Question by blowinkilla: How big of a difference does the university you attend make on the pay of your job?
I live in Houston, TX, and I’m still not sure of what university I want to attend after my second year of college. Theres the University of Houston, Texas State, Texas A&M, and a few others I’m thinking about. My GPA is 3.7 and I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to attend any college desired, but would the college attended make a difference on the pay in the future–even if the same exact degree is offered somewhere else? Any information whatsoever will be greatly appreciated.

Go to a big name school is my only advice. Because when your at career fairs and going on interviews during your last year of school. The name you drop might be the only thing the recruiter or HR person remembers.
At my job the recruiters, HR person, new employee training coordinator and my supervisor are all graduates from my alumni mater. So that was an added bonus that pushed my career I fully believe.
