Subject: MS in information security

Hello,

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
