There are many factors which applicants consider throughout the interview trail and while creating their rank lists. One of the most common concerns is the perceived reputation or "tier" of a program. This question will be broken into two parts: first, what factors influence the reputation of a program (eg research output, national prominence, notable faculty/alumni)? Second, should the reputation of a program influence an applicant's decision, and if so, why? Please discuss how the answers to these two questions can vary per specialty.
