Default Re: Are college rankings important?

It certainly can be. I know several people who got their prestigious jobs due, in part, to their school. Its not the only thing to consider, but people do pay attention to them. For example, UofM has been a top anthropology PhD program for decades. Go look at any sizable anth program and at least one faculty will be from UM. It certainly plays a role.
