We thought you might like to know that Hechinger Report has an article explaining the correlation between college rankings and college application volumes. Financially for the colleges and career wise for many key school officials, much is at stake as the report clearly shows. And while it certainly doesn’t justify the rankings manipulations some schools have been caught doing red handed, it does, nonetheless, help to explain it.
We hope this serves as one more reminder why rankings should be taken with a grain of salt and why fit should always be the most important criterion when shortlisting your list of colleges.
Best of luck with your applications!
Keep up with us on:
The same schools that purport to hate these rankings willingly commit fraud to look better in them.
