I remember when i first started my college career, I felt because I didn’t attend some Nationally recognized College that perhaps my degree didn’t mean as much. Now that I am a few years into this journey I see how this assumption was really foolish. Over the years I realize it isnt where you graduate from but what you do with the knowledge that has been imparted upon you. I also spoken with a few professors that say some of the bigger name schools have poorer standards than institutions like CUNY/SUNY. I will never forget my Adv Tech English Professor who got her PHD from NYU pretty much say that asides from the name of the school there isn’t anything special about it. This article make 5 fine points as to why this idea might well be based on some truth.
