Just wondering what your opinions are...
How much weight does the name of a school carry, like berkeley, mit cornell etc, over a stateschool, when it comes down to internship finding, job hunting, career advancement etc?
From what I have heard, for and against:
not that important, somewhat important
you should go to a school in a city/area where you like to work later
nameschool is important if you want to continue in academia
planning is not something you can learn in a library, the city it's in is crucial
name more important if you want to work overseas
your thoughts? from students or seasoned professionals
