It’s a function of which metrics are counted and how much.

Admit % - 2nd lowest (beat by to GSB)
GMAT - dropped to 728 while other rose
GPA - tied with GSB
Employment rate after graduation - 89% ; low but tied with GSB
Compensation - beaten by 5 other schools, but US news doesn’t take into account stock or other guaranteed comp

From the above, it’s pretty clear that the only metrics holding them down that aren’t fully within their control are the compensation and the employment percentage after grad.

Comp - May be a function of the types of roles being taken and the different kinds of compensation that are or are not counted by US News. I assume the all in would have GSB and HBS as the top comp schools (Maybe Wharton as well).

Employment - The fact that both GSB and HBS are at 89% vs other schools above 90% makes me believe that some of this may be personal choice among students that are taking time to look for something specific.

TL;DR

I’d ignore these rankings and focus on the specific schools and what you tactically want from them. It’ll insulate your decision from a lot of this year to year noise.

Do LORs need to be directly tied to your actual “work”? For context, I have super strong relationships from a Senior Manager on a business development initiative that we worked on for over six months and a supervisor on an initiative for 1.5 years. My issue is since most of my projects have been only 2-3 months at max, I didn’t have time to truly develop those relationships from a project standpoint.
