Cool, just asking b/c there's probably a perf/year end bonus in addition to the signing bonus, which is probably a 1 time thing.

Wonder if many folks got tuition/loan help too.

There are a bunch of ties. How many #25 schools are there? Wow!

Surprised that MIT fell into a 3 way tie for 4th place with K and B. W still can't crack the H & S stronghold. interesting.


----------------------------

I don't understand why you are surprised to see MIT getting knocked down a rank for a three way tie at #4 with K and B. MIT = W at #3 didn't make sense to begin with... See BW, Forbes ranking, MIT is behind K and B. I would say the clear top 5 is H,S,W,B,K.....

Does anyone have any reaction to the student review rankings on gradutateprograms(dot)com? Interesting to see that Rice (Jones Graduate School of Business was #1).

nope...

Quote:
Want to know which b-schools rate highest among current and recent students? Graduate Programs, the online guide to graduate schools for prospective graduate students, today released its rankings of the Top 25 Business School programs according to student ratings and reviews posted on Graduateprograms.com. The rankings are solely based on the surveys based on a 10 star system (with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the best) and verbatim answers submitted by 4,500 students from more than 700 business schools across the U.S



So... 4500 students from over 700 schools... sooo, a sample size of an average of 6 students from each school... That is in no way statistically significant enough to base an entire ranking off of...

good point. All the rankings should be taken with a grain of salt, but it's interesting to hear what the students have to say about their business school.

agreed, student feedback is a great resource... but this ranking needs to be taken with more than a grain of salt... you shouldn't bother looking at this ranking at all.

Feel free to look at student feedback though, the more first hand perspectives on a program the better
