Do I really need to go to a big name school for investment banking?

As the title says, I'm curious as to whether or not big name schools like Ann Arbor, DUKE, NYU, etc. are necessary to get into front office investment banking. Just to be clear, I am able to get into these schools, it's the debt that comes with them that scares me. What schools did you guys go to? And are there any real advantages to going to the targets?
