U.S.News & World Report Announces the 2013 Best Graduate Schools
- 23rd annual edition is most extensive consumer guide to date with premium research and comparison tools -





WASHINGTON, March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S.News & World Report today released the 2013 Best Graduate Schools rankings online at www.usnews.com/grad. Highlights of the rankings will be published in the 2013 Best Graduate Schools book, on sale April 3, 2012. The most comprehensive version of the upcoming Best Graduate Schools, including all the extended rankings and complete data, will be available online only through the U.S. News Graduate School Compass.

The 2013 Best Graduate Schools includes essential, detailed statistical information on more than 1,200 programs nationwide. In addition to featuring new rankings in five of the largest professional graduate school disciplines (business, law, education, engineering, and medicine), the 2013 rankings also include updated peer-assessment-only rankings for audiology, clinical psychology, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, social work, speech-language pathology, fine arts, and public affairs.

"Many students are unsure as to what they should be looking for in a potential graduate program," said Brian Kelly, editor of U.S.News & World Report. "The new, 2013 graduate school rankings will help any prospective student better navigate the graduate school selection process."

U.S. News made almost no changes to the 2013 Best Graduate Schools ranking methodology and presentation. U.S. News made one change to the 2013 Best Business Schools ranking and methodology. The change was made in how the part-time M.B.A. rankings were computed. For the first time, U.S. News included the percentage of a graduate business school's part-time enrollment, the mean undergraduate GPA of entering part-time students, the mean GMAT of entering part-time students, and the average months of experience of entering part-time students, in addition to the peer assessment score as ranking factors. For more details on these changes, go to www.usnews.com/gradmeth.
