University of Illinois--Chicago (Liautaud) (IL)
Florida International University (FL)
Kansas State University (KS)
University of California--Riverside (Anderson) (CA)

http://www.find-mba.com/most-popular/usa

FIU--24
Thunderbird --32
UIC--88

Hi Duncan,

Thank you for the reply. I do have one more question in this regard.

Does the school's reputation or quality any way depend on the admission process?

I mean for example in the below list of schools that i have got admit for Fall 2012

1. Florida International University ( IMBA, 1 yr)
2. Kansas State University ( Full time MBA, 2yr)
3. UCR ( Full time MBA, 2 yr) with Fellowship

4. Thunderbird ( Full time MBA, 2 yr)
5. University of Illinois, Chicago (Full time MBA, 2 yr)
6. University of Pittsburgh( Katz school of Business)

The first three schools gave me an admission without an interview, while the last three schools conducted a telephonic interview to evaluate my profile.

Can we infer something here?

Thanks and Regards
Rahul

Well, I think you can infer that they are very keen to have you specifically, because something they can quantify from your application: that could be nationality, work experience or GMAT.

But, yes, the general selectivity of a school is a good clue to quality. But look at overall selectivity, not how selective they are of strong candidates.
