Confused about going back to school?

I am a 21 year old art school drop out who wishes to go back to school for something more obtainable. Computer Science/ Information Tech. I decided to leave art school after finding out that the school/chain was being sued by the government and in an attempt to comply they downsized the school by firing over half the staff and teachers, gave up important contracts with programs like Gnome and Zbrush, giving up other important resources that are vital to the school, took my scholarship they issued me that I won in high school. I will have been out of school a whole year come January but I would like to go back. My problem simplified is this. I am already $17,000 in debt and more then likely would have to take out more loans just to get back to school because I am not currently aware of any other ways to get funding to due to my age and the fact I've been out high school going on 3 years now. I would love to get an education in something I do enjoy and never seems to have a lack of jobs for but I worry about only getting my self into more of a debt that I can never pay off even with a successful career. Here's my questions: Is school worth dropping back into further debt in this economy (look for personal opinions)? Are there any financial options for some who is now 21 and almost three years out of high school? Are there any schools you would recommend me take a look for the Computer Science/IT (I live in Atlanta,Ga by the way)? Would having current unpaid student loan debt prevent me from going back to school? Sorry I am all over the place with questions and explanations, I am just having trouble wording this without sounding whiny and pitiful.
