VLS Statement on Admissions Data
In January 2011, the Law School discovered that inaccurate information had been provided to the American Bar Association regarding the LSAT scores and grade point averages of several entering classes. In its investigation, the Law School discovered that inaccurate numbers of admissions offers were reported for several entering classes. The Law School took immediate and comprehensive measures to investigate this matter and confirmed the accuracy of all reported admissions data for the 2010 entering class, including LSAT scores, GPAs, the number of applications, the number of admissions offers, and the composition of the 2010 entering class. Thus, the admissions data concerning the entering class of 2010 contained on this website is accurate. As part of its investigation, the Law School had the University’s Controller’s Office conduct an internal review of its financial data and an independent auditor conduct an audit of its employment data. They found no material reporting errors. The Law School deeply regrets this occurrence, has held those responsible accountable for their actions, has taken appropriate steps to correct the inaccurate submissions, and has reconfigured its admissions reporting process and organizational structure as part of its commitment to a reporting system which is above reproach.
On August 15, 2011, the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association issued its decision with regards to this matter. Please click here to view.
