LOS ANGELES — Claremont McKenna College exaggerated the collective SAT exam scores of incoming freshman classes for the last six years, boosting statistics used for national school rankings, an internal probe has found. A senior official in the school's admission office has taken responsibility and resigned, according to a campus announcement Monday from the school president.
"As an institution of higher education with a deep and consistent commitment to the integrity of all our academic activities, and particularly our reporting of institutional data, we take this situation very seriously," President Pamela B. Gann wrote in a memo distributed at the prestigious liberal arts college, which enrolls about 1,321 students.

In the thin strip of land separating challenge and undying aggravation, the checkpoint is king. As it goes, so often goes a game's fate, especially when it's a horror game crawling with elements seemingly designed to purposefully work against you.
