Hello mafcMOTK, thanks for your question.
It’s a judgment call, of course, and I wanted to preface my answer by saying that I am not even sure that there is one definitive right answer that applies to every program.
That said, I think top programs would like to see some recognizable brands in your application, I would think they’d feel comfortable seeing some of those names. Of course, that doesn’t mean taking an in-person class at an unknown school is necessarily a bad choice – especially if you learn better (and get better grades) in person.
Best of luck!
