Should I go to Portfolio School?

This is probably the question I get asked the most.

You should.

Or you shouldn't.

It's not my decision to make.

What you need to do is have a portfolio.

You need to have something showing your craftmanship as a writer/art director/graphic designer, your style and problem-solving skills and evidence of your understanding of how advertising works.

However you get to that point is up to you.

My only advice is to be amazing. 

Here's some reading as you weigh it out. If this doesn't help, try Rock, Paper, Scissors. (Remember, rock always wins. Always.)
