    Major Medical Schools Revolt Against US College Rankings

    Major Medical Schools Revolt Against US College Rankings

    High-ranking medical schools such as UPenn and Stanford revolt against a system that is “based on too much wealth and prestige.” Said schools have now refused to give U.S. news on data they need in order to rank them in this system. The dean of UPenn’s medical school said that the U.S. news encourages students only with high test scores and grades to enroll in such schools when that is inevitably not true. This debate about whether or not schools drop out of the ranking system has occurred at every board meeting for medical educators and needs to stop.

    Hi, my name is Roslyn Barber and I am in the 12th grade at Conrad. My pathway is Biomed. I have decided to join journalism because I enjoy writing about what’s happening now in the world and giving people the information they need. I think it is crucial that the students at Conrad are well informed about school-related activities and events occurring worldwide. I am very excited to be coming back to journalism this year.
