I am not applying to William and Mary for business school because I'm applying to PT programs near Washington and W&M is 200 miles from my house. I did go to college here though.

William and Mary is a public research university in Virginia and is a Top 10 public university overall at least. For college, the students are as good as those at the University of Virginia, and many W&M'ers would like to say they're better and I'm one of them but I digress.

W&M's best graduate school by far is the Law School, and the Education School is also a 1st tier program. The Business School recently was named after the Legg Mason guy (now it likes to be called Mason - not to be confused with George Mason University) and it got a brand spanking new facility. When I was in college, fellow undergrad students, including those in the business school (I wasn't a business major) gave the impression that the graduate business school was the university's weak link, but I always saw that the MBA program was ranked decently in Forbes or Financial Times, etc. then (seven, eight years ago).

W&M is ranked in the Top 100 on US News for the MBA, but it is in the Top 50 in other publications if not even Top 40, but this is me looking at the rankings after the new business building opened.

How do you all view the program at W&M, and how it compares with other business schools in the region not named UVA, like those at George Mason SOM, Richmond and Virginia Tech which also have graduate b school programs? The GMAT numbers are in line with these programs, but that doesn't give a whole picture obviously. From this, I guess it's on par with them and possibly better, but I wanted outside perspective on what you all thought of the College of William and Mary's business school.
