I think that for students who want to stay in Illinois and not have to worry about the LSAT or admissions it could still be a good plan. The problem is that they don't ever know what other schools their high GPA could get them into and , of Clyde, now we know Illinois ranking is fabricated.
How did he fabricate number of apps? Isn't that number known?
I still don't understand why he didn't just admit students who had high scores- if he is lying about the number of apps, he is protecting his yield without needing to waitlist peoplefor yield protection.
To me, the main problem with iLeap is that you screw yourself if you don't get in to Illinois, because by not taking the LSAT, you rule out any other school. If you put all your eggs in the iLeap basket and you don't get in, you are waiting a year before you can apply again.
I don't think iLeap is flawed, but I do think it is only for those people who are "Illinois or bust!"
