A lot of schools make a big deal out of alumni networking. I was wondering as a junior still in the college selection process, if alumni networking is really a valuable resource. Do alumni really help graduates in their fields? Or is the alumni network just a marketing point that private schools love to tout. I would love responses from those who have graduated and can weigh in on the value of alumni. I am especially interested in the alumni networks of Notre Dame, LMU, USC, and Boston College, but any and all responses would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance
