Kaplan Test Prep Comments On U.S. News & World Report’s Just Released 2015 Rankings Of Graduate Schools, Business Schools, Law Schools And Medical Schools

Stocks in this article: GHC

Kaplan Test Prep issued the following statement regarding how prospective students should view U.S. News & World Report’s 2015 graduate school, business school, law school and medical school rankings, which were just released today:

“The U.S. News rankings have long played a role in the graduate school, business school, law school and medical school search process, as they can serve as an aggregate source of data around student population, academic life, job placement and other considerations. But the actual rank of each program is often more important to school administrators and alumni than it should be for prospective students,” said Brandon Jones, vice president of graduate programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “Whether a school ranks 16th or 24th won’t matter in the long run. Ultimately, applicants should seek programs that are the best overall ‘fit’ for their academic, professional, financial, and lifestyle goals and needs.”

In 2013, over 1 million GRE®, GMAT®, LSAT and MCAT exams* were taken by aspiring students and professionals as admissions prerequisites to get into graduate, business, law and medical school, respectively.

To speak with a Kaplan Test Prep expert on how prospective students can best use the rankings as part of the graduate school, business school, law school and medical school admissions process, please contact Russell Schaffer at russell.schaffer@kaplan.com or 212.453.7538.
