Seattle Design Schools?

Can anyone help decor8 reader Helen from Seattle, Washington?

She writes, "Hi Holly, I am a marketing professional looking to go back to school and change my career path. I live in Seattle and I'm looking into evening interior design programs. So far I have talked to Seattle Art Institute and I will be talking to International Academy of Design. Since you are in the field, I would like to get your opinion and perspective on the above schools. Do they have a good reputation? Will companies hire based on the above name recognition or lack there of? Anything you could provide or suggest would be greatly appreciated. Since I do work full time, I am somewhat limited to just evening programs in the Seattle area."

Sorry Helen, I'm not too savvy when it comes to design schools on the west coast, can anyone provide Helen with some direction?

Thanks Helen for writing in!
