Couldn't agree more. Got a degree in Business Journalism, but dabbled in graphic design and non-profit work for a few years after undergrad. Gave up a full-time job last year to get a MA in Social Design at MICA. I was nervous as hell about the investment / opportunity cost, but it's ended up being the best decision I've ever made. Program content aside, it's extremely fulfilling to be surrounded by people who are as serious and interested in the field you want to enter as you are. Only wish there was a way to transfer that experience to the undergraduate experience.
