Dobson: Stop whining about rankings

Senior Logan Dobson advises that students and administrators stop complaining about how GW is ranked in publications, and instead accept that GW should work to improve.

It’s hard to get the GW community united.

But if there is one thing that students and administrators alike can agree on, it is this: the people who rank colleges are out to get us.

Maybe it is the fact that our tuition is so high and we feel like we have to defend our investments. Maybe it’s because our campus is so political that the us-versus-them attitudes of public discourse pervade all aspects of our education.

Or maybe it’s because GW has such tremendous school spirit that we instinctively defend our college. Ok, no, it’s definitely not that last one.
