Opting Out of the U.S. News Rankings

Interesting article in the Atlantic Monthly by Colin Diver, former Dean at Penn and currently President of Reed College, on his college's decision to refuse participate in the U.S. News college rankings. (Hat Tip: our sister Leiter's Law School Reports, which notes that "Penn, of course, has taken the art of gaming the rankings, across the boards, to quite remarkable heights: in both law and the undergraduate rankings, Penn ranks well ahead of where even its US News reputational scores would put it. I always had the sense that Diver was never happy about the pressure to perform in US News when he was Dean at Penn, so it is nice to see that Reed has opted out so successfully.")
