URoch vs. Lafayette vs. Babson

Which school has the best reputation in terms of economics/business? Is URoch considered the best because it has the simon graduate school? Or is Lafayette the best because it is a very respectable lac? Perhaps Babson is the best because it is solely a business school? Your thoughts?
There are many things I like about each school and I could see myself at each one. I need to find a way to start leaning towards one over the others and perhaps knowing which school has the best program will help me do that.

    I don't know anything about Lafayette. As for Babson, I think you should consider what kind of education you want because Babson is just business and all business. UR is a university in more than just name. You'll take a wider variety of classes, meet a wider variety of people, etc. I have no idea what fits you.

    I wouldn't place any emphasis on "reputation" because none of these is Harvard but all are good schools - again, not knowing anything about Lafayette. How you do is more important. Who you are as a person is more important, both because it is your life and because you bring that to any job.
