MS in information security

I noticed that the question of 'CISSP or degree' got a lot of feedbacks and comments.  I am also considering more 
education in order to enter security field.  I already have BS degree from good school and working for a IT company 
working with various applications.  However, I have always wanted to be a little bit more technical and be exposed to 
more research-like environment.  Not sure if I want Ph.D., but definitely looking at one of those MS in information 
security.  Georgia Tech and several other reputable universities offer such program.  

After working almost 2 years in industry, I know that experience is really important and that I can acquire the 
knowledge myself through many sources although I don't go back to school to do it. On the other hand, the idea of 
getting higher or specialized education and degree is really appealing.  Also, since my current work does not have 
anything to do with security, getting more education might offer me a better chance of getting in to security field 
than studying on my own, getting some certs and try to convince companies to believe that I know about security. 

Any opinions welcome
