Moreover, not providing data on time will hurt Stern big time. Most of the users who wants to make it to a business school in the U.S. refers US News and no one will learn about the real reason as to why Stern dropped. They will see at #20, because it is at #20 and this might affect the # of applications at Stern the coming year.

Yale at 8 is laughable. Also, Chicago and Stanford tied for 2? Yikes.... There are ten people on this entire site who would choose Booth over Stanford.

Cannot believe booth is #2... I personally would never choose Booth over HSW after visiting all 4 and working with graduates from all 4.

Why is Yale at 8 laughable?

And you're only half right about Booth. I don't think I know a single person that would choose Booth over GSB - even folks who live in Chicago.

May I ask why you applied to Yale?


I think it's a great school. I don't think it's the 8th best school. I have a nontraditional background and had no idea if the top schools would view it as valuable haha so I cast a wide net (about 10 schools).

I don't understand how this equates to Yale being equivalent to Boston College. There does seem to be a lot of frothing at the mouth anytime Yale is mentioned in any of these rankings or in Poets and Quants :roll:

Tbh, any one half decent/competent can get a job in MBB and BB IB coming out of any of the top 10-12 schools. Where Yale is lagging behind is in the alumni network thats all. Apart from the top 1-4, all these schoools are really the same! From what I have found out from current students, everyone who wanted a job in IB and MBB got one (or more).

While I wouldn't call YSOM laughable, I would also posit there is a bit of gaming the rankings here.

In terms of outcomes, there is a wide gulf on salary, placement (MBB), and elite rotational programs between YSOM and CBS, Tuck, and Haas. Quantitatively, this is reflected in employment rates, starting salaries (an area YSOM decidedly lags significantly), placements (MBB percentage for those going into consulting for instance), and critically the strength of the alumni network, which is where YSOM is really at a disadvantage. This will come with time I would posit, but for the moment (and I would hazard for the next 10 or so years), it is not on par in terms of outcomes as CBS, Tuck, or Haas.

Bearinpoint? lol. I am sure it is a fine company, but I don't know anyone from the Yale class of 2015 who went there. I think your data is flawed.

Most everyone who goes for consulting at Yale does MBB, Deloitte, or Parthenon. There are a few people who end up at boutique firms, but they're less than a handful.

It's unfortunate to see Stern drop so much due to a missed deadline, since rankings sometimes becomes self-fulfilling prophecy. I hope this doesn't impact the school's reputation in the long term.

The other changes in the top schools aren't statistically significant. The quality of the schools on that end are grouped so tight that small variations in stats can move schools up or down. It seems that top 14 schools are always the same, just musical chairs on positions.

I think Yale is a top 10 school.

Brand name, rankings and momentum, while absolutely should not be the sole considerations when choosing schools, are important for a few reasons.

You'd be amazed how strong Yale's halo effect is outside of the US. I worked in the Asia Pacific region for a while, and the overall institution brand name matters much more than the business school itself. Schools like Tuck, Booth and Kellogg are all sold short and underrated relative to their actual strengths.

Rankings and momentum is important in the way that it draws more applicant and improves yield. Perhaps a year ago students may choose Stern/Fuqua/Ross/Darden over Yale, but these upward trends may change those outcomes. Increased applicants and improved yields allow schools to be more selective in admitting students.

In my opinion, the student body is the single most important asset of business schools. Aside from faculty, which Yale has invested in significantly, your peers are the ones who can make your business school experience a pleasant one (or a crappy one).

I will say that Yale has one significant weakness - and that's their alumni network because they're a relatively young program.

I agree with the part about Yale not being as impressive as other top schools when you visit. Also, I do not mean this in a rude or disrespectful way, but every time Yale's rise in rankings/prestige is mentioned, Ted Snyder is also mentioned. Essentially, the success is attributed to him. When I interviewed at SOM, there was a big presentation and then a student panel, and Ted Snyder spoke. Granted I am not the smartest guy, but I had no idea what he was talking about for most of the time -- it was a long rambling message and his point was that his focus on making Yale the most international business school had made it better than all other schools and specifically better than "their neighbors down there in Philadelphia." During the student panel Q&A (which was nice of the students to do for us), one of the interviewees came right out and asked "Yale SOM has the reputation of being a school with a nonprofit management focus and also one with an alumni base that is significantly smaller than other top schools -- has this been your experience?" This resulted in the majority of the Q&A being spent on why this isn't true and also on how Yale SOM students can leverage the broader Yale alumni base i.e. alumni who had gone to Yale for undergrad. My point is that when Deans at other business schools I visited spoke, I din't hear them disparage other schools (and for the most part I could understand them), and, when I attended other schools' student presentations, I heard them talk more about what they liked about the school, what they planned to do in their careers, and how the school had helped. (Not that it was the SOM students fault that someone asked the question -- the point is that it clearly struck a sensitive nerve). Overall, definitely agree that SOM benefits tremendously from the reputation of the affiliated university...

Most likely it is because NYU did not submit the complete (and perhaps the more important) data elements on time.

Check out this link: http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/c ... s-rankings



That makes a lot more sense..... but seems like an un-necessary punishment by US News. I am not convinced that was the right move, though I guess adcom now knows how we feel when they disqualify something. This sucks...

While US News may not want to update their rankings, I will be happy to do that on GMAT Club to reflect the True position of the School....


BB what do you think Stern's true position would be had they turned in everything on time? I was thinking perhaps a 3 way tie for 3rd? But I'm certainly no expert on all this...

I think the "Yale is ranked #8 because of their brand name" is pretty laughable logic. Don't you all know that Yale SOM was named Yale last year and the year before that as well? Their name didn't just become Yale all of a sudden. They moved up to #8 because they have improved in the measurable standings that US News uses to rank business schools.

For the record, I don't think Yale should be ranked as the #8 b-school in the country, but that's not an insult to Yale -- that's more of a commentary on the US News rankings system than anything.


It is a good point, but I think you are overlooking one thing. Every single person with stats above a certain threshold applies to the top few schools and then a few schools that are outside of the top ten. I would say a huge percentage of these "elite candidates" figure that if they are going to apply to a slightly lower ranked school, it might as well be Yale because of the prestige of the name. I am guessing this probably makes it easier to quickly inflate your average GMAT scores, etc... Although, you could make the argument that this was the case a few years ago as well...

Here is a bit of analysis in terms of the average GMAT score changes year over year.
Kellogg has had the biggest change, going 11 points up.
Currently the school with the highest GMAT score is still Stanford, followed by Wharton.
