How reliable B school rankings are

Sharing profit: Hyderabad B-school invites 'rejects' to re-apply : http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Cities/Hyd-B-school-rejects-can-re-apply/articleshow/4690154.cms
It's the news!!! One of the top 20 schools in the world is struggling to get the applicants? Offering discounted rates?
FT should judge the schools on more realistic grounds.

Said a Blade of Grass by Khalil Gibran

Said a blade of grass to an autumn leaf, "You make such a noisefalling! You scatter all my winter dreams."
Said the leaf indignant, "Low-born and low-dwelling! Songless,peevish thing! You live not in the upper air and you cannot tellthe sound of singing."
Then the autumn leaf lay down upon the earth and slept. And whenspring came she waked again--and she was a blade of grass.
And when it was autumn and her winter sleep was upon her, andabove her through all the air the leaves were falling, she mutteredto herself, "O these autumn leaves! They make such noise! Theyscatter all my winter dreams."
