    ND and Rice are definitely brand name MBAs – companies do pay a premium for them!  Glad to see them moving up.  Not sure how Fordham University rose 8 spots.  Their placement is among the worst and their class profile by GMAT is not so competitive (609 mean)

    You should make clear when referring to Rochester Institute of Technology by “RIT”, as it’s widely known, rather than “Rochester”, lest it confuse people the analysis is about the University of Rochester, which is a research-oriented, more preeminent,  and higher-ranked school.

    i don’t think its safe to assume they went through alumni, it could have been previous network, family connections or plain old hard work, mck is physically very close to Gtown someone could get a foot in the door the old fashioned way.
