Significance of the undergraduate university you join for physics

  1. Aug 31, 2012 #1
    How important do you think is the "reputation" of the college that one joins after high school, especially for physics ?

    I've seen a lot of "fools" going to big name colleges , which charge exorbitant fees ,and getting those top jobs, whereas the talented and hard working from relatively modest universities rarely end up there. But I've observed it only in the case of engineering.
    Is it similar in case of physics? And is there a way to go to a top grad school(which I think is important)without having gone to a highly reputed undergrad one ?
