As someone who visited Florida State just over a week ago and is
considering attending their graduate film program, I believe you heard
wrong.  From what I can tell (not a whole lot, mind you), FSU graduate
film students get TONS of hands on experience.  In the first year,
students work with 16mm film and digital sound and editing equipment, all
of which is funded by FSU.  FSU may have it's share of problems, but
hands-on access to equipment is not one of them.
