U of I College of Law Posts Corrected Student Data

September 19, 2011

University of Illinois officials say its College of Law has posted corrected student profile information online.

Urbana-Champaign campus officials say the corrected median entrance exam scores and median undergraduate grade point averages for the class of 2014 were posted Monday. College of Law admissions dean Paul Pless was placed on leave earlier this month and an investigation was started into whether the school previously posted inflated test scores and grades.

School officials say the inquiry into the posting of the original data continues. Urbana-Champaign campus provost Richard Wheeler says the law school "sincerely regrets'' the original inaccuracy. Wheeler says the investigation's findings will be shared when it is completed.

The snapshot data of law school students are often used to attract future students, among other things.
