By | October 26, 2015

do i have to be in a prestigious university in my undergraduate studies in order to have a chance to be admitted at one of those graduate universities?
i’lm an undergraduate student still didnt begin my studies (my senior year in highschool)wiill be in oregon state university engineering and i wanna prepare my self from my first year in order to get a master degree later at one of the top universities
but does being admitted at those universities depend on which university you came from? since i’ll be in an average university

    no, not at all
    you just have to do good in your undergrads
    but if youre planning on going to these ivys for grad school, you shouldn’t go to like community colleges, or a real bad school
    OSU is legit, and if you excel at an average university, along with extracurrilurs and good prof. letters, you should have a good chance in getting in to one of those more “prestigioius” universities

    not necessarily
    you jut need to do very well as an undergrad

    Here’s are the statistics for the Yale Law School class of 2011:

    Most of their students — but not all — come from top tier universities. It might be easier to get into a top engineering program than a top law program, but chances are they’ll only take one student from your class, so you have to be that top student.
