The ivy league name might open a door or two that otherwise might not be available, but what matters when you get out of school is how you can contribute to the firm. In the vast majority of firms this means can you turn out a coherent set of working drawings, how fast can you do it and how much supervision will you need. Your design ability may impress a potential employer - but your design ability is really of little value in a firm where everybody went to architecture school, everybody knows how to design, everybody has been doing it a lot longer than you, and they also have the know-how to see their work implemented and built.
Bottom line - someone with a degree plus good technical knowlege and skills trumps someone with an Ivy league degree every day of the week.
