During Baylor Med’s interview season, many interviewees asked me when the US News and World Report rankings for medical schools (and other graduate schools) come out, and I was spot on with my guess – the middle of April. 🙂
Although these ranks aren’t perfect to begin with (based on the criteria they evaluate), a lot of people use them for a quick comparison between schools for a particular program. I myself am looking forward to see the updated ranks come out this Thursday.
Addendum: In 2011, the ranks came out in the middle of March.
