    We have a significant overlap so I am not sure why you feel I’m too focused on brand/prestige

    i think Minnesota and Bocconi are great schools: but look at where they place PhDs. It’s not the same as other schools on your list.

    Number of publications alone is a poor metric, because it's quantity over quality.

    I completely understand your point, and it’s certainly a fair one on the surface, although placement is a much more complex issue than this implies, and there is an issue of aggregating complex dynamics to a simplified comparable measure. I was speaking about direct research rankings, it even those are much more complicated than it would seem.
    This is hard work

    Again, sure, sort of, even if an A across top schools is generally an A, but this only introduces more subjectivity into the picture.

    Some schools would like you to think it really is about quantity vs quality, but in reality is quantity vs. quantity AND quality.
    This is hard work

    Agreed. The sort of traditional way of looking at it was 'lots of A publications= symptom of a good dept/school', however now it seems like some schools/depts are trying to boost their ranking by becoming publication mills. UT-Dallas comes to mind. In terms of publication quantity they're right up there with the top 5/10, but I don't think anyone really considers them anything more than top 50.
