choosing a university

How much difference does it make in the end what university you go to? I am looking at going to a university that is considered not as good as some other schools. Although this university is really trying to get people to go there and the admission average is lower than some other places but I also don't have the best marks.

As long as it has the program you want to get into, you're good.

Undergrad doesn't really matter if you're going into science and will be pursuing a professional/grad degree after. Might matter more for engineering/nursing/business since you typically start working after receiving those degrees (and the school you go to will have a large impact on your networking opportunities).

The only time the name of you undergrad institution MIGHT matter is to get your foot in the door for an interview for your first job. After that experience trumps all.

I'm pretty sure the only time it matters is when you're applying for an entry-level job that thousands of people are applying for, in which HR people get lazy and will throw out any application that doesn't meet their simple standards (e.g. Ivy league alum, executive of some university club, stunning cover letter, etc...). You'll find this to possibly be the case with Wall/Bay Street jobs, jobs at Google... that's about all I can think of off the top of my head.
