Automatic admission considered for cream of the crop

SPRINGFIELD -- It could soon be easier for the state's top students to get into college.
SPRINGFIELD -- It could soon be easier for the state's top students to get into college. They could get automatic admission to any state school as long as it's in Illinois.

They'd have to get at least a 28 on the ACT and have a minimum 3.5 GPA, plus, they'd have to go on to study math, science or technology. Supporters say more students would stay in-state instead of going to out-of-state schools with the plan.

Critics say it's unfair to let all kids in who meet the requirements since some test better than others. They say college admissions considers more than just GPA's.
