University rank/stature - How much does it affect one’s career post-Ph.D?
I graduated with a Bacholars from a top university and did quite well, however, I was recommended to a professor in an unknown (read as not highly ranked) university for a PhD program. I had certainly not heard of the university before, and I don't believe that it has much of a reputation. It is not a new university by any means (established 1800s).
Is a degree from such an University likely to add value to me? Also, how do I know whether this is a step in the right direction (before I take it)?
Edit: I am considering it because the research that is performed by the professor there interests me.
