LOS ANGELES (AP) — An investigation has shown that a Claremont McKenna College administrator doctored incoming freshmen's SAT scores and other statistics in an effort to make the school appear more selective.

The Los Angeles Times reports Wednesday (http://lat.ms/HTUl91 ) that the probe by law firm O'Melveny & Myers shows aggregate scores and class ranking data were altered in the data hyping uncovered in January.

The investigation also revealed that former vice president for admission and financial aid Richard Vos said he was responding to pressure from school president Pamela Gann to make the college more selective and did not intend to boost its ranking in U.S. News & World Report listings.

The college-contracted law firm says Gann did not push Vos to take unethical actions.

Vos did not immediately return a call for comment.
