My friends who took ILR stats said that they didn't like the stats prof and the class involved a lot of interpreting weird problems. But at the end of the day, they were happy they took ILR stats instead of the other ones. I have friends who work at the Stat lab and the students who came for help the most were 1. MATH stats (arts)/ Hotel Stats 2. AEM 3. PAM 4. ILR ( very rarely).
I can't give you my perspective since I took AEM, but really...stats is stats. I didn't enjoy it, but I'm glad that class is out of my way.
