US News might be useful to get the stats for any B-school, university in USA but surely it isn't smart to think school ZXY is better than ABC because it ranks higher in US News. Please look at stats, talk to alumni, people in corporate sector, academic sector to have a perception about any school. Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Wharton, Kellogs and many others are some of the best but surely they can't be ranked. Moreover, I would just like to inform you all that New York times had exposed US News of deliberately manipulating the rankings to lower, degrade the reputation of REED COLLEGE (one of the finest Arts college in the world, more popular because Steve Jobs dropped out of this college) because the college had refused to officially participate in the ranking process.
U.S. News & World Report will be launching a new and improved
edition of America's Best Graduate Schools on Friday, March 28.
This is as per folks in BW forums. Also a pre take on the rankings is as below :
8 ) Tuck
Any views on the rankings ?
