Is it worth 30 bucks?

I am using it and it is pretty much worth it. There are a lot of Stuff incl essays for different schools, Adcom interviews, School tours and all sorts of stuff.
I think for 29.99, it is very reasonable .......just think you spent 30 bucks at a
a very good italian restaurant :-)

I too have found it very useful. However, I have completed my subscription from last year and am thinking about subscribing again. The only thing that irritates me is that the rankings and much of the statistics are 2 years old.

I know what I'll be doing next Thursday. It'll be interesting to see how much they move.

I'm interested to see how their rankings differ from the US News Rankings and with my own perceptions. The one that really catches my attention is Haas. BW currently has them at 17 and has never ranked them higher than 13 (US News has Haas at 7 and I think they should be in the top 10). The other big discrepency is with Cornell, BW #7 and US News #16t.

Their ranking of the ultra-elites make for good conversation, but it really doesn't make any difference.
