Every year schools will reach out to lawyers for donations (we won't count bequests). Then we rank schools based on donations per capita for average class size. Biggest spender wins. Just like real life it will favor the old money institutions, but it will also allow successful alums to vote up their alma maters, and allow unhappy or broke grads to withhold donations, or even vote for other schools.
Instead of driving up tuition, the rankings should drive it down by providing an alternative revenue stream and rewarding efficiency.
I'm not sure how the bolded differs from the current rankings, but srsly, I like it.
