Looking for insight on graduate programs in Interaction Design

I have recently been looking into the possibility of interaction design as a career choice, and I was wondering what sort of graduate school programs would be open to me. I have been perusing the discussion boards, but it seems as though there aren't very many conversations about this in the past couple of years about it so I was wanting to get an updated perspective.

Does it make sense for me to go back to school for Cognitive Psychology?

I majored in Industrial Design and HCI but am interested in Cognitive Psychology, but after reading Don Norman's article about the flaw in design education, I think what he says makes sense in that a lot of designers end up as pixel pushers because they don't really know much about people and how they behave to be designing for them, so they end up focusing on visuals only, which further causes companies to think designers are there to make things "pretty" rather than solve problems.

iSchool at Drexel (online) vs. Pratt SILS

I currently work as a visual designer (print and web) with some front-end development skills. I want to transition into interaction design. I'm looking at going to graduate school, but part-time. Does anyone know about the programs at Pratt SILS or the iSchool at Drexel's online program? i would rather be in a classroom environment interacting with students than doing an online program, but the iSchool at Dexel is ranked in the top ten. Are there any other part-time programs worth looking at in NYC? Thanks!

Scholarships/Grants for Grad School

I'm in the process of applying for grad school, looking to learn about and study the usability of public transit systems. This is cross-disciplinary, but a big component of it is masters-level training in UX/Interaction Design. Would anyone happen to know of good scholarships/grants to chase for work in this area?

in Design Management. The programs were years in the making and are
headed up by myself, Michael Eckersley and Richard Branham, with other
strong contributing faculty. More on Richard and myself below.
