Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Pretty interesting to see the elite schools dominating the top 10 for employment. There are a decent amount of other schools that are surprises. I'm surprised Michigan State didn't make the list. Their employment rate is pretty high.
Interesting list. It's not too surprising that the top ranked schools in the biggest metro areas seem to do the best.
I think the biggest surprise was that UNC was not among the top 50. I think that generally, it's considered just behind the elites in the 15-20 range. Even NC State made the top 50, but UNC didn't. Shocker.
Did anyone notice that Columbia's average bonus was $61k+, compared with $20-30k for most other top schools? The joys of working in NY I guess.
I like this list vs the other more popular ones. I think to decide on a school, we need to use the information provided by sources like BW, FT, Economist etc and create out own list based on the attributes that matter to us the most. For me 'recuiter rating' I think is the most important attribute vs things like closer to a big town/city.
The fact that a school was No 1 in BW or FT doesnt really mean anything for me.
I got a good laugh at North Carolina State. They have like 10 full time students. I wondered how they ended up on the list. They must be counting the part timers. That's really not fair since they already have jobs.
None of the full-time salaries seemed to correlate with what the schools had reported (at least for the schools I applied to and researched). Seemed to be a list they did a quick poll for and then just threw together with some salary stats from who knows where? Maybe they were including PT students as well which would drag down some schools most likely.
To choose the 50 Best Business Schools for Getting Hired, Fortune and its partner QS analyze information from QS's TopMBA Scorecard, which includes data on 111 top accredited U.S. business schools. TopMBA Scorecard is an online tool designed to help students search MBA programs to find the best one for them. For this list, schools are ranked based equally on their reputation with recruiters and on their strength of career placement, based on a search by a student looking to study in a full-time MBA program in the United States.
"Note: Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was incorrectly listed in the 2006 QS recruiter survey and thus does not appear in this year's rankings. The school will be included in next year's survey. We regret the error."
It was a mistake. CNN has since recognized the errors in survey/rankings and has removed the article from it's site. They said the two schools most larely influenced by the errors were UNC and Boston U. They had a independent company conduct and produce the rankings. Oh well, it was interesting while it was around.
