Default Magical Styles

I'm wondering how many are using magical styles in their games. I'm doing a bit of retooling of an existing game world, and this seems like a good method for making magic seem less "vanilla." It also makes sense insofar as I was accomplishing something similar by having existing guilds, circles, etc., of wizards. Using the magical schools gives benefits rather than acting simply as social restrictions. In other words, this gives me a carrot to go with my stick (and makes the guilds look less like stumbling blocks than organizations they'd like to join, even if there ARE dues).

What is your experience with this in games? Especially grafting them on to existing games (though I won't be doing that, it'd be nice to know).
Seven Kingdoms, MH (as yet unnamed), and my "pick-up" DF game war stories, characters, and other ruminations can be found here.
