I went to an MFA program and it was the best years of my life. The best decision. Now I'm seriously thinking of pursuing a PhD in Art!
You must follow your passion. If art making is your passion and getting an MFA is too....DO IT!
You should figure out which medium you want to work in and then go from there. If you are not sure about the medium or don't want to pinpoint one medium find a school where they have an interdisciplinary program.
Also look at the national rating of each school and again look at the medium you want to work in. If i.e. you want to become a painter find a school that produces great painters
