BOOKMARKED
I created this spreadsheet when I started the application process last year. It covers 17 schools (those in the UE/E cluster) with stats such as average GMAT, age, and enrollment among others. The list is not ranked in any way; I just wanted to have all the information in one spot instead of having to refer to BW/Vault everytime. Stats are from latest information available on BW or school websites.

I hope to add the deadlines for 2009 season as they are published. I'll also update the excel when BW or the schools themselves publish stats for Class of 2008.

Let me know if you find any mistakes and/or have any suggestions. I hope it can be useful to those who are in the school selection process.

Cheers,
SV



Added Dosa's sheet containing the raw data from US News. You can play with the weights to come up with your ideal schools/rankings.

very nice sv! +5 kudos!

Just wondering, how come it says that Haas only interviews 48% of their admitted students? I remember it was near 100% when they announced it...

thanks for posting it! :)

Good catch, Kry. It is actually 98%. Corrected and updated.

dghazer - BW does not publish average GPA, so I'll see if I can pull it from the school websites.

Another suggestion to improve this further would be to put the # of applications received next to class size.

Done.

Also added columns for average GPA, interview type(invited/self initiated) and % of applicants interviewed. The interview percentages for some schools like H/W/S are not published, so I could use the anecdotal information we have based on info sessions and student chat.

Great ! Thanks much.

How about including rough numbers on ROI for these schools ? BW published an article on payback (link below and attached PDF just incase) but is for 2006 MBA rankings.

Just a note, (as per me), these ROI numbers are bit skewed due to "salary premium" numbers considered in calculation.

http://bwnt.businessweek.com/bschools/0 ... ayback.asp

I was not able to find information on ROI for 2007 Grad school rankings.

Though BW has information on Undergrad schools (please click on the Link - Table : Best return of investment")

Well I have a spreadsheet that I used when researching schools as well. I have updated it with the 2007 numbers. Feel free to play around with the "weights" for each of the factors that I have included and in fact, feel free to add more factors. These is my "rankings" so to speak :)
