Just along the lines of UNLV, the school just got accredited last year and now they are 82nd on the list. This suprised me too when I looked at the rankings. However, Las Vegas will be the next big city on the west coast and there are a lot of donors and money being pumped into the school. This school will continously go up on the rankings and admission standards will increase. This is a great school for anyone who wants to shape Nevada into what they would like to see because this state is still young.Nevada-Reno grad
I went undergrad to a top ranked school and I found it opened a lot of doors for me... but more important, lukcy for me, it was a place that fit my personality and life style very well ...For grad school I went on pure convenience -- not wanting to rack up too much debt and having to be a "commuter".Now if I choose between Loyola (#65?) and Pepperdine (#99) ... well, I had a good gut feeling about Pepperdine when I visited there ... I loved the location (obviously) and there were some other intangible factors that drew me to it. Meanwhile, I didn't visit Loyola (I don't know why ... but it just didn't happen) and I just haven't felt the click...So my choice is --- third tier where I feel like I can actually have a shot at being in the top of my class and getting some scholarship $$ or a second tier that I don't feel all that excited about ... but is a second tier?What do you guys think?
as a total favor, can someone who has the book tell me what the top 5 business schools are in order? i would be most appreciative!
