undergrad - does it factor in at all?

mallow55:
if you went to an ivy league undergrad (i went to an HYP), does it help even a teensy weensy bit when firms look at your resume? 

atomic40:
I can not imagine it hurts having an Ivy League school on your resume.  Some firms even ask for undergrad transcripts.

Slumdog Lovebutton:
I think it's helped me a little bit.  i.e., I've gotten a bit of a bump and a second look from places, and firms tend to think I'm more impressive because of it.  I don't think an Ivy undergrad would cancel out the effect of having mediocre grades, though.

If you went to Harvard undergrad, but are at Cooley law school, nobody cares....

I don't think that's quite what the OP is asking.

I think that undergrad helps if the interviewer happened to go to the same school or something.  I don't think it would matter all that much to be HYP in general though.

Also, OP: HYSCC?  Blatant CLS/Chicago trolling.
