I've seen a lot of comments back and forth on film school ... but I think a huge advantage of film school is the ability to very cheaply check out a lot of different gear. It's real tricky to rent when your under 21 (yes it's doable, but it's not easy ... especially depending on where you live). Also rental really add's up ... and you don't really check out the best gear anyway (it's hard to just "play" with rental gear, since your normally under the $ clock to do something).
You don't have to go to the most awesome film school to get really cheap rental rates as a student. Often the mid-tier schools have great gear. Just going to school ... many rental places give you better rates. ( ... i.e. night school counts as far as gear rental and rental rates, not sure if their is a internet school that has rentals though).
