Good Morning,

I had a general question about how undergrad schools outside of the top tier/ivy are ranked/evaluated when you guys do your evaluations. I always see Middle-tier, or Midwest Ivy, or things of that nature and what does that really mean.

Specifically I went to a small military college(The Citadel) and it is consistently ranked one of the top schools of the south(US News and World Report) however I have no idea if this would make it a second tier, third tier, or whatever tier college in the eyes of adcoms. I was wondering if i could get some clarification on that.

Thanks,

AK

I don’t know what tier it would be considered, but I believe it would be second-tier. However, I suggest that you not worry about that. It’s a very reputable program, and that’s what matters. Your GPA there and your GMAT are what the adcoms will focus on, and they don’t obsess over these levels and tiers. Rather, they will view your application holistically. So take steps to prepare your best application thoughtfully; that's what you should focus on.
