Poets & Quants Rankings

I'm undergrad at UW - Madison. Obviously a non-target, but has some pull in Chicago and nationally recognized, I have some badger pride uk? It sorta irks me that our b-school last year was ranked #21 last year and is now ranked #31 on P&Q. Are P&Q rankings bullshit? They obviously have the targets in the right place, but out of the top 10 does anybody seriously trust their rankings? Thanks, just want some thoughts on their website - also interested in comments on their MBA rankings/profiles.

I can understand how you're feeling but I wouldn't think about it too much. Most people here quote USNWR rankings and they are kinda garbage, both for undergraduate and MBA levels. Columbia over Stanford? WashU over Cornell and Berkeley? Booth and Kellogg over HBS? 

Looking at P&Q, they also have Booth and Kellogg over HBS but at least have GSB at 1 instead of Booth. Undergrad ones look off as well if I'm looking at the right list. Marshall (USC) over Dyson (Cornell), Stern (NYU), Ross (Michigan), Haas (Berkeley), etc.?
