To get elected for a top political position in the state or nation.....?

<p>Do you have to go to a good an ivy or private college? Or can you go to a state school, like the University of Kentucky? Does it matter???</p>

<p>Why don't you query the biographies of politicians in your locality and state? </p>

<p>Plus, i think you already know the answer.</p>

<p>the representatives in my state have gone to like state went a school that everyone in my high school goes to...its basically the 13th grade...but then again I live in eastern ky. lol</p>

<p>No, you don't have to. Nixon went to Whittier College, LBJ went to some small college in Texas, and there are probably more examples if you look. It is not a prerequisite whatsoever.</p>
