Does it make any difference? Are you more or less likely to date her?

Well there's a few things to consider.
From what I've noticed, people (both guys and girls) who have high end degrees can be very condescending to those who have no degree or a lower end degree. They'll talk to others as if they don't have anything going for them regardless of how happy they are. They make the mistake of grouping people who choose to work in other fields that don't involve the education system with those people who sit at home in their mom's basement playing video games with no job/part time job in their 30's+.
Plus it can also depend on what the major is. If the person's going for liberal arts, women's studies, and so on they're gonna likely have a high end degree flipping burgers for the rest of their life. Some fields are good while others are not. I know a guy who is over 30 who is taking psychology and that's a degree that is pretty much required to be taken to the top. By the time he's done finishing all the years required to get that degree you then have to factor in the insane debt he'll be paying off and that's if he lands a job after. There's a ton of people who get a master's with no job to pay it off and that's a huge issue nowadays and only a portion of those cases involve people being unmotivated when it comes to the search. He also talks down on people who don't go to college when he's in his 30's and only has a part time job.
There are definitely guys who will automatically be intimidated but not admit it, especially if the woman's a high earner. Their ego will justify it with "she's a snob" and such without getting to know her. Then you have others who have legitimately been condescended by others and labeled unmotivated and talked to as if they were in high school still regardless of how happy they are with their jobs and so on. You also have some who jump the gun and will not take the time to consider her because many guys have noticed that the average woman is typically hypergamous. So they're just assuming she's not gonna be interested by default.2
