Which school is best? Is one Miami Ad School locale better than others?


I was wandering if you could help me rank the ad schools that are out there. I am currently working on an MBA in Marketing in Nashville,TN and I am seriously considering applying to an ad school next year.
The problem is I am not sure about some of them I have seen. I know that you two endorse the MAS and VCU wholly, and also have good things to say about Creative Circus and Portfolio Center in ATL, but I am curious about The Chicago Portfolio School in Chicago. It seems to me that a one year program doesn’t really help to build the foundation that the other schools do.
I am also curious if any section of the MAS is as good as the one in Miami. I am looking at the one in Minneapolis (I really dislike Miami) and wanted to know what you thought about that branch of the school.
Obviously I will be applying to all of these programs because all of them are top-notch, but I wanted to hear what you two thought about maybe the order in which I should focus my efforts. After MAS and VCU, might Creative Circus be better than The Portfolio Center? Or the other way around?
Thanks for all the advise you guys give out. It is a testament to how convincing you guys are when after an MBA (was going to settle for strategic planning) I am seriously considering two more years of school so I can work towards my dream of being a CD.

intro Which school is best? Is one Miami Ad School locale better than others?We would have to rank the Creative Circus right up there. We’re also impressed by the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco. We can’t comment on the Minneapolis  based MAS. You should put it to the Miami school to spell out the differences. They’d be happy to. Obvious differences are teaching staff and size. As with any ad school, look to the student work to speak volumes, along with their alumni’s feedback. The best school’s work also pops up at awards shows like the One Show. You can probably have your questions answered within the hour.
