You are correct. My apologies Mr. Thompson.

I didn't say or imply anything like this. Please don't twist my words.

You are changing the question to one of "worth". I have not made
any comments about the difference in worth between the degrees
from different schools.
Untill now, the discussion has been about the source of your
degree making a difference in the hiring decission. I assert that
hiring managers care more about your experience than from
where you obtained your degree. Would you agree?
As for YOUR questions, I think you need to consider context. However,
all things being equal, I think the answers are obvious.
