Predict the 2019 U.S. News MBA Ranking—Win a $200 Amazon Gift Card

It’s back!  

The last two years, our Predict the U.S. News Business School Ranking Contest was so popular, we brought it back for a third year in a row.

With U.S. News & World Report slated to release its annual ranking of top MBA programs next week, we thought it might be fun to let you—our readers—weigh in with a ranking of your own. U.S. News has provided a sneak peek of which schools will make up this year’s top 10. Now it’s your turn to predict the order in which those 10 schools stack up.

To compile its rankings, U.S. News takes a weighted average of several indicators, including overall program quality, peer assessments, recruiter assessments, placement success, mean starting salary and bonus, average GMAT score and GPA, student selectivity and acceptance rate.

With that information in mind, now it’s your turn! 

Using the form below, give us your best guesses for what the rankings will reveal next week when they are released. Submit the same order published by U.S. News  by Monday, March 19th at Midnight EST (or when the results are announced) and you could win a $200 Amazon.com Gift Card.* (In the event of multiple correct responses, one winner will be chosen at random.) Be sure to provide your email address so we can contact you if you win. The winner will be announced on Thursday, March 22nd.

And…as an added bonus, we’ll share the Top 10 MBA programs as guessed (read: voted on) by you, the Clear Admit audience.

*Contest not open to employees of Clear Admit, any MBA program faculty or administration, or employees of US News.

Happy ranking!
