If gmatclub shows you anything its that a huge number of you will end up at Kellogg, Chicago, or Ross...then a handful of folks to Harvard, Wharton, and Duke. Then a much smaller to places like NYU, Tuck, Darden...one lucky person might end up at Stanford.

So per gmatclub Kellogg, Chicago, and Ross are the best.

I am pretty shocked Darden slipped to #16 and it is disappointing, it is an excellent program.

Dont put too much into the rankings...see who recruits there and then form your own opinions. There are lots of great MBA programs. #16 isnt bad and Darden still provides great career opportunities....just ask Pelihu

Cmon Kwam, jokes aside, for those applicants that really don't know any better, the two schools are NOT that different. I think the differences are way overblown. People at both schools have fun, and people at both schools get jobs in various fields of business.

If you get into either school, consider yourself fortunate. I haven't heard an alum from either school talk negatively about their experience.

It seems a nice project with the building. As for the relationship you know that you guys are good in marketing, right?

MGOBLUE you're totally right, all schools are excellent, and honestly I wouldn't sweat too much if any school didn't do well in the ranking - although it's nice to see your school doing well - once one get into one of these caliber of schools you most likely will have many opportunities.

I've seen many people "angry" around the forums because of Yale, that Chicago shouldn't be ahead HBS and Wharton, and Ross ahead of Stanford, and this is just "time waste" kind of discussion. Honestly, Yale is "la crem della crem" in terms of education, and even though its B school still lags compared to others schools in terms of general perception, nobody will laugh at you (being extreme here) with and MBA form Yale SOM. Neither will from any school. Actually I've met during my corporate conversations, many people from schools ranked at the 20-30 range from BW and USNews.

And yes, the midwest is now the official Gmatclub Hub, I was for instance at an Accounting study group a couple of hours a ago and among the 4 within the group 3 are Gmatclubbers: wallspotter, nicksun and me. I believe that at Kellogg and at Ross is the same thing.

I think that this ranking is crap, the real ranking would be:

Chicago
*
*
*
*
MIT Sloan (for having admitted me)
*
*
*
Other (Kellogg and Ross tied for the "midwest" factor)
*
*
*
Columbia (for my ding after interview)
*
*
*
*
Stanford (for my ding without interview - sorry terry :lol: )

Sorry about this joke, prospective student stress down here too right? With this cheering I was just also stressing down. This week I've been moving by caffeine, heheehe. I promise I will stop cheering from now on.

Now I have to apply for some internships...

I don't mind people rah rah-ing about their schools, but mentioning 10 schools without even a whisper of HAAS? Blasphemy! :P

There are 4-5 of us from GMATClub at Haas, more than the number that went to HBS, Wharton, or Duke. :)

Hmph. No offense taken :-D

If anything, the incoming gmatclubbers should be inspired to apply to Stanford to increase club representation here. Come on guys!

I know - I am a second year at Darden along with Pelihu - that is part of the reason I am so surprised. The school seems to be taking this slight pretty seriously. Apparently the class of 2008 had some negative things to say about the program combined with Darden's professors not publishing as much as other top schools - it hurt the brand a little bit. But I have no doubt this school belongs at the edge of the top 10 - not the mid teens.
