Medical and legal industries, and I imagine maybe to a lesser degree Engineering, are probably the only big-brand job titles where school matters.
If a job pays less than $100k/year I don't think anyone's going to scoff at a local school. I can't imagine throwing $120k+ into something like "Liberal Arts" or "English" or "Computer Science" or any other 'practical' education. That's just asking for an ass-whooping.
My wife has a Bachelor's from Colorado State, which I think if you're not a local can be $$$ - and she's gotten zero mileage from being an English Major with a focus on Gothic Literature. Accounting, insurance loss control, and training are the places she's landed since college.
I went for an Associates in Computer Science at a community college and landed in IT, IT, and IT for over a decade now. Now I'm going back to a local school to get a Bachelor's in Business Admin so I can try and leverage that up to IT Director somewhere. The Associates cost me a staggering $9,000 or so, which I was able to pay as I went part-time over 3.5 years.
