Prophecies Fulfilled

Thursday, I predicted Dartmouth’s alumni giving rank would fall from #2 in U.S. News this year. Using my premium online subscription (don’t ask), I have culled the following ominous data:

1. Princeton – 61%

2. Harvard – 49%

3. Notre Dame – 48%

4. Dartmouth – 47%

5. Duke – 46%

6. Yale – 44%

Also, I think this data follows a couple of years behind the actual giving, so I would accept similar drops in the future.
