That's not exactly true. In order, the top Illinois schools (in terms of CPA exam pass rates in 2011) were the Illinois Institute of Technology (seriously), Olivet Nazarene, Trinity, Wheaton and Northwestern rounding off the top 4 with 66%. UIC? 56.8%. That's good but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's higher than close to all of Illinois schools. No need to overcompensate. In fact, the overall Illinois pass rate was 51.0% (including first-time exams and retakes) so really that's not really that much more impressive.
Still, the UIC recruiting diss appears to be true. Anyone else have any insight to share into the Illinois campus recruiting process?
