What do you feel is more prestigious, a top undergrad with a second tier graduate school or a second tier undergrad with a top tier grad school? I've noticed this recently with people I've spoken to. Guys going from HYP undergrad to state school for law degrees and state school kids getting a harvard MBA for example.
The essence of the question is really, whether you feel as if undergrad name > grad name in terms of prestige or grad name > undergrad name.
I have my own opinion, but hearing others thoughts might help a few of the hs/college kids on this forum out as I was one of the ones who bought into the whole college confidential bs of going to a much lower ranked cheaper undergrad and then going to a ivy grad school.
