If you change the above to "the scandal is currently meaningless" then I'll agree with your statement.
No way. Meaningless is a strong word, and Nova's drop in rankings will affect "outsiders" perspective right now, in terms of attendance. An uneducated student will choose Temple over Nova for this reason. I've spoken with a few of Temple's admissions people through a few fortunate circumstances, and they have surprisingly played down the situation almost to the point where I inferred Temple's stats "could" be skewed. But that's a topic I do not wish to address in a public forum.
Ultimately, I'm not arguing with you here. By the time we all graduate, Temple and Nova will be equal, with the most "normal" students obtaining the jobs in Philly.
