The committee did not pick the weakest candidate, the President did.

Some Illinois universities to now guarantee admission for top students.

Four state universities in Illinois will now automatically accept first time undergraduate applicants who rank in the top ten percent of their high school graduating class.

This is due to the new Public University Uniform Admission Act.

Provided that these students meet all the admission requirements at the participating universities, they will have a guaranteed admission.

"We believe that grade point average is the best predictor of success in college, and we certainly want to encourage more Illinois students to apply," said Western Illinois University, Director of Admissions, Douglas Freed.

Schools currently participating in this act are Western Illinois University, Northern Illinois University, Southern Illinois University, and Eastern Illinois University.

A whole bunch of gold-plated shovels for an elaborate ground-breaking ceremony. Enough to make Al Goldfarb smile from ear to ear. :lol:
