Response to wilt the stilt (Reply #30)

31. That's a fallacy...No degrees are seen as better depending on university...

Yeah, the Ivys have a *slight* bump in prestige and clout, but it isn't anywhere near as much as you'd think...

I know it's difficult to believe (and I didn't when I was younger)...But trust me, the real world job market gives less than a shit about which college name is splayed across your diploma...They care about skills, experiences, and accomplishments...Small school or big school; places with the highest admission standards in the world versus places where pretty much anyone gets in -- If you show high achievement and ambition you'll be able to go far...

I speak from personal experience -- If you *really* want to go to UGA because of a certain program or because you love the atmosphere, or because you've always wanted to be a bulldog ever since childhood, then more power to you...If you want to attend UGA *only* because you believe a degree from there carries more weight than a similar one from Georgia State, then I suggest you re-evaluate your priorities...
