Undergraduate and Graduate Degree From Same School?

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think about obtaining your undergraduate degree and a graduate degree from the same programs? Is it heavily frowned upon or do you think that this idea is a bit outdated?

My PI told me during my application process that is was better to have a diverse list of schools that you attended, rather than having all your degrees coming from the same school. It shows that you have the ability to adapt and succeed in different environments. He also mentioned that somebody getting all their degrees from one place isn't bad, but it could raise some flags.

Can't answer this question directly, but I will say, I personally did my undergraduate and masters degree at the same university, and am doing my Ph.D somewhere else. It's been great having the opportunity to explore another college and break out of my comfort zone.
