Comment Undergrad doesn't matter (Score 1) 391 391

If you're looking at a career that requires graduate school (scientist), ungraduate schools don't matter as much as a good grad program. My wife went to a state school, got good grades and test scores and was accepted to Stanford and Harvard for grad school. When she completed her PhD, postdoc positions cared about the quality of the grad school. When she applied for facuilty positions, nobody asked about undergrad but wanted to know where she got her PhD and where she did her postdoc work.
