There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
RSM is quite clearly a third-rate programme that looks set to fall dramatically in the rankings in the coming years. I would not be surprised if the MBA programme was shut down. I hear nothing but negative comments from alumni and they say such things as "RSM ruined my life." From what I understand, the management team is completely incompetent and the programme has gone down hill for at least half a dozen years. The statistics bear this out. According to RSM's own statistics (see the employment report on its site) the number of students even being offered a job by graduation decreased from 81% in 2010 to 52.7% in 2011. Given that RSM holds graduation 3 months after classes end, instead of right after classes end like every other school I'm aware of, this means that RSM students can expect to only have a 50/50 chance of even being offered a job, let alone accepting a good offer, 3 months after classes end. For top schools in the US and Europe the job acceptance rate is 90%+ in most schools, with the lower end being 80%+. And according to RSM's statistics, graduates of RSM now make less than $80k on average. This is far below what top schools report and is only $10k to $15k more than what undergraduates make coming out of bachelor's programmes at business schools.
@emediawonk, you created your profile only minutes before putting up a post to trash RSM - which, by the way, is copypasta from Find-MBA http://www.find-mba.com/board/17257/last/#last. Again, there's only one post from you there, and you created your profile for *that* site only yesterday. In addition, this sounds suspiciously like the postings from RSMMBAGrad (http://gmatclub.com/forum/members/member-91800.html) and MBAGuru (http://www.find-mba.com/about/mbaguru) - posters that look like they created their profiles just to sling mud at RSM (and, if you'll notice, the talking points that MBAGuru uses match up almost perfectly). Do you have something against RSM personally?
Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).
