Grade-Inflation Scandal Still Haunting Villanova

An organization could have withheld faculty recruitment services from Villanova.


The Association of American Law Schools has placed Villanova University's School of Law on probation for two years for data falsification of its students' grades.

"The association, the main professional organization for law schools in the United States, said it stopped short of imposing tougher sanctions because Villanova had been thorough in investigating the scandal and taking steps to prevent future occurrences," reports Philly.com.

Susan Westerberg Prager, the AALS executive director, wrote in a Nov. 28 letter, that you can read by clicking here, that "the misconduct was intentional and long-standing" and "it is so fundamentally inconsistent with basic concepts underlying AALS core values and bylaws."

The newspaper reported that the grade-inflating stopped around 2009 after the law school's former dean left the school.
