    Using alumni giving as a way to determine the quality of a school seems so meaningless. Even if it can accurately measure "student satisfaction and post-graduate engagement" it would measure how satisfied alumni from decades are, not just recent graduates.

    Someone paid $100K to get their kid into Chapman. CHAPMAN.

    Thought the same. I wonder: what does prevent any university from asking every graduate for at least 1 dollar just to game the ranking system?

    Nothing.  Most schools do it.  It's why places like Miami make a big push to get the graduating class to contribute to the "class gift" back to the school.  And it's not even primarily about gaming US News.  Institutional research shows that encouraging recent graduates to make small gifts gets them into the habit of donating annually -- and those gifts tend to grow as they progress in their careers.
