If you are looking at straight self-defense I would go with Krav Maga. I have heard nothing but great things about it and apparently it's very effective. People will probably bitch and complain and say, "anyone can kick a guy in the balls and gouge eyes!!! hahah." **** them. If anyone can do that then Krav Maga will teach you how to do it more effective than the average person. Some of the guys I train with also train in KM and swear that it's the best self-defense in the street. I want to train in it when I get some extra cash. Right now I'm in love with MT and BJJ.
