Right, but it's still discouraging to be forever branded a "2nd tier engineer/human/etc" because of where I went to school (unless I get into a good grad school).

5 years into your career no-one normal cares where you went to school.

This is very specifically the case in Silicon Valley, the insular center of the world, and not the case elsewhere. Most companies I've interviewed at couldn't care less about where I went to school as long as I could build their stuff.
