It's that time of the year. The 2012 US News ranking will come out in the Ides of March. Not that the ranking is worth anything, but it's always fun to place wagers on the potential winners and losers.

Getting a head start to the influx of discussion sure to arise in 4 days.

Will Cornell get back in the top 15?
Will Wharton catch up to Sloan?

I've got a better game. Since Tuck moved its decision up a week, will Fuqua follow suit?

Will McCombs hold on to it top 20 position? Is it possible that it inches into the top 15 club? Last year ranked at 16.

UNC should move up a few spots. Low placement rates hurt them last year, but from what I've gathered those rebounded nicely last year and their average GMAT is up.

Well, points to you jordanhendrix. Looks like Yale made it to the Top 10 after all.

http://www.usnews.com/education/best-gr ... ss-schools

To be fair it looks like they're considering the "Top 11" schools because of a tie, so I'm guessing the 10th school on the list is tied with the 11th.
