University of St. Thomas Dean Thomas Mengler writes that he should know that no good deed goes unpunished.
After self-reporting a mistake in the statistics it sent to U.S. News and World Report, the school is being severely punished. Without warning and in a blog post no less, it has been deranked. As Mengler points out in an open letter to U.S. News, that’s a departure from its previous policy of not changing schools’ rankings, even if the school lies in its report.
