Main Question or Discussion Point
I am wondering how important undergrad school reputation is for attending graduate school. I am currently attending my states flagship university but for personal reason am thinking of switching out to a lower tier University of X- City y school. How much would this hurt me, the reason I went to the flagship in the first place was for the research opportunities, how are my chances of getting undergrad research at this second tier school. My potential of getting into grad school pretty must rest of being able to do undergrad research at my home school as I have pretty much zero chance of an REU for various reasons.
