Michigan State ---> Near Elite!? [#permalink] New post 02 Jan 2007, 09:56
I think Michigan State should be in the near elite category. Their rankings are great on BW and USNews. Are perceptions of the school low because of the name?

I wonder too!
I have applied to Michigan State Univ, attended their Exploration program and liked it.
Their Career Services Center has a very good record of placing students (above 95%) and the average salaries are on par with what graduates from some of the other top 30 schools get.

Michigan State is not far away from the Near Elite cluster. There is a group of about four or so schools that hover right by the Near Elite cluster-Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State, and Penn State.

When it comes to institutional reputation, Michigan State University is outclassed by such Near Elites parent universities as Washington University, Notre Dame, Georgetown, and Vanderbilt. For reputation in applied economics, Michigan State does not come anywhere near Rochester. When it comes to reputation for quantitative skills, it is not one the same level as Purdue.

Of course, any ranking is just a starting point when evaluating schools.
