Question about the Ranking


New Member
So as you guys may know, average salary differs per state; Cali and NY are give one the highest average salaries in the US. Since 15% of ranking criteria is basked on average salary, how is that fair for other schools in areas where average salary is lower? In my opinion, I think curriculum is major successful factor for how good a program is, how is that absent from ranking criteria? One last thing, acceptance rate is worth 2.5%, well, let's see ranking is up, so is the number of applicants, therefore the acceptance rate is lower, and vice versa for those schools with lower ranking; the 2.5% could puts them in vicious circle. I just have these questions in mind, and I could be absolutely wrong, who know, if anyone have any thought on the matter, please share.
