Default Re: Are college rankings important?

It depends on what you want to do. More prestigious jobs, a very well can make a difference.

At most work places, they won't know specific rankings, but they will know if the college is well known and respected.

Another thing to consider is that a good college near where you plan on living (if you have a specific end goal location) may give you the inside track on a job as well. For example, in Oregon if you went to an Oregon school and the employer is aware of the programs, that could help.
