Are grad schools more apt to reject you if you attend State?

<p>Say if I wanted to get into UC LA after attending San Francisco State for their History Graduate Department, are they willing to decline to accept me even with a 3.7-4.0 GPA for those four years?</p>

<p>That's certainly a strong enough GPA to merit consideration anywhere, but I think for graduate school your writing sample, recommendations, statement of intent, possibly GRE, and GPA in the major will all be more important than overall GPA. It is probably true that the less prestigious the undergraduate school, the higher the GPA they'll want to see coming out of it, but if you're in the 3.7 and up range, you should be fine.</p>

<p>true.. also depends on what the average GPA was etc. but thats a pretty damn good GPA....</p>
