Rankings encompass ratings and reviews posted between September 1, 2012 and April 15, 2014 by more than 60,000 current and recent students participating in over 1,500 graduate programs across the nation.

Data used to compile the rankings were obtained from graduate students nationwide via scholarship entries and social media outlets. According to John Karageorge of Graduate Programs, " assigns 15 ranking categories to each graduate program at each graduate school. Rankings cover a variety of student topics such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid and quality of network. For a given graduate program, rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 ranking categories. These scores are then compared across all ranked schools for that program and are translated into a final ranking for that graduate program. A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that program."
