8 More Colleges Submitted Incorrect Data for Rankings

U.S. News will consider them unranked for the rest of this rankings year, but that punishment will last only a few weeks. Errors included graduation rates, spending per student, average faculty salaries and more. It’s just a few weeks from the next edition of the U.S. News & World Report “Best Colleges” rankings, widely questioned by educators but relied on by many students and parents (and boasted about by some of the same educators who say that the rankings are a lousy way to pick a college). But it turns out that eight of the colleges ranked a year ago submitted information that was sufficiently incorrect that it would have changed their places in the rankings. And so U.S. News has declared them to be “unranked,” a punishment that lasts until Sept. 10, when the new edition comes out.
