How influential is a "name brand" college?

A "name-brand" school can play a part in the connections you develop. The name of your school will open doors for you, and a strong network of alums in high places will give you opportunities that those from non-brand name schools might not get exposure to. However, if you don't have a name-brand school on your résumé, don't worry. Your career success is more about your drive, resiliency, and most importantly a track record of results. If you are a high achiever, you will get new and exciting opportunities, no matter what college calls you an alum.
