What is your opinion on finishing school for Graphic Design?

Hello everyone,
I was just curious to see what people thought of finishing schools and certificate programs for Graphic Design. I am a senior graduating in December from a BA Art program. I would like to change my focus to Graphic Design and I saw a few different schools offering similar programs such as The Creative Circus in Atlanta, GA, The Portfolio Center also in Atlanta, and The Miami Ad Schools with different locations.

just an opinion, but get your BA degree and then go out into the work world and build a resume… You already have a good art background and degree, and the rest can be built by taking targeted Graphic DEsign classes or learning on your own. Perhaps an internship in graphics design before you graduate wouldn’t hurt either.

Just go for it.

I have heard some pretty good things about The Portfolio Center also in Atlanta.
