College admissions in Illinois, conclusion?

U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Chancellor Resigns in Wake of Admissions Scandal
Richard Herman, chancellor of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has resigned in the wake of an admissions scandal in which well-connected applicants were put on a "clout list" and given preferential treatment, the Chicago Tribune reported on Tuesday. Mr. Herman, who made a remorseful apology to the faculty after a state panel found he was the "ultimate decision maker" for clout-listed applicants, will join the university's faculty. His resignation follows those of the university president last month and several trustees.

I mistakenly enrolled in University of Illinois Springfield - not the Urbana campus and in their online program vs. online... It seemed like a good flexible choice for a quality economics education, yet from what I've seen so far, the poor choices didn't stop at the Chancellor - the way these programs are run are very poor - no direction from instructors, no participation in the learning process, definitely a scary thing that these guys are granting degrees to students...
