Great ! Thanks much.

How about including rough numbers on ROI for these schools ? BW published an article on payback (link below and attached PDF just incase) but is for 2006 MBA rankings.

Just a note, (as per me), these ROI numbers are bit skewed due to "salary premium" numbers considered in calculation.


I did not include ROI as it is a very subjective criteria. For e.g. an investment banker changing careers into non-profit will probably take 10 years to repay his loan while the person doing the reverse could take less than 3 at the same school. IMHO, it is not as reflective of the quality of the school as much as other factors such as GMAT, GPA etc. I could add the "years to pay back" as a separate column, but I wonder if it would be misleading without supporting data (assumptions on salary foregone and career chosen post-MBA).

Well I have a spreadsheet that I used when researching schools as well. I have updated it with the 2007 numbers. Feel free to play around with the "weights" for each of the factors that I have included and in fact, feel free to add more factors. These is my "rankings" so to speak :)


Thanks dosa! For someone looking for amalgamated rankings from different sources, your spreadsheet is really useful. I kept rankings out of mine as there were too many differing opinions on. Hjort's cluster system offered a good alternative.

Just doing a "random thought" dump here.. but maybe a more objective way to measure the COMPARATIVE ROI would be to:
1) ignore the salary loss while in school
2) alternately, to have it calculate off a typed-in salary
Basically, everyone comes from different salaries, but since we can't predict the future we ASSUME they will all leave with the same salary (the school average).
I guess it is just
(tuition+room+board)/(graduate average salary)

This one is not the amalgamated rankings one (though that should be lying around somewhere too!) :) This is basically a spreadsheet developed by Jay Maven using the US News data that determines the rankings. I just updated the data using the latest rankings. It lets you play around with the weights that are important to you and you can determine some level of rankings.

Slightly different from yours (which I think is extremely beneficial). Mine has averages, and yours have ranges, which is what actually matters anyways.

My bad! I remember you had published a ranking using BW, US news. Actually, I happen to have this same document saved on my laptop. I am not sure where I got it from.

Yes it was floating around but it had last years data. I just spent sometime this morning manually adding data from the latest us news report on to this. Thats why I cut down the number of schools to 18 or so. I did make an approximation on the yield/acceptance rate for GSB/Kellogg because of the SNAFU in the us news report.

I created this spreadsheet when I started the application process last year. It covers 17 schools (those in the UE/E cluster) with stats such as average GMAT, age, and enrollment among others. The list is not ranked in any way; I just wanted to have all the information in one spot instead of having to refer to BW/Vault everytime. Stats are from latest information available on BW or school websites.

I hope to add the deadlines for 2009 season as they are published. I'll also update the excel when BW or the schools themselves publish stats for Class of 2008.

Let me know if you find any mistakes and/or have any suggestions. I hope it can be useful to those who are in the school selection process.

Cheers,
SV


Brilliant! Saved me a lot of time.

I am curious about the specialities...is Cornell really known for entrepreneurship? I have not heard much of this being the case, but I would be pleasantly surprised if so.

interesting, a mod that doesn't have a green name... :P

Cornell and entrepreneurship? I'd trust the US News one more (and even then, I do'nt trust that).

Sometimes the download does not work when I choose "Open" in the dl box. It does work when you select "save as". You might want to try that.
