#AskJeremy: Does my undergraduate school choice matter?
See below for the question and below that for my video response.
When applying for grad schools/companies after undergrad, are there any differences between being a graduate from Berkeley or LA? How do grad schools weigh a GPA from schools with slightly different prestige/reputation. Specific to Berkeley and LA, how would careers/grad schools weigh a student with the same major and a similar transcript accordingly? Any advice you have would be helpful. Thank you.
Structure of my response
1. Education Matters today more than ever in today’s global, information-based economy.
2. Schools: People choose schools for various reasons.
3. Departments: Different departments will give you different experiences.
4. Grades: Grad schools will put grades in context
