Prestigious College Faked SAT Scores to Boost Rank
Claremont McKenna College administrator inflated scores By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff

Claremont McKenna College is currently ranked by US News and World Report as the nation’s ninth-best liberal arts college—but, the college admitted yesterday that ranking is based on falsified SAT scores. The small California school says that since 2005, “a senior administrator,” who has since resigned, submitted false scores to US News & World Report and other publications that rank colleges. Insiders say Richard C. Vos, vice president and dean of admissions, is responsible, the New York Times reports. The scores were only inflated by an average of 10 to 20 points each, and it is unclear whether the revelation will affect any of the school’s rankings.
