Generally not. However, it will make a difference in the jobs that are open to you – many employers (especially corporations) recruit from only a few schools and top schools have much better connections than less well-regarded regional or local schools. But most places will pay two people with the same degree and the same experience the same amount regardless of where they attended school.

    It can make a difference in being hired, depending on the field. The medical field is rather snobbish for some jobs, like for physician. It definitely makes a difference in being hired if you went to Harvard Med compared to one of the foreign medical schools, or even one of the top public med schools. (Top medical schools admit from about 1% to 3.5% of applicants, so some students end up in foreign medical schools or they won’t be able to go.) For an RN, it doesn’t matter as much as there are so few college nursing programs now compared to in the past, so much so that foreign nurses can get work visas to work here, which most other professionals cannot.

    Basically, the higher up on the ladder the job is, the more important the college is. My dh is a partner at a biglaw firm and he went to a top Ivy, and that still impresses his peers, many years since graduation. It’s kind of funny.

    But for the majority of jobs, it won’t make that much of a difference as long as you attend a legit college.

    Good luck!
