'U.S. News' Won't Change Bucknell's Ranking
- Another college admits that it gave 'U.S. News' incorrect data
- In wake of reports on false data, 'U.S. News' considers a new way to promote accuracy
- 'Manipulating,' Er, Influencing 'U.S. News'
- Tulane sent incorrect information to 'U.S. News' for rankings
- Rankings Are Useful -- But Go Beyond 'U.S. News'
U.S. News & World Report announced Monday that it will not change the ranking of Bucknell University even though the institution submitted false data on SAT and ACT averages for several years. When the actual numbers are used, U.S. News says, the changes are so small that they would not change the university's ranking. Bucknell is the fifth college or university to report having submitted false data. U.S. News has moved to "unranked" institutions where the false figures were so different from the real figures that they would have made a difference in the ranking.
