    What are the job prospects in your opinion for graduates of a school you never knew existed as compared to a respectable institution, even though the same programs of study are accredited by the same company.

    If you present yourself well on paper, it becomes more about how you present yourself well in person. Also, if the person doing the hiring is conversant with research in the field, they may know more places than you think.

    Most interviewers will look at your GPA and course listing, and then put it aside and just ask questions to see what you know. If it's clear you know stuff, you'll get the job. It doesn't really matter where you went to school.
