URBANA, Ill. (AP) — University of Illinois officials say a law school dean of admissions is on administrative leave after the university received complaints that grade and standardized test data for the incoming class had been inflated on university literature.

Officials say the data — grade point averages and median Law School Admissions Test scores — had been exaggerated on the university’s website and promotional publications for the class of 2014. The university’s ethics office received a tip last month and the reported inaccuracies were discovered Friday.
