A what if scenario

<p>Im going to Fordham this Fall and let's say some other kid is going to Duke/Brown/Columbia/etc. Lets say a decade later we are both applying for the same job and we both graduated from the same grad school. Now let's say I do better than that person going to Brown or w/e as an undergrad and as a grad. Who will be given preference for the position? The funny thing is that there are several kids who I know are going to ivies and my gpa and sat were higher than their's, go figure....</p>

<p>So basically, you're asking if superior performance at UG1 (which is less prestigious than UG2) and G will look better than inferior performance at UG2 and G? Do I have this right?</p>

<p>Absolutely. Employers care a lot more about high performance in college and, particularly, grad school than in high school.</p>

<p>School attended will not matter a decade down the road. It will be all about what you have shown you can do on the job.</p>

<p>hmm good point but I'm guessing that schools matter in determining your salary, no?</p>

<p>A lot of it depends on the company/business and employer.</p>
