2016 US News Best Graduate Schools Rankings <3月10日発表予定>

はや2月も終わりを告げようとしておりますが、来月10日(火)には2016 US News Best Graduate Schools Rankingの発表が決まりました。あくまでも、ランキングは出願校調査や選択作業における指標の1つとは言え、出願を検討中、もしくは予定している大学の評価は気になるところですね。

As part of the 2016 Best Graduate Schools rankings, U.S. News will also rank master’s programs in nursing based on both statistical and reputational data for the first time. In addition, schools will be ranked in 10 nursing specialties based on reputation only. Going forward, U.S. News plans to produce rankings of graduate nursing programs annually.

Detailed statistical data collected about each nursing school will be displayed on searchable directory pages on usnews.com, as well as in the “Best Graduate Schools 2016” print guidebook, on sale at newsstands on April 7.

The 2016 rankings will also include various specialties in business, law, education, engineering and medicine, as well as part-time MBA and part-time law programs.

U.S. News will publish new rankings based on peer assessment only for five selected graduate areas in health, which were last updated in 2011. The disciplines that were surveyed and will be ranked are health care management, physician assistant, public health, rehabilitation counseling and veterinary medicine.

Rankings of doctoral programs in the sciences and the social sciences and humanities, master’s degree programs in public affairs, fine arts and library and information studies, and other graduate programs in health will continue to be available on the site. These rankings are based on earlier published surveys and are labeled with the year that they were originally published.

Explanations of the full Best Graduate Schools ranking methodologies and data used to create all the rankings will also be available March 10.

Extended specialty rankings and complete school data will only be available through the subscription-based U.S. News Graduate School Compass, which will offer the most comprehensive information.

U.S. News encourages students to use the Best Graduate Schools rankings as a tool to help choose the right program, not as the sole factor driving their final choice.

Prospective graduate students can use the statistical data that schools report to U.S. News to compare factors such as acceptance rates; scores on the GRE, LSAT, MCAT and GMAT; student-faculty ratios; and job placement success upon graduation.

Along with these concrete measures, other factors to consider include a school’s course offerings and department culture, a student’s total cost to obtain the degree, the advising or mentoring a student can expect to receive and the school’s location and campus life.

The rankings should be a supplement for careful decision-making, not a substitute.

Harvard alumni cite the impact of the school’s reputation. “Harvard Business School has opened a lot of doors and made people almost irrationally willing to hire me,” wrote one graduate. Graduates can also rely on a large and active network. “Alumni are incredibly generous with their time,” said another graduate. “Everyone will meet you for a coffee to share insights, advice and introductions.”

The ranking is based on surveys of the business schools and their graduates of 2011. MBA programmes are assessed according to the career progression of alumni, the school’s idea generation and the diversity of students and faculty.

【GMAT Scoreと入学審査】

 今月に入ってからは、当学院でも次第にGMAT対策講座に関するお問い合わせ件数が増えております。志望校合格に向け、自らが設定した目標スコアを取ることは、アプリカントの誰もが目指すところですが、今回はGMATスコアが入学審査に求められる主だった理由を考えてみたいと思います。

・入学後における学業面のパフォーマンスを予測しうる指標

・卒業後(インターンシップ期間)に必要とされるquantitative能力の判断材料

・入学者の平均スコアとランキングの向上における相関関係

 そうした中で、今月には2015 US News Ranking が発表されました。

 もちろん、各校でRankingに対する尺度は異なってくると思われますが、「アプリカント数を増やし、クオリティーの高い学生の入学」を実践していくことが、アドミッション側の基本的なスタンスとなります。その数を増やすためにも、Rankingの推移は各校にとって大事なマーケティングツールの一つとなってきます。

 「出願に必要なテストだから」という理由のみでGMAT対策に取り組むことなく、そうした背景事情も把握した上で、それぞれの目標スコア獲得に向けて頑張ってください。
