This ranking seems consistent with previous ranks and the cluster system.

Ultra elites- All present in 1-7 with the exception of Columbia (10).

Elites- All present in 8-16 with the exception of Michigan (5) and Yale (19). BusinessWeek traditionally favors Michigan and disfavors Yale so this is not much of a surprise.

Transelites- All bunched in the high teens to low 20s with Carnegie Mellon (16) and Emory (23) as bookends

Near Elites- Standard BW ranking with Indiana on top and the usual suspects rounding out the list.

Internationls- As usual, BW provides a ranking of intl. programs that could best be described as a bit odd. None of the TCE schools appear in the top 3 which is dominated by Canadian schools. As many GMATClubbers know, I am a proponent of Canadian MBA programs but it is hard to believe that all three are better than all of the TCE programs including INSEAD and LBS.

I would look at it this way: oh god, thanks, my school is now in top 3! :-D actually top 2!

In a given year, I dont think someone's chance to get into top 10 changes a lot.
For example, from my perspective i dont care where Chicago will stand in the ranking(no offence to those considering it), whether #1 or #10, if I will have an offer from Stanford, I will definately take it, whether it ranks #1 or #10...

Just because a school receives a few hundred more applications, it wont became competitive in real sense. Of course, there will always be people who apply to a particular school just for the ranking sake, but adcoms are good at spotting it and showing you the door
