Tulane Freeman School of Business Misreported Some Admissions Data

December 20, 2012

On December 19, Tulane University in New Orleans informed U.S. News that it had recently discovered that its Freeman School of Business had misreported certain data reported to U.S. News: average GMAT scores for full-time MBA students entering in fall 2011 and the total number of applicants. The school also said that these same data points were misreported for the fall 2010 class and possibly in earlier years. These misreported figures were used by U.S. News as part of the ranking of the Freeman School of Business in our 2013 Best Business Schools, as well as in our previous years' rankings. Tulane said it didn't know yet what the correct numbers were and how significantly different they were from what was originally reported to U.S. News.
