Interesting Georgetown seems to be leading the ranks so far.
It is a great school and I think has the best location of all of them in terms of getting a job in the same city you went to school to (this is very helpful by the way as quite a few people would have gone to Georgetown undergrad or their parents/family members/etc). It is a big network of alums too and the name will open doors for you.

Is Emory considered Elite? How about Wake Forest?

Is there a simpler way to figure out in which I may fit in then to visit each of their websites ? I am feeling lost in the madness :(

Between Notre Dame and Indiana, I went with ND. Something about the ND name brand and prestigious aura :)

IMO Texas A&M Mays Business school deserves to be in this list.

I think they're all fairly strong regionally, but Georgetown probably has the strongest name recognition.

I agree that all the above mentioned schools are great regionally, but I don't think Georgetown is necessarily above everyone else. I think WashU, Notre Dame, and Vandy also have very strong reps as well, but they all seem to ride their reputations off other graduate programs more heavily besides business.

I chose other -- UW Madison. Love the specializations that they offer. Planning to apply for matriculation in fall 2013.

I'm biased towards Simon (Rochester) even though their first strength is Finance, and not Marketing. But Marketing and Consulting are getting stronger there too. :) So that's my vote.
