On a side note, I just completed my Bachelor's so I do advocate getting an education in addition to experience. They go hand-in-hand. And just FYI: I am not sure how long you have been using Dreamweaver and Photoshop, but it would take several years of using these programs on a daily, 8 hour-a-day, basis to become an expert at them. I use them daily and don't consider myself an expert. There is so much more to them than meets the eye. Look into a program that will teach in-depth on these (as well as CSS and HTML). Adobe offers great seminars and classes that are reasonable priced (not $6000!) and this looks good on a resume as well. And if at all possible, get into a company with an entry level position in web design, preferably with a staff of web people. You can learn much more by being hands on with other knowledgeable and skilled designers than in a classroom setting. Then, once you have experience get your employer to pay for those classes!
