College for web design?

Never mind that. Do you think it would be a good idea to spend 1-4 years in college for web design or just go in freelance and give them a great portfolio to look at?

Oh, and I decided against college. It took me less than 6 months to learn most of the PHP I know and I learned ALL of it for free online. So yea, no college for me

I know VB.NET, HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, MSSQL and others but definately have room to learn more.
I asked my employeer if I would benefit from going to school to learn more programming but he said I've already gone past what they would of taught me. So it would be a waste of money. I would like to goto school for graphics (ie Illustrator and Photoshop) to me there are far too many tutorials and not enough about basics that I want to learn
I use PHPFreaks.com as my classroom for learning PHP. After I bought 2 books on PHP and MySQL and mastered thoughs I stumbled upon this website and use it every day to learn new things or to tweak things I've already learnt but want to improve on.
I learnt VB.net from scratch. I learnt VB6 too and had to convert my projects to VB.net because of the applications they were used with. I used google as much as I could as well as www.xtremevbtalk.com to ask questions and look up things.
I do wish I went to school though. Mainly because if I ever leave my current employeer, I have no 'Piece of Paper' to prove to other companies what I know. Most of them out there require some sort of Certificate or Diplomia. Nether of which I have except for the High-school stuff and my Electrician's Ticket
