    This ranking is a scam. MBA placement indicates how good the programs were 10 years ago, not today. Also, it favors larger programs.

    lol at byu at 8 (I bet the mormons made this ranking).
    lol at indiana at 10.
    lol at cmu only at 16.
    LOL at usc only at 21.

    I am not very surprised bu USC and Illinois...but I am by Cal. I think the USNWR ranks it too high, but it is still a top 10 Business school.

    Gatorade, what do you mean, why 10 years ago, even if it was a while ago, you don't think this is at all an accurate measure?

    IS BW internationally published in different languages etc? How much of an authority is it? Will business recruiters use this at all or will anyone who counts generally be influenced by this?

    Just an example, CMU's Tepper(btw I'm not going there so I'm not trying to promote it) was only founded about 5 years ago. Before, it had a program for undergrad, but I don't think it had even close to the resources it has today. Also, it has a class size of 80, which probably hurts it in this type of ranking, even though they do generally well. Also, the average student in Tepper is much more qualified than an average student at a school like Indiana.

    Acceptence rate was 20% last year to Tepper. This year, they doubled in apps, so I would guess that acceptence rate dropped to 10-15%.

    Sounds about right. Villanova, Lehigh, BYU, Emory and Notre Dame are ranked a little high, but otherwise, I think it is a fair ranking.
