@ivyctor2010 Thanks... As of now I need to decide between ISB and Tepper. Both has it's own advantages but picking one is a tough call..
I understand it can be a tough call. But I can help you get started. First of all divide your analysis in 4 parts as below:

1) Ranking - Take an average of FT, US News and any other pertinent ranking
2) Avg post-MBA Salary - What was average salary the last year
3) Placement-function - What % of jobs in your function did the school have last year
4) (COA-Scholarship) - COA means total cost of attendance, so COA subtracted by schol.

You may wish to add any other factors which are important to you.

A. Now rate/score both the schools ISB and Tepper on above 4 parameters.
B. You also need to rate the parameters on their importance for you and assign each parameter a weight.
C. Now you need to calculate the weighted score for each of the school. (you will need to normalize the scores i.e. bring them to a certain level for example salaries may be in 10000s but rankings are below 100)

Once you get the weighted score for each of them you will have a simple comparison in front of you.

While this exercise will just throw up two numbers to you and by itself is not a sufficient criteria to decide it will give you a way to organize your decision process. Such analysis may take in 10s of factors and go into much more complexity but this simplistic analysis will atleast get you started and prevent you from making rumor based or emotional decisions. As they say "The moment you toss the coin, and the coin is in the air, you already know the answer."
