I've been told conflicting things by many people in higher places than my own. Some say its detrimental to get a BS and MS from the same school when looking for a job. Others say that it really doesn't matter. So my question is why would it hurt me to stay/how could it help me to move? FYI: Graduating with BS in Mechanical and Aeronautical Science and Engineering from UCDavis Planning for a MS in Mechanical.
