Will undergrad transfer hurt choices of Grad School?

  1. Nov 13, 2012 #1
    I'm currently a returning undergrad studying Physics at Penn State but I'm thinking about transferring to a smaller state school (Kutztown). I still have to take 2 years of my major classes to finish. My reason for transferring is to save money. Will graduating from a smaller/less known school give me similar chances at getting into grad school as graduating from Penn State?

    The problem is not size or reputation. The question is the quality of the faculty and the range and quality of the courses you can take.
