When some pretentious ass says to me "I go to school in Boston; well, not really in Boston, but near Boston," I always say, "Oh! Do you like Tufts?"
What would you rather he say? That he goes to Harvard? Would you judge him as any less of a pretentious ass?
Yes. If you go to Harvard, and someone asks you where you go to school, answering "Harvard" is not pretentious at all.
