I’ve always thought it mattered for business or law majors.
Honestly, no. Many pre-med students attend the school that gives them the most financial aid because they don't want to be in debt already before med school. For pre-med, the main thing that matters is your MCAT score, which will most likely be higher if you go to a more prestigious school, but many small private schools that aren't as prestigious still produce students with consistently high MCAT scores. Smaller less prestigious private schools often have additional resources for their pre-med students, and also give more scholarships and financial aid.
I believe the same thing goes for law, as it's the LSAT score that matters most, but for business your undergrad school matters because there isn't any big exam you take to be accepted into a higher-level business program.
I think studying in an ivy league and top tier colleges always is beneficial because the career offerers would know that you have studied in a highly selective school and they accept you, which is great for you. I think to get accepted to a medical school a prestigious pre med school would look good and your MCAT score is very important too. Good luck!
