Can any IxD grads from SVA or Parsons help me out?

I am an international student who will be applying to both the School of Visual Arts Interaction Design and Parson's Design & Technology MFA programs on a Fulbright scholarship. I would really appreciate any views and opinions on both programs...since I live abroad, it's really hard to tell what the programs are like apart from the information they put on their websites. How well ranked and known are both programs in the field of interaction design? How are they different? What about the schools themselves? What are their approaches to design? Would you recommend one over the other? Do any of these programs teach interaction design from a more cognitive science\hci, research and theory oriented approach, or is it just visual design and coding?
I have a BDes in Communication Design, have been working in interface design for the past 2 years, and now want to go back to school.
