Posted 17 October 2012 - 03:53 AM

I am planning to apply to UIUC's GSLIS program for Fall 2013. I currently live in Urbana-Champaign (my partner is enrolled in U of I's literature program) and I would prefer to attend the on campus program. However, I am concerned that the on campus program may be more competitive than the LEEP program and I have to wait an entire year to apply to LEEP if I am rejected from the on campus program. Does anyone have any insight as to the acceptance rate differences between the two? I am confident about my SOP and interview essay and I have information science experience and currently work at a library. However, I am worried about my undergraduate transcript. Do I have a better chance with LEEP than with on campus?
