this might be a silly question, how are these rankings arrived at?

No idea. I am willing to guess the whole issue has something on methodology.

They ask other teachers and professionals in the discipline. the schools with the highest number of votes get higher on the list

I think the list includes some great places but I think the MFA candidate needs to choose a place where they will be able to pursue what they want and study with someone who will support and mentor them.
It takes some investigation to find the right fit.
