Like Ken, Im just a disgruntled old fool too. Believe me, The school you go to means very little. I went to a school that doesnt even register on any radar, but I can assure you that I work harder and am more effective then most people in any office that I ever worked. At school I was fortunate enough to learn under a former Louis Kahn associate and my ass was ripped to shreds on many an occasion. It made me stronger and more insightful. I see some of the interns that are in my office now that spend more time trying to figure out CAD then any analytical aspect of architecture and they go to suposedly good schools. It amazes me that these kids have somehow legitimised their ineptitude by having a drawing done on computer. I'm glad CAD was in its infancy when I was in school, I couldnt have been bothered with the conceptual stalemate that the computer can produce. (See Kens rip on thesis guy below) All in all it doesnt really matter where you go to school, the desire comes form within, I've never had a problem getting a job with my shitty degree, at interviews my employers always sense my intensity and I always get the job. I dont stay at a job longer then 1.5 years because I get bored and disgruntled, but more importantly I know I can get a new job not because of my degre but by the look in my eye. Do you have that look?
