A WSJ Inside Higher Ed article:
…for getting into Yale Med, Chicago Business and all those other elite business, medical and law schools. Below, our list of the top 50 “feeder schools,”
based on our count of how many of their alumni started this fall at 15 select grad programs (see “Behind the Rankings”). The rankings are based on the
number of students a college sends to a grad school divided by the college’s class size—our Feeder Score.
One thing to keep in mind that the ranking does not mention – the number of graduates from a particular school that apply to grad school but instead choose to postpone grad school to instead undertake another endeavor – i.e. getting a job in order to get some work experience.
