Illinois Offers LSAT-Free Admission to Undergrads With 3.0 GPA

Last month, I blogged the rankings implications noted by Tom Bell (Chapman) and Bill Henderson (Indiana) of Michigan's new Wolverine Scholars Program -- in which Michigan undergrads with a minimum 3.80 GPA are admitted to Michigan Law School if they agree to not take the LSAT (LSAT-Free Law School Admissions Can Goose U.S. News Ranking).  Illinois has upped the ante with its Early Admission Program:  Illinois undergrads with a minimum 3.0 GPA will be admitted to the law school without taking the LSAT:

Update: National Law Journal.

Comments

A couple of clarifications: First, Illinois undergrads with a minimum 3.0 gpa will not be admitted, they will be considered for admission. We anticipate that admitted students will have higher gpas, but we want to allow for the Illinois students in difficult, nationally ranked majors such as engineering and mathematics. Second, those who are applying are not prohibited from taking the LSAT. Thanks.
