If you did tell us in which one and how it was? Was it worth the cash? How do you rate your improvrment since you entered that school?

always depends on what you wanna do with your musical career. here in austria we have the oldest music-universities and conservatories. about 30 years ago the education there was over the top - but now i would not recommend it (at least not for guitarrists) - the problem is, that when you are done with it you are like a machine with a lil slot where you can insert a coin and chose any song - seriously - you´ll need ages to get back to your own style. especially in classical music - those university dudes are pure sight-reading players and every note is played perfectly. but sadly 90% of them cannot improvise nore write a song apart from the strict rules they have learned. its a great loss of individuality.

the GIT would be cool though.

Holiness is in right action and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves. What you decide to do every day makes you a good person... or not.
