Does anyone feel that the so called "academic rigor" at top b-schools is a bit overrated? I have attended first and second year classes at 5-6 of the top 10 schools and frankly the level of education was shockingly poor. Initially, I thought it might have been just one bad class. But again and again, I felt the students weren't really smart and the professors had to spoon feed common sense. There were maybe 2-3 smart kids in every class who would lead conversations and end up answering the professor's questions. The others would merely participate for the heck of it (or grades?!) but add no value to any discussion. And I am talking about simple things that anyone who reads any decent newspaper or magazine would be able to comprehend.
Sounds a lot like undergrad. Maybe they were a little burnt out from just finishing finals?
