail when you're still going to wind up in the school of hard knocks anyway? Cut to the chase, I say.
I know there are some Full Sail grads on this board that are glad they went, but this is an outsider's opinion, so take it for what it's worth.
As for what you *should* do? Well, I'd skip the whole school thing, get REALLY familiar with Pro Tools and all the gear that you can, record some local bands to get your feet wet, then start begging and pleading to make the best cup of coffee your local studio owners have ever had. And by the way, you're a hell of a floor-sweeper.
In contrast, I have heard of several guys who went there for live audio training, and landed killer jobs with Claire Bros. and the like. One guy said there's easily 10-15 times more students in recording than in live sound. But that may be a fish story, I don't know.
Anyway, there are tons of great books, boards like this, and just plain old trial and error to get you started. Once you know your stuff pretty well, and can work fast, just show off your drive and determination, don't take no for an answer, and you'll succeed.
