Hello GMAT Club,

We have revamped this topic: Created separate tables part time, Executive mba, and international bschools, Introduced some cool new stats/comparions such as Salary to Debt ratios at US schools, Most competitive schools in T10/20/50, etc. Tell us what you feel about the new structure, anything we can include in the comparison, etc.

Hi Narenn,

This is really nice. Have never seen anything similar to this on internet. Was just inquisitive what is indebtness and how you are calculating it. Whatg I have observed higher ranked schools have higher tution fees and hence the overall expenses. But in this table indebtness of Stanford is much less than Fuqua for eg. Are you subtracting the internship cost or is there anything else?

Cost of attendance in most of the top 15 schools is in excess of \$ 200K. How for most of the schools the indebtness is so less?

Hi bb / Narenn,

Just inquisitive what exactly is the acceptance rate. Is it class size/no of applicants or class size/no of candidates interviewed?

In case of Fuqua class size is 430+ and no of applicants is 3400+. This will be acceptance rate of around 11%. Not sure how does it reach 22%. Also as per this table no of applicants to Kellogg will come out to be 2390.

Will help if you can suggest how this is calculated. Thanks.

Happy to help. Here is how it is possible: not everyone Fuqua Admits goes to Fuqua. Thus they have to admit a lot more than 430 people to get 430 people to matriculate. This is called "Yield" - seems it is around 50% at Fuqua based on your numbers.

Good day GoodGuy!

Firstly, We have not calculated these Avg indebtedness figures. We took them from US News rankings. IMO, indebtedness refers to the amount of money an average student of a particular bschool borrows to meet his/her MBA expenses at that school. US News is not clear on whether these figures include only the official borrowings i.e. loans or it considers unofficial borrowings as well i.e. Borrowings from relatives or from sources other than banks, etc.

Indebtedness of a bschool could be higher or lower based on how much students of that school rely on borrowings. e.g. Stanford's indebtedness is lower than that of Fuqua probably because greater part of the bschool funding of Stanford students come from personal savings and/or scholarships.

Thanks Narenn. In that case there is nothing much anyone can do about it. It depends on the economic condition of the coming batch and hence can swing dramatically. The important figure here is the post MBA salary figure. Nevertheless, an interesting thing to look at.

Hi carloslopezs94,

Yes, but the figures you see in the stats table are from last year. We haven't updated the table with latest figures yet as we are waiting for a few schools to release their latest stats. I will update the table in next 3-5 days with new stats.

Have a great weekend!
