Law School: Our LSAT Data was Bogus

More gavels falling on law school admissions malfeasance?
The University of Illinois acknowledged Monday that its law school reported and/or published inaccurate admissions data in six of the last 10 years.
The university, in a prepared statement, said it had determined that Paul Pless, the law school's former assistant dean for admissions and financial aid, who resigned last week, was solely responsible for the inaccuracies...
Investigators concluded that Pless, who was responsible for reporting the information, "knowingly and intentionally" miscalculated key data to make it seem as if the University of Illinois was showing steady and occasionally dramatic improvement in the main factors used to gauge the academic credentials of a law school class.
Back in 2009, the same law school was accused of corrupt, politically motivated admissions practices.
